Al Gore has gone completely off the deep end:

Raising his voice to a yell in a speech at New York University, Gore said: ”How dare they subject us to such dishonor and disgrace! How dare they drag the good name of the United States of America through the mud of Saddam Hussein’s torture prison!”

”Donald Rumsfeld ought to resign immediately!” Gore bellowed. ”Our nation is at risk every single day Rumsfeld remains as secretary of defense. We need someone with good judgment and common sense.”

Rice ”ought to resign immediately. She has badly mishandled the coordination of national security policy. This is a disaster for our country,” he said.

Is anybody actually listening to this guy? Every time I hear about him these days, he seems to be yelling into a vacuum. That’s just as well, since he never says anything worth listening to. The fact that he’s using that disaster movie “The Day After Tomorrow” as a springboard to talk about the dangers of global warming is causing even some of his fans to roll their eyes.

Jim Dyke of the Republican National Committee sounds a little bemused that he even has to comment on this:

”Al Gore’s attacks on the president today demonstrate that he either does not understand the threat of global terror or he has amnesia[.]”

Dyke very manfully refrains from adding, “or he’s completely fucking insane and makes John Kerry look like a moderate.”

Gore’s rabid environmentalism is not news — he’s been like this for years but managed to somehow keep it mostly off the radar of the general public. His vitriol for the Bush Administration, however, can’t help but strike me as a very personal hatred that is probably rooted in his failed bid for the presidency in the 2000 election.

Pathetic. This guy needs to get a calmer hobby before he pops something.

UPDATE: Junkyard Blog has created a wonderful webad using material from Gore’s speech. 2.3 MB .avi – dialup beware. Outstanding work, gentlemen. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Actually I managed to see some Fox News and teh weather guy said an interesting thing. That seemingly Gore was roaring about what he did, then sort of lowered his voice and looked down when speaking about George Tenet who happened to be a personal friend of his… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “AND BUSH SHOULD RESIGN AND RUMSFELD AND WOLFOWTIZ… And George… Tennet…” ๐Ÿ˜€
