"In a wide-ranging talk about the Internet and government..."

Meaning, Gore rambled on and on and on.

"To fix what he called a no-longer functional U.S. government, Gore urged the audience to begin a new “Occupy Democracy” movement. He pushed for the creation and implementation of digital tools and social media to “change the democratic conversation.”"

Ahh... nothing like automated and coordinated spam and spambots.

"Gore talked of a “Wiki-democracy” of “digital flash mobs calling out the truth” and “a government square that holds people accountable.”

Confirming what I just said.

"Truth"? Inconvenient to be sure.

Sadly, you manual trolls on Topix will be replaced with new automatic full bandwidth spambots.

"To applause, Gore added"

Of course there's applause -- Gore wouldn't have shown up otherwise.

God DAMN but it's nice to see a politician who has some sophistication, who understands modern technology, and who has a progressive vision for the future.

How much BETTER off would we have been had Bush not been handed the 2000 election by the Supreme Court? Gore was head and shoulders above that little scrap of Texas cow crap.

You GO, Al! What a contrast with the idiots running for President on the GOP side!

Which right-wing asshats love when THEY'RE driving them, but not, for some reason, when "liberals" are.

All part of the comprehensive package of hypocrisy provided by your Modern American Right.

Not a single meaningful comment on Gore's words. There's a word for THAT, however:

Troll.

No, the hypocrisy comes for people like Gore who preach to us about not leaving our carbon footprints all over, all while he flies around in his private jets, drives around in his big fancy gas hog limos, has multiple mansions that use more electricity in one month then my house does in an entire year. Just another bitter progressive who says: Do as I say, not as I do!

Gore is nothing but a scam artist who stole 100's of millions from us with his man-caused global warming BS.

So where does the difference lie?

Vs. Gore, the modern American Right generally doesn't go around preachin' and cluckin' to any idyot in the world fool enough to waste their time to listen to them that their skies are falling.

Still no significant comments by you. Yes, it IS time you went back under your bridge, I'd say.

That's because you're either too damn dumb to understand global warming, or you're too much in bed with Big Energy to admit it.

ps - No one's saying that "the skies are falling," doucheclown.

so are you saying he doesn't fly around in his private jet? Or he doesn't ride around in his gas guzzling limo? Or he doesn't own mansions where his power bill in one month is larger then mine for the entire year? Maybe you're saying he has made 100's of millions off his man-caused global warming scam....

No talking points.. just flat out facts!

No, I'm saying those things are meaningless and, coming from a supporter of the Corporate Right, hypocritical.

Except for the "man-caused global warming scam," which is the product of your disordered mind.

The Reich-wingers have to attack Gore on insignificant crap. The Deniers have spent 100's of MILLIONS to brainwash the American public into being confused about science. They've designed their playbook directly from the successful efforts of the cigarettes makers to kill MILLIONS of people with their defense of tobacco.

Fess up! You're not a legit Gorite or else you'd be up on the latest AGW terminology.
The latest leftie fad?
It's no longer simply "global warming"!
It's "man-induced global climate change"

Well, any why you phrase it, our decendants of the late 21st century and into the 22nd century will have Gore and the rest of you left wingers recorded in their history module in at least one of the three following manners...

1)...S-C-A-M
2)...F-R-A-U-D
3)...H-O-A-X
