Al Gore retched up an absolutely disgraceful speech today,
looking like a raging lunatic as he addressed far left group
MoveOn.Org — who have proudly posted a transcript of his
nightmarish moral inversions.

I've seen a lot of pictures of our President, the supposed hate- and war-monger, and I have never, ever, seen him look anything near this hateful or disturbed.

You know how the Democrats say they feel so sick about Abu Graib, how they feel squeamish about being associated with America? Well, that's how I feel about this. I am ashamed of the Democrats; I can't believe I was one for thirty years.

I actually voted for Gore in 2000, the same man who now, in the middle of a war, accuses our president of
bringing "deep dishonor to our country,"

being "the most dishonest President since Richard Nixon,"

not "honoring" the Geneva Convention, the United Nations, international treaties, opinions of our allies, the role of Congress, the role of the courts, the military, our fallen dead. . .

seeking to "radically destroy" foreign policy consensus,

asserting a "unique and unilateral" right to "ignore international law,"

asserting that same right to take military action against any nation, "even where there was no imminent threat,"

frequently using the word "dominance,"

"striking a Faustian bargain" and giving up their soul,

failing to recognize the existence of souls in Iraqi prisoners,

following a policy that "has made war on America's checks and balances,"

abusing the truth,

abusing our trust,

making the threat of terrorism "infinitely worse,"

making us "less safe,"

creating "more anger and righteous indignation against us as Americans than any leader of our country in the 228 years of our existence as a nation -- because of his

[having an] attitude of contempt for any person, institution or nation who disagrees with him,"

exposing Americans to "a greater danger of attack by terrorists because of his

[having] arrogance and willfulness,

"bungling at stirring up hornets' nests that pose no threat,"

"insulting the religion and culture and tradition of people in other countries,"

"pursuing policies that have resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women and children"

doing so in our name,

being utterly incompetent,

making the world "a far more dangerous place,"

"dramatically" increasing the threat of terrorism against the United States,

incompetently rejecting advice from military professionals,

disgracing families of soldiers such that they have to hold bake sales to buy their loved ones body armor,

And that, my friends, is the first quarter of Gore's screed (actually, 22% - I counted the words).

I've been intending to vote for President Bush for some time now, but I think this "speech" has just pushed me over the edge . . . . I need to disassociate from this nightmare, and reinvent myself as a

Republican? Independent?

but Democrat.
