Al Gore likes to raise things

Like money! Why, what did you think I meant?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which apparently pays no attention to current events, just sent out a fundraising e-mail from Gore. Here’s a taste (emphasis Al’s):

Friend —

After eight years of the Bush-Cheney administration, America is now beset with major challenges: A massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, an economic downturn that has put good people out of work, and a crisis that I have dedicated my life to solving — global warming.

And yet, Republicans are asking for another turn at the wheel.

House Republicans are actually campaigning on the promise to bring back the same failed policies and put in place some of the very same leaders that created this mess in the first place. And they are deadly serious.

Bush also stole the election, Al! Are you gonna let him get away with that? Kick his ass!

Ahem. Sorry for the language. Picked it up from the White House. Anyway, Al wants you to give the Democrats some of the money they haven’t taken from you already. That way the evil Republicans won’t get to do bad stuff again, like they did before Obama came along to fix everything, which will happen any minute now.

Stop it. Stop laughing at him. Can you prove Bush and Cheney aren’t responsible for the sexual assault claim against him? You can’t, can you? Didn’t think so, wingnut.
