Somebody needs to bitch slap Al Gore. How can someone so hell bent on saving the planet deny the catastrophe right in his own backyard? Before we can save the world, we need to save our country. It's a simple matter of prioritizing. Much like the effects of global warming so prevalent on his plate, America is suffering for the sins of the father and needs his help. No more Monday morning quarterbacking. No more appearances on Saturday Night Live, despite their comedic value. The White House has been gang-banged by a revolving door of incompetents since you packed up your pet rock paper weight and vamoosed, Mr. Former Next President.
The current crop of delegates with their eye on the prize are analogously brimming with delusions of grandeur if they think they have what it takes to bring us back from Dubya's debacle. Sadly, it really doesn't matter which of these nimrods lead us out of the frying pan and into the fire. We may as well just draw straws in lieu of voting (the republican's knack of bamboozling us repeatedly, notwithstanding). Most informed Americans are aware of the fleecing of the last two elections, the manufacture of an illegal war, and the outright contempt to give anyone who didn't already hate us a laundry list of reasons to do so.
Now that the elephant is finally primed to leave the building, the democrats' most promising frontrunners, two of which didn't even have the right to vote during the lifespan of some of today's registered voters, are poised to reclaim the oval office. But, to what avail? It is more plausible that the republicans will lose the election as opposed to the democrats actually winning it. So, where does that leave us?
Help me Obi Wan, you're our only hope. The bottom line... Our country needs you, Mr. Gore. You've raised awareness to your cause and made it our cause. You won the Oscar. You won the eye of a nation and achieved bipartisan status in the process. For chrissakes, you already won the election the first time around. Do us all a solid and take back what was rightfully yours in the first place! Ease Hillary into the captain's chair and offer her the co-pilot's seat. Why even gamble with the closed minded mentality of voters from yesteryear who potentially won't see beyond the flesh? It would truly suck if the focal point of the next election was clouded by the "are we ready" mind-set. We need to focus on cleaning up this mess, not the sex, race or creed of our leaders. Let's wage another Gore-Clinton victory! It was a pretty good one-two punch the first time around. A guy can dream, can't he?
