Al Gore's Blindness is Illuminating

The AP released the text of a recent speech by Mr. Gore. How can someone who is presumably so bright be so stupid? Its very interesting to simply remove all of the rhetoric and then see whats left. But I want to look at just one excerpt here as an example of how lost liberals are at this point in time. From the speech:

"And here is my point: it is the destruction of that marketplace of ideas that accounts for the "strangeness" that now continually haunts our efforts to reason together about the choices we must make as a nation."

This about sums it up. He can not see past the liberal realm, where there is very little reasoning, and even fewer new ideas. He is blind to the fact that the citizens of this country are making choices as a nation, just not his choices. Furthermore, the "strangeness" that now haunts his efforts, is the fact that he is not in power anymore. It certainly must be strange to not get away with controlling the debate. And what is this "reason together" bs? You don't want to reason together Al, you just want everyone else to agree with you. How much reasoning have you been doing lately Al? Its only reasonable to a liberal if the outcome is to make the world more liberal. Otherwise its unreasonable, and introduces "strangeness" that haunts liberal efforts. Totally blind.

And what does Mr. Gore mean by the destruction of the marketplace of ideas? Does he mean the demise of liberal mainstream journalism? The demise of force fed bias on the nightly news? It makes you wonder if the "inventor of the Internet" has ever gone online. He's lying to his audience. He's playing on their fears. Totally blind.
