When is wealth evil? When you’re a Republican

From Bloomberg on Al Gore, the $200 million dollar man, also known as the Gorafice and/or the crazed sex-poodle:

Albert Arnold Gore Jr., 65, is a lot of things to a lot of people. Among friends and fans, he’s the progressive Democrat who should have been president, visionary author and Internet prophet, the man who more than anyone drove climate change to the center of public consciousness.

Detractors see Gore as a limousine liberal, tiresome pedant and climate alarmist who lives a jet-setting, carbon-profligate lifestyle while preaching asceticism for everyone else.

His work and writing on global warming have earned him a share of a Nobel Prize as well as a South Park cartoon parody in which he tries to scare school kids to his beliefs with a fictitious global-warming surrogate monster known as ManBearPig.

The above block quote contains an error-in-fact. Gore is not a limousine liberal; he’s a Learjet liberal. There’s a hypocrisy order-of-magnitude difference between the two.

Wealth is only evil when one is a Republican. As a for example, just ask Mr. Teresa Heinz where he’s parking his $7 million yacht these days.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
