The big news in VPville is that police in Portland have re-opened the Al Gore sex case.
This is despite assurances and Latin footnotes from Mr. Gore and his lawyers, back in 2007, that the settled scientific consensus clearly states, as all enlightened people know, that the accusations of "that woman" massage therapist Molly Hagerty are "completely false" -- just as everyone knows today that Mr. Gore's claims about global warming are completely true.
Meanwhile, one wonders: How long will it be, should the facts of the case decide against Mr. Gore and the settled science regarding the "sex poodle's" possible pildipherings, before apologists from the Daily Kos, ACLU, and the Obama White House discover that behind it all stands the all-powerful, ever-present, and always-responsible figure of George Bush?
The needed scapegoat recipe is well established: If Bush hadn't messed up the world's air conditioning system, Al Gore would not have had to sacrifice his life and his wife to save the planet. And that cute little girl in the hotel would never have caught his eye.
The lesson for leftist organizers is clear: Police may be looking at Gore, but Bush should be on trial.
