Read the Words of Al Gore

and then mourn for what we lost when what was rightfully his was stolen from him. This speech, via Truthout, is about the decline of our public discourse in the age of televised propaganda. It's simply brilliant, filled with insights and brimming with the kind of knowledge the current occupant of the White House couldn't hope to muster up in a million years. Gore would have been a great president. That he was denied his chance is both a national tragedy and a crime.
