After graduation, 32 students attempted suicide

I have to say that this video actually made me giggle, because having all of Al Gore’s doom-and-gloom compressed to less than 2 minutes, and then playing Pomp & Circumstance in the background, is more like a cartoon than anything else.

Then again I didn’t have to listen to the whole blather, and I wasn’t a student who has spent my life being indoctrinated by the Chicken Little crowd.  For those students, watching this pompous boor go on and on about the imminent end of the world must have been a most disheartening end to their educational experience:

You get the message:  Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

    Part of me is beginning to suspect that Al Gore has finally found his true calling in life: he is a “performance artist,” and his art is high and subtle comedy. John Cleese and Christopher Guest may rank among the wry, dry and sardonic titans in the field, but Al Gore has taken it to a new level entirely. As part of his portrayal of a buffoonish, opportunistic and transparently idiotic politician, he actually ran for and served out two years in the US House, eight years in the US Senate, and another eight years as Vice President of the United States, remaining perfectly in character the entire time; he never allowed himself to be “off stage.” So dedicated was he to his art that he would not break out of character even when reposing with his family, leading his wife, Tipper, to become greatly concerned for him, and thus to become a public crusader on issues of mental health. His most famous performance, however, was his dogged portrayal of a fanatical believer in, and apostle of, anthropogenic global warming, a role for which he achieved worldwide recognition and great wealth. His example of selfless dedication to his art remains as an inspiration and example to us all.

    I have it on good faith that the people leaping to their feet at the conclusion of Goracle’s speech were doing so out of joy that the whole tendentious, tedious, borefest was finally at an end.

    Only 32?
    We need more nucular power and we need it now!
    Al Gore could use some too. Somebody please plug him in.

    He’s a poet as well:

    You have to hand it to Al Gore: he has proven beyond any doubt Lincoln’s dictum that you can fool some of the people all the time, and earn lots of filthy lucre in the process.

    How Al Gore began this clip:
    “You;d be surprised if I didn’t make at least brief mention of the one problem that I think…”
    What he meant to say, if he’d been truthful:
    “Ah! Finally it is time for me to be able to talk about the only thing I ever want to talk about any more!  And you thought I was just going to be all optimistic about the future and tell you to go get rich! Oh ho ho ho, no no no!  Not me!  And you may hope that as I launch into my global warming tirade – I’m getting a tingle up my leg just thinking about it! – that I’ll keep it brief and to the point. Oh ho ho ho, no no no!  I’m going to go on and on about it, and I’m going to throw in everything else that’s wrong with this country, and the kitchen sink, too!  I may bore you into a somnolescent puddle of steaming mush, but trust me.  It’s for your own good.  It’s ALWAYS for your own good.  Not just for me to pat myself on the back for saving the world, even though most people think it doesn’t need saving by the likes of ol pompous, self-important me!”

    Mike, that was perfect.

    Who’s the joker who thought it would be funny to put Algore in a black robe with a white collar in front of a solid black back-drop.  He looked like nothing so much as a disembodied head.  I kept waiting for him to say “I am the great and powerful OZ!”

    That is _so_ good!
