Run, Al, Run!!!

(Via Guardian Unlimited)

Al Gore has made his sharpest attack yet on the George Bush presidency, describing the current US administration as "a renegade band of rightwing extremists".

In an interview with the Guardian today, the former vice-president calls himself a "recovering politician", but launches into the political fray more explicitly than he has previously done during his high-profile campaigning on the threat of global warming.

Denying that his politics have shifted to the left since he lost the court battle for the 2000 election, Mr Gore says: "If you have a renegade band of rightwing extremists who get hold of power, the whole thing goes to the right."

But he claims he does not "expect to be a candidate" for president again, while refusing explicitly to rule out another run. Asked if any event could change his mind, he says: "Not that I can see."

So, the conductor of the End of Civilization Express and self-appointed leader of the Leftwing Junk Science Coalition (LWJSC, if you prefer acronyms) is calling the administration "a renegade band of rightwing extremists"?

Ouch! That's gonna leave a mark! [Heavy snark intended]

I wonder how much jet fuel Al burned traveling to the "Hay Festival" to promote "An Inconvenient Truth" and make these stunning observations? I think it's a safe bet he didn't walk on water or paddle a canoe to get over there.

He runs around preaching the end of civilization within 10 years and that it's all our fault, yet he's doing more than the average American to contribute to his so-called crisis.

Run, Al! I'm begging you! You can run as a renegade leftwing extremist on the hypocrisy platform.
