Wrong Way Al

Now Al "Pod Person" Gore is saying that Bush is going the wrong way, by worrying about an insignificant thing like war and international terrorism, while the real problems he should be focusing on are economic in nature.

I have wondered in these pages about why he is acting so, well, strangely lately. I had thought that this was a maneuver designed to garner for himself the attention of his party. But as he pursues more and more bizarre behavior, I wonder if he isn't a card or two short of a deck. Folded wrong and wrapped too loose. I now believe that Jonah Goldberg was right about Al. Al Gore is a Pod Person, and his controllers are unable to simulate human responses to earthly stimuli on a consistent basis.

Maybe I'm just not smart enough to understand the brilliance behind Gore's latest tactics. Maybe I'm overestimating the intelligence of democrat voters, and Gore understands them as I will never be able to. In any event, with Gore and Lautenberg, et al, trying to discuss Social Security lock boxes, drug program giveaways, and economic "stimulus" packages, rather than the War against us that is ongoing, and our response to it, either the Donks will trivialize themselves out of an electoral victory in these mid-terms, or they will brilliantly succeed in changing the subject, and take over both houses of Congress.

Either way, we won't have long to wait until election day.
