Al Gore's speech yesterday, sponsored by the American Constitution Society for Law & Policy and the Liberty Coalition, seems to have touched a very raw nerve on the right.
The speech, delivered at the Daughters of the American Revolution Hall in Washington, DC, and ignored by the "liberal media" (where DO you get these crazy ideas, Howie?), was greeted with thunderous applause from both Democrats and Republicans (unlike Bush, Gore invites bi-partisan audiences) when he called for a special prosecutor to investigate the President's "repeated and persistent" breaking of the law.
The defenders of torture, however, take offense.
From the National Review Online, Byron York tells of Al Gore's Mad Messsage.
ABC News notes that the White House Accuses Gore of Hypocrisy.
The American Thinker (oh, puh-LEASE!!!) had the audacity to claim that Al Gore dishonors Dr. King's memory, as though the great Christian non-violent civil rights and peace activist would NOT have said the same thing as Al Gore.
NewsMax.com published--almost verbatim--the RNC's inaccuracy-plagued (how's that for a tortured euphemism?) press release under the pathetic title, GOP Hits Back at Al Gore on Wiretapping.
I've said it before, I'm saying it again: Re-elect Al Gore in 2008!!!
