Truth hurts, eh?

What about the attack that America has been under, since Bush was sworn in? When someone apologizes for THAT, then I'll worry about how that millionaire failure you dullards idolize feels about my criticism.

Meanwhile, you'd better pray that there isn't a major hurricane or other disaster here until about 2010.

What genius! Whip up some excitement with a movie and then get into a business that profits from it. Is this a great country or what?

what about the millionaire failure YOU idolize? after all , if Gore is so clever and Bush so stupid, why is Bush President and Gore an ex-contender? I will admit though, Gore has a talent for money-making fraud.

Typical RePERVlican misdirection. The Goat guy didn't say *anything* about Gore, and I would guess with that level of cynicism, he doesn't think any more of him than he does of Bush.

Goat *did* focus on Bush's numerous shortcomings, however. If you can't see them, perhaps you should get new glasses. If you can't get health insurance with a vision plan, you'll have to wait until the Democrats get to the White House in 2009.

typical of all windy-bottomed liberal loonies, you can never explain why your guy LOST. Al Gore is a fat loser in politics, and a big success as a con-man.

What a God-damned farce!!!! Venture-capitalist group??? LMAO

This is only Stage I in the initial phase of a Gore-inspired scam and cottage industry of "Energy Credits". Not unlike the $$millions that Jesse Jackson extorted from Corporations to avoid being labelled as racist or discriminatory.

I've got to hand it to Gore. While he is a lousy politician, he's a marketing guru.

Had he not devised this bullshite with Kleiner Perkins, I would have recommended that he self-enroll as a wax-figure at San Francisco's "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" museum....

Gore seems to like the money a lot more than the environment;
