I haven’t read the thing, itself, but I have now read several accounts of Al Gore’s new book, Assault on Reason, wherein he wags fingers at people who watch TV (unless, of course, they’re watching him pimp his book) and the media (particularly those who don’t stick to reporting only his side, of the “manmade” global warming story) and - by all accounts - he trashes the Bush 43 administration from start to finish, enumerating all of Bush’s “lies” and mistakes.You really need to do yourself a favor and read her whole post. She goes through Ms. Behar's incoherent screed, point by point, and shatters all the myths and pipe dreams of all the sad little liberals.
I’ve seen similar lists throughout the web - the collective is circulating it in order to really drill home to everyone who may not yet be fully convinced that George W.

an insult to our intelligence. I haven't read it, I'm not going to. I don't need some tree-hugging dirt-worshipper to tell me about some myth he has about "man-made global warming", when he himself spends over $1300 A MONTH on his light bill (But he buys carbon offsets!! That makes him wonderful!! Yeah, whatever. See definition of "carbon offsets" at the right). Well, apparently Joy "Hey, it's me!! the loudmouthed redhead from 'The View'" Behar has jumped, feet-first, into the swirling cesspool that is the mind of Al "ManBearPig" Gore.
