Run, Al, Run...Er, Never Mind

I laughed OUT LOUD when I read the following:

Iowans who support former Vice President Al Gore have been forced to cancel a concert in his honor.

The $20 per ticket "Run, Al, Run" event, which I wrote about last month and was scheduled for Sunday in Des Moines, was called off because organizers feared they wouldn't sell enough tickets.

Peter Ryder of Cedar Rapids told me there are two reasons the rally and concert won't go on as planned, despite folk singer Paul Kaplan writing an original song in Gore's honor.

The idea was to "send a message to Al Gore there is a tremendous surge of feeling about you running, but after he won the Nobel Peace Prize, he really got that message pretty loud and clear," Ryder said.

Given the importance of Iowa for the declared Democratic candidates, "we felt it would be difficult to sell the number of tickets to make the whole thing financially viable," Ryder added.

The rest of the Washington Times piece is here.

They didn't think they'd sell enough tickets, even though they only cost $20 each? That's not exactly breaking the bank. And a special song written for the occasion by folk singer Paul Kaplan...well, what crunchy granola type could resist such an opportunity?

You know, there's a reason why folk music isn't a big moneymaker. It looks like Paul can't even afford a haircut or moustache trim. And now his big shot at stardom won't even happen. Sigh...it's a cruel world.

Here's the song in question, if you can stomach it. You might want to have a trashcan or paper bag handy for the retching that might result. Don't say I didn't warn you! (The graphics of George W. Bush followed by the Twin Towers before 9/11 were especially effective...that is, if you like false innuendo and scaremongering.)

As for the Nobel Peace Prize being a "loud and clear" message for Gore to run, I'd like to remind this Peter Ryder (who couldn't manage to sell enough $20 tickets for this non-event) that the Nobel Peace Prize committee is a bunch of Norweigians in Norway. Despite the fervent wishes of many lefties, the rest of the world is not allowed to have a say in American elections.

Maybe if we get those illegal aliens their licenses, that dream can finally come true...

There is a phenomena that is associated with the Clintonista's (including Gore) such that a large segment of the population appears to be mesmerized by the Clinton era (Camelot) and all its "hero's".....

"They came from far far away to save the Earth but were misunderstood"......wahhhhhh

This form of hynosis or maybe a mental illness still seems to aflict a large segment of the American population...they cling to their illusions about Bill, Hillary and Big Al...

This refusal to see realty, accept facts is tenacious and these Clintonoids will resort to extreme measures to not face ANY facts whatsoever..

This Clinton mass hysteria phenonmena has puzzled me for years....then a light bulb came on....these slavish followers are hippy boomers from the 60's...they had way too much acid and basically their minds and critical thinking skills are a smoking hole in their brain cavities...

hopefully America can out last them, their misguided perception of reality and large numbers are extremely dangerous to Democracy

I think he should run. With him at the helm of the DNC, the GOP will have a field day!
