Cincinnnati Post managing editor Mark Neikirk:

With his lizard eyes and pale, pasty, pudgy face, Al Gore lacks the weathered-by-wind look authors out to save nature ought to have.

Unfair! You try living in a permanent Gore Effect, pal. You’re not exactly going to get a suntan.

UPDATE. Al’s pal totally beclowns herself:

Actress Cameron Diaz appears to have committed a major fashion faux pas in Peru. The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated “Shrek” films may have inadvertently offended Peruvians who suffered decades of violence from a Maoist guerrilla insurgency by touring here Friday with a bag emblazoned with one of Mao Zedong’s favorite political slogans ...

Diaz wore over her shoulder an olive green messenger bag emblazoned with a red star and the words “Serve the People” printed in Chinese on the flap, perhaps Chinese Communist leader Mao’s most famous political slogan.

    Ha ha ha. I like it.

    Must find an opportunity to steal that line.

  6. #5 Indeed we do Paco.

    They’ve repeated it at least four times this week. Fortunately, the first time I had an appointment to clean up the elephant enclosure at Melbourne Zoo. The second time, I required sewing needles to be inserted under my toenails. The third time, I’m pretty sure I was washing my hair that day. All day. And the fourth time I was busy filling in forms for the impending birth with the name “Packypus”.

    Wait.  Al Gore as Jean Genie?

    Sits like a man but smiles like a reptile….

  9. #7 Probably significantly more truthful too. And enjoyable.

    Not to be cruel to those elephants, but every time I turned around and saw their rear ends, I was sure Al Gore was following me.

  10. Paco, did I ever tell you about the misfortune that occurred to a copy of “Bowling for Columbine” that was gifted to me?

  11. Lizard eyes.  What a perfectly apt description!

    As for Cameron Diaz, she’s merely typical of the average Hollywood liberal:  political philosophy as fashion accessory.

  12. “Serve the People”.

    Reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode, where the aliens had a book called “To Serve Man”.  Turns out it was with a bearnaise sauce.

    Or maybe Mao used sweet & sour?  Lord knows he had a few dozen bodies to work with.

    Oh, and Cameron Diaz is a twat.

  15. #14 I left it on the floor just after I opened it, and then I wandered off to do something.

    When I came back a while later, I found that the cat had crouched atop it and did something that smelled horrifically nasty. I wasn’t sure whether to punish the cat for doing such things inside, or whether to praise it for doing such things on a Michael Moore DVD.

    Chairman Mao (cue graphic: Picture of Mao) was finally laid to rest this week after much discussion as to what to do with his body. After weeks of debate, it was decided that the fallen Chinese leader be buried in a takeout cemetery. (cue graphic: gigantic folded cardboard carryout container.) The family decided this would be best, as it’s cheaper, it’s open twenty-four hours a day, and it’s within delivery distance of Peking.

    Heh.  I suppose after a couple of decades of periodic personal reinvention, he might seem rather chameleon like.

    Does this have anything to do with the birth of Al Gore coming almost exactly nine months after the Roswell, New Mexico “landing”?

  25. I’ll have you know, that Mao did “Serve the People”.

    He just served them to other people.

    Not quite what I expected, although the blue scarf makes her look guru-like.
    President of a company, that makes her really important, doesn’t it. Earnest. She’s really earnest about saving the world.
    And she is a university academic.
    I stopped watching.

    I find that report a bit sus… it seems to say that the atrocity was reported by the BBC.  Unlikely of them to report such a thing so unfavourable to the islafascists.

    But if there had been a coalition helo within 50 miles…..

  33. While dutifully getting my car scammed by a useless tax grab emissions-tested today, the waiting lounge featured the superb treat of a TV playing ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.

    I had almost forgotten how whiny, shitty, melodramatic, self-congratulatory and above all INACCURATE that travesty of a fifth-grader’s PowerPoint presentation is.

    This is just like when another hottie, Pamela Anderson supported the excreable PETA.

    It changes nothing I tell you.

    Hell, I’ve just learnt that Angelina Jolie is a hardcore lefty moonbat who indirectly supports the people who beheaded Daniel Pearl. I’d still have a go.

  36. On the Diaz bag: I can’t find a single photo that shows the bag clearly enough so that I can actually see whether it has 为人民服务 written on it. The blurred characters look like the five required (although it’s impossible to tell exactly), but didn’t anyone get a shot of the bloody slogan so that it could be seen plainly? The msm really is pathetic. Give us a photo we can read, man…

  37. Mention the horrors of the Cultural Revolution to Cameron Diaz or Drew Barrymore or some other professional goodlooker, and they’re likely to think it has something to do with Evangelical Christian Republicans.
