The entire planet knows that if Al Gore had run for president in 2008 it would have been a slam dunk. So why didn't he do it considering the very life of western civilization is at stake as well as the ongoing Bush/Republican rape of Mother Nature, affecting polar bears, ozone holes, global warming, melting icebergs, fossil fuel poisoning, the trashing of what's left of environmental protection laws, and on and on to the certain death of our children's environmental future?

Yes, the man has his personal priorities and all that, but there may be literally no time in western history when it was so LIFE AND DEATH that an individual stand up and be counted as Al Gore and 2008 . . . and he's taken a pass.  Boy, has he ever taken a pass.

Has his life been threatened?  Certainly, a possibility.  More egocentrically, he is elite, after all, Democratic Party notwithstanding.  Politics has NOTHING to do with the elites, and maybe he just doesn't want to let go of that high class international elite existence. 

Bottom line, who knows, but I hope he realizes down to his quarks that he could have been the man of the century, perhaps even the millennia and he flipped it all off. 

Al, we needed you like something to grab onto when you're drowning and going down for the 3rd time.  We needed you like we needed someone to dash into the street to rescue our child from a racing car.  We needed you like someone to give the country an antidote to anthrax.  We needed you like a veritable mythological hero of yore.  NEVER has an American been so needed.  Maybe only George Washington was similarly needed, except that George was needed at the beginning of America; whereas you were/are needed at the "end" of America.

Why did you abandon us?  Please don't tell us it was a gesture to the, God forbid, Clintons?  Frankly, who gives a rat’s ass about your fancy film work and stolen year 2000 election?  Bless you for all that and for other contributions, large and small, but THIS event (the year 2008 presidential election) is 10,000 times more important and necessary than all the rest of those things put together and you turned your back on us.  You turned your back on America.

Look what you've left us with.  The very real possibility of Bush clones like Hillary Clinton and John McCain.  Obama is a textbook lesser of the evils, but the sleazy Clinton's will almost certainly find some way to weasel him out of the running.  Everyone knows the Clintons and the DLC will do (and are doing) everything possible to steal the primaries, just like Bush did in the year 2000 presidential election, so you sure didn't leave us much!

Some folks will think this post is unfair and Godspeed to their views.  After all, you did fight the good fight in many ways during the last few years, but, you know, for many of us that doesn't mean squat.  

When someone you love is dying (like our beloved country is dying!) and there's someone around who could absolutely SAVE that person (or country), it's impossible not to not to feel heartbreak and rage when the would be "savior" opts to jet to the Bahamas.

So, enjoy your fun, fun, fun choice, Gore.  We will never forget you, but millions of us will never again respect you for abandoning America and the Earth to the filth incarnate, Bush neo-Nazis.
