Gore's fishy dish

United States
July 19, 2007 6:35am CST
I would imagine that Mr. Gore had a bad attack of gas after this faux pas. First it was his very large home's electric bill being enormous and now this. I really think this is an example of people who believe in "do as I say not what I do" So what do you think? Green campaigner Al Gore is under fire after an endangered fish was served at his daughter's wedding. Just a week after launching the Live Earth concerts, the former US Vice President let his green credentials slip when Chilean sea bass was given to guests at the reception in Beverly Hills, California. The sea bass is one of the world's most over-fished species, reports the Daily Mirror. Gore, who also made an Oscar-winning climate change documentary, has not commented on the row. http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2423312.html?menu=news.quirkies

I have seen discussions over the last six months about some other fishy things about Mr. Green Gore. His house is a horrible energy hog and not environmentally friendly. President Bush, however has a house on his ranch designed to be energy efficient and use less resources. Let's see, would we rather have someone who talks environmental awareness, or who practices it? I know who I would put my faith in as regards the environment. I do not trust Gore on very much at all, and he always seems to be saying "Look at me, I am so good".

Interesting response gerty. Mr Green Gore (I love the name) is not doing so well in the publicity department

Here is my question, what is a company doing to placing an endangered fish on the menu? What is going to be done with the caterer over this? LOL, what else do they serve, Bar B-Q Eagle? That is rather a swift kick to Mr.Gore though, how embarrassing.

They could place it on the menu but the menu has to be approved by the person who is hiring them.

Isn't that just like a politician to squak one message and yet live in another message? Seems he is just full of environmental blunders. His extravagant lifestyle doesn't match what he is tauting and he should be questioned about it in a very straightforward manner on national TV. I would love to see how he would skip around the issue and make excuses.

What a dork! He just can't help but step on his johnson, can he? It's too bad, he might be able to do something useful with his fame, but he keeps burying his own credibility. Oh, well, he still would have made a better President that Dubya, at least when Gore steps on his johnson, the collateral damage is limited! (gardengrrl GRINS as the steam begins to pour out of the reader's ears...!)

Perhaps Gore's "johnson" doesn't pack the power that Dubya's does ... hence the reason for the collateral damage. :)

*gardengrrl rolls on floor, laughing so hard she can't think of a way to describe the image in her head so it conforms to the guidelines*

It seems to me that any politian will say anything he/she thinks the American public wants to hear so that they can get into office, make huge amounts of money and retire with a pension knowing that everything they said and did was a lie. While the rest of us who truly care and stand on issues that are important to us are getting the short end of the stick.

To be honest with you, it is something I would fully expect a person like Al Gore to do. He has very little concept of reality but has the politicians accuity on how to use people, places and things to garner favor and publicity.

What I don't get is where the $350. per ticket went for that concert if none of the musicians got any of it. I think the concert did more damage than good considering the omissions from all the cars that went to it and all the electricity and resources they used to put the show on. Maybe after this fish thing he will disappear again.

Sorta like John Edwards $400 haircut, isn't it? Funny how these things come back to haunt them. At least they seem to have their hearts in the right place even if they don't always follow through. Frankly, in this day and age, I think it would be hard not to goof up. Especially with the press scrutinizing every move. I can live with the $400 haircut and the slaughtered fish. I just can't take the war in Iraq and the refusal to acknowledge the threats to the environment but that's why I'm a Democrat instead of a Republican.
