Get the straitjacket: Former Vice President Al Gore has lost his mind.
"He betrayed this country!" Mr. Gore shouted into the microphone at a rally of Tennessee Democrats here in a stuffy hotel ballroom. "He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place."
This gets filed under: "If a Republican said it about a Democrat, it'd be hate speech."
Sanity and Gore are fast becoming strangers. Gore is obviously suffering from an acute case of the Bill Clinton disease -- wishing one was president when tragedy occurs, thus solidifying your "legacy."
It still eats Gore that his Florida voters weren't intelligent enough to punch the right hole, and the state Supreme Court was overruled as it tried to give Democrat partisans enough time to manufacture votes in a few counties.
The video of Gore's little speech is scary. Thank heavens that Gore was not elected -- I don't think he could have taken the pressure resulting from dealing with the 9/11 attacks.
