Al Gore performs a breathing exercise...

... when he realizes that Jon Stewart's use of the phrase "voracious over-eater" isn't going to turn into a reference to Gore's obesity:



(My edit, my interpretation of what's going on here.)

You get the impression the main requirement for a Lefty Senator is a massive ego attached to a miniscule mind.

If he grew a proper stache Gore could land a gig as Taft at Nats games.

Basta! said...

That's funny, I bet you're right.
Look at how his neck fat is bulging out over his collar.
What a booze-bloated pig.

Chip S. said...

It's a good theory, Althouse, but there's a simpler explanation--he gets winded from breathing.

Al Gore isn't obese.

He is sequestering carbon.

Manipura: [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manipura]The Solar Plexus Chakra[/url]

Manipura or manipuraka is symbolized by a downward pointing triangle with ten petals, along with the color yellow. The seed syllable is Ram, and the presiding deity is Braddha Rudra, with Lakini as the Shakti.
Manipura is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. Manipura is believed to correspond to Islets of Langerhans, which are groups of cells in the pancreas, as well as the outer adrenal glands and the adrenal cortex. These play a valuable role in digestion, the conversion of food matter into energy for the body. The colour that corresponds to Manipura is yellow. Key issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.

"Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth." Including the growth of Al Gore's bank account after selling his tv network to Aljazeera, headquartered in Doha, Qatar - one of the largest producers of greenhouse-emitting fossil fuels on the planet.

I don't think I've said this is more than a year.

Thread winner.

In the absence of a message here, may I suggest a massage?

Good for what Als ya. ;)

What's Tipper doing these days?

Julius Reincarnate said...

As he's breathing out, he's thinking...

That's okay. At least he didn't say "sex-crazed poodle".

kentuckyliz said...

Thank you, Scott.

William said...

He really has put on a lot of weight, and the weight gain has passed unnoticed by those who mock Christie.

whoresoftheinternet said...

EH, he's not that chubby, especially for his age. But he's rather gaining the necessary heft that all bent-on-conquering-the-world Bond villains get. Blofeld with hair.

Tipper's getting raped by Bill Clinton in a back room. And loving the fuck out of it.

And feminists will never say anything about it.

Enjoy the decline, hypocrites!

William said...

Is it hypocritical to criticize Gore for being hypocritical while doing so in a hypocritical way? Perhaps I'm overthinking this, but you know any comment or observation about Christie will eventually lead back to his weight.

Jay Vogt said...

He's one walking stick away from an audition for the role of Big Daddy

It would be very helpful if every person who was as despicable as AlGore was equally disgusting looking. Somewhere there's a painting of AlGore that keeps getting better and better looking.

Don't insult Taft like that. Taft had principles, and humility.

Chip S. said...

All that may be true, but it's also true that the current Taft is a lightweight compared to Gore.

Dante said...

Good thing they didn't ask him any serious questions. Like "You said, 'The Seas will Rise' 20 feet", and you bought beachfront property in San Francisco and Florida. Why did you do that?

Or, "You said there would be 50M climate refugees by 2010, where are they?"

Or, "You said, there will be Plague and Pestilence, and famine will rule the world," Where is it.

Naturally, the $100M or so Gore has made from these prognostications and many others, is acceptable. We all think it is OK to rob money from people when the intent is Democrat Party Certified (tm).

Al Gore isn't obese, he just has a bloated carbon footprint.

Perhaps the greatest pump and dump stock scam artist of all time.

Of all time.

But don't get confused, Romney is the evil capitalist.

Amartel said...

How is this guy a lefty hero? (Or anyone's hero?)

He's a bloated rich white guy with an over-inflated ego, a sex poodle, inherited oil money, a music-censoring wife, and irresponsible spoiled children. He's openly and obviously hypocritical about EVERYTHING, especially his big money-making issue global warming. He's a immoral plutocrat who says one thing and does another . . . .

Oh, wait. That's what you nitwits like. Being led about by a king.

That's why he's going on these shows and allowing his lessers to bat him about a little, for show, for pretend penance so the nitwits will forgive. (Because Dave and Jon and Matt gave him a hard time so I guess I'll let him off the hook.)
Young Jon almost crossed the line there, though. No Holiday Card for him this year!
