Al Gore - Not A Robit No More

Al Gore. We've know you as:
Senator
Vice President
and
Protector of the Space
Time Continuum
(it's in the Constitution!)

But now you've out done yourself. You're fighting the invading army of GLOBAL WARMING!!!

In An Inconvenient Truth, Gore succinctly and meticulously lays out the ever growing threat of global warming. And he does this with a new found southern charm and an impassioned confidence.

Yes... I said charm, believe it or not.

His hard-nosed science is interspersed with self-deprecating humor, poking fun at the insular mindedness of the old guards and his own naïveté. All this with a hint of "Well, shucks. I'm from Teeeennn-es-eee" in his voice.

His awareness of the science is far deeper than the average person's. (Who'd have guess that the earth is a nonlinear dynamic system? not I!) I'm grateful he's been able to do his homework. But for Zombie Jesus' sake, will you post your slides on the website! I could easily take contention with his presentation of data and his penchant for skimming over the complex messages of scientific work. But that is easily forgivable is the greater light of his noble pursuit.

And yes... it is noble. For once we may have a candidate that feels like he has to be running for president to change the way the world works and not to prove himself to daddy. Its certainly what the Dems have been dying for and something, I feel, America needs. He's embraced his own voice in this movie. I hope he doesn't suffer a bout of laryngitis.

This movie is a way for him to test the waters without getting too wet. And he has, as all heroes must, put the mission before himself; so even if he dies trying to pass the torch, he will die with no regrets. But with that said, I think everyone should see this movie. We witness the transformation of a man as he unfolds his passion for serving humanity.

I only have two hopes for him. First, whoever kept him on message for this film is one of his trusted confidants through the campaign trail. As long as he doesn't have too many voices attempting to drown out his impassioned message, he stands the chance of making a lasting impact on the political, economic and technological world (again).

Secondly, I hope he develops some more charisma. Even though he is charming, I felt his charm was scripted. If he develops a genuine willingness to play with his audience and dissenters (dissenters... no! There can be any of those! Can there? Maybe.) he'll charm the methophorical pants off America. (And I hope we're wearing a lacy thong!) When his sense of charm finally spills over into his identity, he'll finally be charismatic. Maybe a year and a half is time enough to refine that quality.

But if we don't elect him (and not saying he's earned my vote, just my ear) we can always romanticize over what could have been... or maybe elect his head in 3008!

(Psssttt... I hope this was a joy for all Futurama fans. I wish I had something with the news monster... AWWWW--- EFF IT! Here he is!)
