Not content to be the most disastrous self-sabotager in presidential election history, Al Gore wants to drop some science on John Frickin' Kerry. Frankly he probably needs it.
A hilarious couple of excerpts:
"The debates aren't a time for rhetorical tricks. It's a time for an honest contest of ideas. Mr. Bush's unwillingness to admit any mistakes may score him style points. But it makes hiring him for four more years too dangerous a risk. Stubbornness is not strength; and Mr. Kerry must show voters that there is a distinction between the two."
W gets style points? He can use rhetorical tricks? I thought he was an idiot. And here are some of the questions Gore would ask:
"Is America on the right course today, or are we off track? If we are headed in the wrong direction, what happened and who is responsible? How do we get back on the right path to a safer, more secure, more prosperous America?"
So that's what an honest contest of ideas looks like. Vague questions about large complex problems that involve much more than just the President of the United States, but which are presented as his failings, or successes, alone. Gotcha.
