Paraphrased Quote Of The Day

Is by Frank J, paraphrased by me:

[Al Gore] got Cs in Yale in political science -- a type of science -- [yet he's] angry at the world [for] not submitting unquestioningly to his wisdom.
True and funny.

A type of science? I was endlessly derided by the physics majors in my dorm for majoring in economics. I imagine they would have believed that political science is an oxymoron. And they're probably right.

And, for what it's worth, the fact that someone with C's in political science could become a Senator and Vice President says more about our educational process than it does about our political candidates. School is not going to make your career for you, and it's not going to hold you back.

Algore's problem isn't his grades, or his major. He was the only son of an old powerful political hack, and some arm candy. He was the original Fortunate Son, thus his egomaniacal behavior, and confidence in his own rectitude and right to power.

He is a fat fool who has become a caricature of himself. That he has any following at all is a surprise to me.

George W. Bush is not perfect, but the thought that Gore might have become President of the United States if it were not for a few hanging chads gives me shivers.

It's not unusual to be dissed by anyone, dadadadadada.

Heh Shelly, Ohio State v USC on the 31st.

Al is not sane, its just that simple, and he really has not been sane for quite some time.

Well, I still root for USC basketball, except when they play UCLA. My undergrad school is UCLA and I was there during the Wooden years.

In football it's different, as I spent eight years on the Coliseum Commission, and UCLA was playing at the Rose Bowl, so I am a die hard USC Football guy.

So, I'll still be rooting for the Trojans to kick the Nutmeg's butts on the 31st, but will not be suicidal if OSU pulls out another lucky win.

On th eother hand, Columbus will shut down if their darlings don't make it to the last.

He got an A in Political, and an F in Science. That averaged out to a C in Political Science.

Did you ever see that "Kiss me, I'm Al Gore" web site? At the time, when he'd just given Tipper that huge, stagey smooch, it was really funny.

Reading Anni's description and Casca's first comment, it seemed the subject was the current President. Funny about glass houses and all that...

Hey Will,

Well, at least, you found one person at this site that takes you seriously. Too bad, he's an anti-semite. Nice company.

I just realized, if Annika stops blogging, and Al Gore gets his wish, we will have a global ice age. Only unicellular organisms such as ice algae, Will and Al Gore will survive.

As a physical chemist, I deeply resent political "scientists" being lumped in with us hard-core geeks. Political science is to science what metaphysics is to physics. ;-)

Good call on getting rid of those bigoted comments, Annika.

I thought the story was that Al Gore and actor Tommie Lee Jones were roommates during their undergrad years at HARVARD.

Yale has a lot to be ashamed of, but I don't think you can blame Yale for Al Gore.
