OH, THE HUMANITY

Let the hand-wringing begin. Though Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have announced a separation rather than a divorce after four decades of marriage, much of the press already has ramped up the tragedy. Hey, maybe they'll get back together. Or, maybe not. Still, many journalists already are in mourning over the loss of the "storybook couple," with a few daring ancillary stories drawing attention to Mr. Gore's impending single status and the couple's division of property.

Which brings us to business writer and Anxiety Institute founder Alan Caruba, who believes the "separation" is a ruse to protect those assets should there be a federal investigation of certain environmentally minded activities. Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, already has called for the Justice Department to have a look-see.

"Al Gores big, big problem these days is something dubbed 'Climategate,' the revelation that the science of global warming is entirely fabricated and utterly false," Mr. Caruba says, noting that Mr. Gore established the $1 billion Generation Investment Management LLP to invest in assorted green technologies, assisted by Goldman Sachs veteran David Blood.

"There was, Mr. Gore told everyone, a climate crisis, and in the process, he grew rich, hailed [as] the first 'carbon billionaire' for his various investments," Mr. Caruba continues. "As bad as the bursting of the housing bubble has been, the next bubble will be a very green one. And, at the heart of it will be the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Al Gore, and his partner in crime, the U.N. climate change program.

"If Al Gore and Tipper are legally separated, it will likely provide a measure of protection for the millions he has. This, I suggest, is probably the real reason for the separation. It is as coldly calculated as his global-warming lies. Even their forty-year marriage must be sacrificed," Mr. Caruba says.

I'm still holding out hope for a juicy sex scandal on Tipper's part-like she had an affair with some hot, beefcake 20-something guy.

Although a 60-something ex-president is probably more likely.

I would not doubt this one bit. :mad:

After 40 years of marriage, it does make you wonder why all of a sudden
out of the blue they decide to call it quits when they are all set financially
and entering their golden years.

Make sure when you quote, that you attribute correctly. I posted the article but I didn't make that statement. Sloppy quoting makes it look as though I did. ;)

That''s OK, wil. We've been tolerating your continuing refusal to see reality for a long time now, we'll continue to tolerate it in the man-made glow-ball warming/climate change arena, also.

Which stands in good stead against your literally bullshit claim of being "open minded". :rolleyes:
