Favorite Al Gore Quotes

A zebra does not change its spots.
Al Gore

I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.
Al Gore

I invented the internet.
Al Gore

I think George W. Bush has a warm, engaging personality. But, you know, the presidency is more than just a popularity contest.
Al Gore

Our democracy, our constitutional framework is really a kind of software for harnessing the creativity and political imagination for all of our people. The American democratic system was an early political version of Napster.
Al Gore

Verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things.
Al Gore

We're all capable of mistakes, but I do not care to enlighten you on the mistakes we may or may not have made.

Who are these people? (To a tour guide at Monticello after seeing busts of George Washington and Ben Franklin).

Well at least I'm first here!

Bee said...

I wanted to mark my territory really quick so I haven't read your post yet, doing that now!

Bee said...

After reading his quotes I can see why you love him so much!
The dude is a genius!!!!

GORE 2008!!


Bee said...

jean knee and Al Gore sitting in a tree!

Jean Knee said...

now Bee, Father Al is hot (what with his global warming and increased weight) just not in a chriss Angel HAWT kind of way

Bee said...

Yeah, Al can be his own planet, we'll call it Al-Uh-Gory!

BWAHAHAHA! I crack myself up!

Get it? From "allegory"...????

Bee said...

Is this thing on???

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I wonder if George Washington and Ben Franklin had big busts?

Thought For The Day:
What Would Al Gore Do?

I'm thinking he'd probably order TWO grandslam breakfasts down at Denny's and wash it down with a glass of bubbly lard juice.

Jean Knee said...

I'm thinking he should be fined for adding to green house gases, he eats a bean burrito every day at Taco Loco

I added the lock box quote myself, he didn't really say that. please don't sue me Father Al

Jean Knee said...

you know, now that I rack my brain, I don't think I've ever heard anything about Washington and Franklin's big busts. They must have that man boob thing going on though, ever notice how statues only show them from the neck up?? huh?

Melissa said...

All hail Father Al! I don't want him to be president... but maybe he could be the king?

Brian o Vretanos said...

The Swiss like him - maybe he should stand for election over there?

Then we'd never hear about him ever again (he even gets on the Greek news).

No Cool Story said...

I'm with Melissa. President is so over rated, maybe he could be the King. I bet he would love to be called "His Majesty". He is Goreific!
This post makes me smile Jean Knee.

Thanks for the props yo!

Tori :) said...

Woo hoo! LOVED this post!!!

Bee said...


You forgot to add what HAWT stood for.

H: Heckno
A: Alwaysno
W: Wouldratherpokemyeyeout
T: Thanksbutnothanks

Bee said...

And that's how I feel about that! :op

Anonymous said...

You SHOULD HAVE seen Glenn Beck last night! Although I'm starting to think that you and he had a discussion about Al before you did your post and he taped his show?? He did a comparison piece about Al Gore and another Peace Prize nominee, a 97-yr-old Catholic woman who rescued 2500 women from the holocaust. Need we say more?
Oh, Jeannie, I'm so pleased with your first stab at political satire:) Keep it coming, sister!!

Very funny JeanKnee! I love the quotes!

Brian o Vretanos said...

I just read an article from the New York Times about Al, how wonderful he is, and what a pity it is that he's not running for president. I'd forgotten that he was the one who got beaten by some guy named Chad...

Jean Knee said...

oh yeeah, Chad kicked his ass down there in Florida, baby!

He's still requesting a recount.

Jean Knee said...

I like whole King idea. He would look cute in one of those fuzzy crowns. Tipper, though, she's a bit butch to pull off the whole queen thing.....

Jean Knee said...

hey Heidi girl, can't believe you're out of the bloggin closet, yay! now, have you got your blog goin yet??

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

No, he really didn't say he didn't know who GW and BF were. Seriously?

How do the dumba**es keep getting awards?

Jean Knee said...


according to these guys he did.

amazing isn't it?

No Cool Story said...

I also watched Glenn Beck last night Heidi. That segment was awesome. I'm going to wait a few days for someone to post it to YouTube (i'm too lazy to do it).

No Cool Story said...

Did I say "lazy"? HA! I meant super vusy with my super busy life, creating inspiring


No Cool Story said...

That's "busy" in Zorro-speak.

Jean Knee said...

I read a transcript from his web site just now...

Jean Knee said...

nice Z

Bee said...

Why is it that your blog page is orange at home but black at work? Or do you change the color in the evening?

Jean Knee said...

I'm too lazy to change the color. maybe you're just going crazy

Bee said...

You know what? That sounds about right!

in cognito said...

Hello? I make fun of Father Al on my blog and get accused of being responsible for people dying in the war. You make fun of Father Al on your blog and you reel in 30-plus comments.

That's it. I'm movin' over here.

Jean Knee said...

incognito- I looked for your Father Al post but didn't see it.what's it called.

the only thing actually said by me was the lockbox joke, so really I'm just restating, well, stuff

Jean Knee said...

plus everyone knows I'm full of crap

in cognito said...

here it is. All I did was link to an editorial and a cartoon. OK, I guess the post before that I did make fun of him creating the internet. I even got hate mail!

Maybe I should move to Texas!

Jean Knee said...

father Al should be made fun of at every opportunity for this and many other buffoonery type things.

I am sort of glad he invented the internet though..hee he hee

at least he is a peaceful milqetoast sort, not like that fiend Arafat. remember the day you heard he was gettin the peace prize? I do. I think they decided that if they positively reinforced him for something it would make him do it more, never mind the fact that he is a
