'Current' Launched by Al Snore

Will this be the cure for the thousands of Americans suffering from insomnia?

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore, co-founder of a new television channel launching next month, said he's shunning politics - and so is his media venture.

"I consider myself a recovering politician. I'm on step nine," Gore told a meeting Monday of the Television Critics Association.

The 2004 Democratic candidate for president was asked if he was concerned the 24-hour news and information channel, called Current, would be perceived as having a political slant. It's scheduled to launch Aug. 1.

"I think the reality of the network will speak for itself. It's not intended to be partisan in any way," said Gore, Current's co-founder (with businessman Joel Hyatt) and chairman of the board.

Aimed at an 18-34-year-old audience, Current has loftier goals in mind than party politics: Gore said it will engage young people in the "dialogue of democracy" by providing stories that interest them, and will involve them in the channel's content.

Using Web parlance, Gore said he wants Current to be the channel of choice for young adults.

"We want to be the television home page for the Internet generation," he said.
Isn't that clever? *Yawn*

Who in their right mind can take this guy seriously? Especially if you watched the 2000 Presidential Elections closely.

Is there a less photogenic guy in politics? I always thought that was a prerequisite to be a politician, to look decent on TV but it seems as if Algore looks as if he's sweating off lastnight's Mexican food at all times.

Even his partners seem to be a bit scared of the looney-toon...

I hope that chick's face recovers from what appears to be another launching of one of Gore's smelly productions, most likely a result of excess green chili.

Either that or he's rehearsing for his Golden Globe winning performance:
"He betrayed this country! He played on our fears! .... uhhh, how was I guys?"

You still suck Al.

By all means, add your own picture caption in the comments... this picture is classic.

Got another one,

Gore: Someone get the lockbox, this is gonna be a SBV!

(yes, that stands for: Silent But Violent)

Gore: "So, then I said, "I'm not sharing a cab with soem Jap broad and her Hindu sidekick!"

Woman and Man: "What an a-hole."

Nice shootin Tex...
