A question for Democrats: In 2000, you nominated, funded and voted for Albert Gore, Jr., the vice president and a former Senator.
The man is demonstrably insane.
What did you know about Gore's mental health and when did you know it? What kind of testing did he undergo before he was nominated by a major party to the highest office in the land?
I was especially amused by this line in Gore's foaming-at-the-mouth rant:
How long would it take James Madison to dispose of our current President's recent claim, in Department of Justice legal opinions, that he is no longer subject to the rule of law so long as he is acting in his role as Commander in Chief.
Some Justice Department legal opinion (in response to what court? -- none) isn't the same as actually attempting to claim that they're above the law in front of a court. Maybe Hillary Clinton, who's been known to talk to Eleanor Roosevelt, could query James Madison on his views. But it's really interesting to note that, even if it's accurate characterization (which I doubt), the first president to pull such a stunt was one William Jefferson Clinton who attempted to claim that he could not be sued civilly while he was commander-in-chief.
I'd rip the Gore's latest ravings to shreds, but John Cole has already done an admirable job here.
