The immediate past Vice President of the United States has been very much in the news this weekend, supporting repeal of Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, praising the President’s “decision to send more troops” to Afghanistan, tearing into his successor. That good man has been keeping a high profile of late. At the same time, the woman who followed him as his party’s choice for the second highest office in the land has also drawn much media attention.
So, once did Mr. Cheney’s predecessor, Al Gore. That Democrat seemed eager to hog the limelight, offering apocalyptic warmings, er, warNings about the threat of global warming. Now, he seems to have vanished. Maybe he’s hibernating. Must be that cold winter back east.
Wonder if his disappearance has anything to do with this headline: World may not be warming, say scientists.
