What is Al Gore Talking About?
"What makes it so dangerous for our country is [Republicans'] willingness to do serious damage to our American democracy in order to satisfy their lust for one-party domination of all three branches of government. They seek nothing less than absolute power. ... This aggressive new strain of right-wing religious zealotry is actually a throwback to the intolerance that led to the creation of America in the first place."
What on earth is he talking about? Last I knew the Republicans have been winning elections, not conducting a Kristalnacht putsch. (The Democrats might try that strategy, it has over 220 years of history and tradition behind it!)
Really, though, what is he trying to say? Intolerance led to the creation of America? Whose intolerance? (Note to Dems: The Republican Party didn't exist yet, so it wasn't them.) The countries the first immigrants came from? Puritans? And is the creation of America a bad thing? (I assume Intolerance is a bad thing, does that mean a bad thing led to a good thing? Or are they both bad, Intolerance and America?
Can it be that 50+ million Americans really thought this man would make a good President?
And that's not even getting into the apparent content of whatever idea he's mangling on the way from his brain to his mouth.
