Al-pocrisy : Part 249

Al Gore is better than Howard Dean...he really is the gift that keeps on giving:

"Only a week after Live Earth, eco-warrior Al Gore didn't do much for his green credentials when he shocked fellow environmentalists by serving up an endangered fish at his daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner.

The former US vice president provided 75 guests with Chilean sea bass - one of the world's most threatened fish species.

Also known as Patagonian toothfish, the species is under huge pressure from illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing activities in the Southern Ocean, jeopardizing the sustainability of remaining stocks.

It is known as one of the world's most endangered species of fish. Evidently a fact not known by the Gores.

The gaffe will have been even more embarrassing for the Gores because they tried to make the wedding between Sarah Gore and businessman Bill Lee - who met at a function for An Inconvenient Truth - as green as possible." (source)

I was sad to hear of the new poll that found 57% of Americans want Gore to stay out of the '08 presidential race. But...we could have had so much fun!
