Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”
Al Gore is at it again.
This time, after promoting his forthcoming eco-freako home movie “An Inconvenient Truth” (why does every liberal think they are qualified to be a movie producer these days?) to a group of conservatives, Al claims he was bum rushed by free market types who had suddenly seen the light and joined his fringe crusade. Only, according to the Washington Post:
While energetically flacking his new documentary at a convention of theater owners in Vegas Monday, Gore told a story about the warm reception he got at a Grover Norquist breakfast gathering here in January. In Variety’s account of the speech, Gore said that D.C. conservatives “stood up afterward and said, ‘You’re absolutely right.’ “
How many conservatives? Three people at the convention tell us Gore left the distinct impression he received multiple kudos, “many” in Variety’s telling. That got a chuckle from the breakfast club, whose members recall a polite response but only one attendee approaching Gore with praise. Gore’s people deny any hyperbole, saying he never claimed more than one enviro-conversion at the meal and may have been misquoted. His documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” hits theaters in May.
When it comes to Al Gore and his obsession with global warming, I cannot help but think of this pro wrestling fan screaming, “It’s still real to me, dammit!”
