SILENT AL

A teacher friend calls to say: “I recently oversaw a class assigned to watch An Inconvenient Truth. It was so terrible I turned it off and made them do crossword puzzles instead.” Well done, teach! Meanwhile, J. R. Dunn wonders: where’s Al?

Al Gore appears to have taken a break from saving the world, having convinced large numbers of otherwise sensible people that something called “global warming” exists. He can be expected back in short order. Evidence that “warming” has in fact not occurred since 1998 is swiftly becoming public knowledge. Who but St. Al can lead the righteous in beating back this heresy?

Might Al emerge in … Denver?

    1. Dean is panicing that Denver will be 1968 all over again.  Al is going to be the guy on the white horse.

    1. I predict glaciers will advance on Denver prior to the convention.  Look for the convention center to be buried under a massive ice sheet.

    1. Shacked up with Flannery?

    1. As Denver braces itself for a double whammy – thousands of shrieking, blinking, sun-befuddled moonbats for the Donk convention, plus the dreaded howling arctic white-out known as the “Gore Effect”…

      Brrrrrrrrrr…

    1. Rachel Carson was probably a nice person, but her views on the environment died when she died in 1964. That’s 44 years ago, almost as old as I am. Can’t we now move on?

    1. IIRC, Al Gore is a superdelegate for the Dhimmicratic Demoncratic Democratic National Committee.  He’s certain to be in Denver.

      As Room 237 sez in #1, he’ll be the dude on the white horse, striving to save the DNC from final meltdown.  He might actually succeed, but expect him to stick it to the Clintons as hard and as deep as he can.

      This Gerbil Warmening thing?  It’s yesterday to him.  He made his stash, had another 15 minutes of fame, yadda yadda yadda.  Now back to his real agenda: revenge!

      (Note to self:  Popcorn.  Buy lots of popcorn.  Before Denver.)

    1. I’ve just had a nightmare vision of St. Al working flat-out on a diet/exercise/liposuction program …

    1. So it’s to be Barack and Silent Al at the Doomicrat Convention, is it?  Dealing their own particular brand of political wacky backy, no doubt.

    1. We can only hope that Barack and Hillary will be exactly tied in delegates without Al’s vote…

    1. Evidence that “warming” has in fact not occurred since 1998 is swiftly becoming public knowledge.

      As is knowledge that for the next ten to twenty years there will probably be Global Cooling because of ocean currents (uh, never put into those famous computer models?), possibly worse without sunspots to affect the Solar Wind (another factor not in those models?).

    1. Hoho, three big amigos ego agogo. Should be fun. Don eat all that popcorn TRJ, or are you trying to corner the market early?

    1. …are you trying to corner the market early?

      That’s what Lord Karl told me to do.  Or didn’t you get a copy of that operations order?

    1. I live right near Denver.  I am so dreading this convention.

    1. From my impeccable sources, Al’s been occupying himself with rigorous research:

    1. Hmm. What’s a seven letter word for “Anus; extremely vulgar”? It starts with an “a”.

    There you go, mucking up their elegant “hockey stick”…
