Now this is a switch from the norm… or maybe not. Bill Clinton is once again teaming up with Al Gore, which may come as a surprise but not a shock to Gore.
The illustrious former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, follows theÃ‚Â lights like a moth trailing a mobileÃ‚Â flood lamp, so it’s no surprise that he’s hot on the heels of the shine that’s currentlyÃ‚Â on Al Gore.
Normally Bill doesn’t have to go far, since the lights are often on him or theÃ‚Â chicksÃ‚Â under his desk, but this time it’s different. Clinton, speaking at a Florida Democrat fundraiser, essentially told the crowd that Republicans and otherÃ‚Â naysayersÃ‚Â of hisÃ‚Â highlyÃ‚Â honed meteorologicalÃ‚Â and climatological instinctsÃ‚Â are the reason there are moreÃ‚Â hurricanes nowadays:
“It is now generally recognized that while Al Gore and I were ridiculed, we were right about global warming… It’s a serious problem. It’s going to lead to more hurricanes.”
Forget about Clinton saying that global warming isÃ‚Â causing more hurricanes, the only form ofÃ‚Â unacceptable blowing in the Clinton vernacular.Ã‚Â That’s old news. What’s fun is how Bill is attaching himself to Gore’s cause now thatÃ‚Â the former veep has hitÃ‚Â semi-hot box office. Clinton was always great at taking somebody else’s idea and making it his own, but now he’s back on the global warming bandwagon, and it’s “Al Gore and I” just like old times.
“Global warming” is still Al Gore’s baby, but, thanks to the success of Gore’s movie, Clinton is busy buyingÃ‚Â that baby onesies and lollypops and checking out the minute details of adoption law.
Al Gore’s movie on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth,” was #11 at the box office over the weekend. All those cars going to the theater to seeÃ‚Â the filmÃ‚Â spewed enough bilge into the air to cause what is at this time a tropical storm that is headed for Florida. Do you really think it’s an accident that the storm is named “Alberto”?
