I just love that they went at him again on the whole "lockbox" thing.

Good man for doing it himself. I have a subscription to McSweeney's Quarterly and in one of my recent mailouts was a DVD of Amazing short films.

One was a short documentary on Al Gore by director Spike Jonez (Being John Malkovich, etc), that really illuminated Gore's personality and character, showing him with his family most of the time.

Too bad the media butchered him, he's a decent guy.

IMO, most of the people who run for president are decent guys. It's a hard, greuling job, and you've got to be very dedicated to something to put yourself through all of that. I don't have any problem believing that 99% of individuals who run for President do it out of a desire to make their country a better place.

The speech was really funny. Gore has done lots of things like this that show that he is actually one of the warmest and most human pols out there. It's interesting we live in an age where his public image will rise because he played a phony president in a TV satire that savaged the way his real opponent has run the country. And nobody will claim that what he did has demeaned or insulted the dignity of the office.

I could see him running again, this time with Steven Colbert (who knows every House Representative by now) as his Veep. I hope he chooses Meryl Streep to be the first lady. You know, I think they should take over Commander in Chief (move Geena to Sec'y of State) in September, now that West Wing is gone. Wow, I bet Rove didn't count on that.

I'm impressed that he sent himself up almost as much as Pres. Bush. (at least it seemed like it to me)

I saw it as an equal opportunity offender. Sure it mocked Bush by basically saying that Gore would have done everything exactly the opposite (or would have had the opposite effect). But by making it so over the top it also seemed to indicate that many of the complaints about Bush are silly. (no mention of Sept. 11 and Disney Afganistan is the hottest spring break location?)

Even as someone that happily voted against him, I enjoyed this. Kudos, Mr. Gore.
