He was a doofus as a campaigner, and his wife is a meddlesome bimbo, but Al Gore has become Righteous. Speaking on gay marriage to the Human Rights campaign, he said:
Any force that tries to make you feel shame for being who you are, and loving who you love, is a form of tyranny over your mind. And it must be rejected, resisted, and defeated.After all the cowardly waffling of just about every goddamned elected Democrat, this is fucking heroic. And this is not isolated. It's almost as he needed defeat to break him out of the wooden consultant's mode and speak his heart.
Please run, Al. As of right now, you've got my vote.
