The Anti-Idotarian Rotweiller gives a good overview on the latest idiocy from the Goracle (beware – the Emperor uses strong, strong language):
To begin to fix all the problems, Gore said, “the answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels.”
“And to that end, I aim to wave my magic Gorebecile Wand and, by spreading fairy dust all over the nation, come up with replacements for carbon-based fuels overnight.”
Gore called on the country to produce all of its electricity from renewable and carbon-free sources in 10 years, a goal he compared to President Kennedy’s challenge for the country to put a man on the moon in the 1960s.
Modest as always, we see. But wait, we always thought that it was the Gorebecile who put a man on the Moon. Or was the Gorebecile actually the first man on the Moon? Nevermind. We’re pretty sure that he took the initiative in creating the science of rocket propulsion.
Gore chastised those who have proposed opening new areas for oil drilling as a solution to U.S. energy problems.
“It is only a truly dysfunctional system that would buy into the perverse logic that the short-term answer to high gasoline prices is drilling for more oil 10 years from now,” Gore said.
Alas, if only the Gorebecile had flunked out of a business school instead of failing Bible 101 in seminary, he would understand enough about this whole supply and demand thing to know that he’s a blithering buttskate. Also, we find it interesting that drilling now with an eye to increasing supply within 7 years (or shorter. You really have to stay up to date on these things, Gorebecile) is “dysfunctional” and “perverse”, while throwing everything we have out the window while hoping and praying fervently that a suitable replacement will automagically turn up within 10 years ISN’T.
Practicing what they preach – here’s how the Great and Powerful Gore arrived at this speech – along with all his supporters who are following his every word too:
