Dear Al, Kiss My Ass.

“You talkin’ to me?”

Yeah, you, Mr. Gore.

Kiss my ass.

I’ve had it with you. You’re nothing but a cock-teaser.  Your shit is bogus, and you are dead to me now.

You just sent me your last “Dear Tom” letter.  I just hit the “unsubscribe” button.

Dear Tom,

The power of a single individual to create change has always inspired me. Earlier this year, my friend Bill McKibben decided he was going to establish a day of action to fight the climate crisis.

Out of his idea, “Step It Up 2007” was born, and on April 14th tens of thousands of people, including thousands of members of, joined together at 1,400 rallies to raise their voices and demand that Congress cut carbon 80% by 2050.

“Step It Up 2: Who’s A Leader” will take place this Saturday. You can find a rally in your area by visiting:


“Step It Up 2” is going to be an incredible event. Already, 59 Members of Congress and 7 Presidential candidates have signed up to attend rallies around the country.

Participating is so easy: just click the link above and find a Step It Up event in your area. With hundreds scheduled in all 50 states, there is probably a rally near your home.

After you RSVP, use Step It Up’s online tool to invite your member of Congress, both your Senators, and all of the presidential candidates. We need to convince as many of our elected leaders as possible to attend these events so they can witness first-hand the huge movement demanding action to solve the climate crisis.

Just the act of inviting your member of Congress will help demonstrate the incredible support for our cause.

Sign up to attend a Step It Up Rally by visiting:


People like Bill McKibben and events like Step It Up are helping us build the political will necessary to end the climate crisis. It is vital you participate in any way you can — November 3rd is going to be an incredible day.

Thank you,

Al Gore

Fuck you, Al.  You Academy Award-winning, Emmy Award-winning, Nobel Prize-winning fraud.

You and your peeps know god-damn well that many, many of us have been working, pleading with you, and contributing money to get you into the 2008 presidential race.

Your response: squadoosh.

Fuck you.  For all of your awards and your big “Al Gore Environmental Woodstock” party this past summer, what have you done?  You have passed up the greatest opportunity you will ever have.  And our country–me, my children and my grandchildren…on to coutless generations–will suffer because of you.  Because you won’t come down off of your jerk-off Mt. Olympus, roll up your sleeves and take back the presidency you won in 2000.

So, as I said, fuck you.

I don’t want to hear about how much more good you can do in your new “role,” as opposed to being the fucking President of the United-fucking-States of America.  That’s just bullshit.

I call bullshit on you, Al.  And guess what…here’s your ultimate legacy for not doing the right thing:

You will go down in history as the most famous American to turn away from the best opportunity he ever had to effect real change throughout the world–on war and peace, the environment, human rights and so many other issues that festered hideously thereafter and plagued the generations that came next.


As for me, I’m going with John Edwards.

    How can he be a cock-tease if he’s never pretended he’s running for president?  It’d be one thing if he’d kept changing his mind, but if memory serves he’s pretty consistently denied any interest in running.  Can’t really blame him for other people making assumptions.

    for the last few days there has been a little voice inside my head that says pretty much the same thing.

    I’ve seen the movie
    The concert was groovy
    everything is the same.
    You can talk the talk
    now walk the walk.
    maybe another trophy for your fireplace mantle…

  1. You and your peeps know god-damn well that many, many of us have been working, pleading with you, and contributing money to get you into the 2008 presidential race.

    Your response: squadoosh.

    Is that Shermanesque squadoosh, or just plain old “I have no plans” squadoosh?

  2. I’m really pissed at him. Seems he never had any fight in him whether the cause was critical or not. 2008 was his for the taking and he was uniquely positioned to right many of the wrongs perpetrated on us as well as himself. He walked away. I’m done with him.

  3. a nation of 300 million people, doomed, because of one man…

    What a horrible burden to have to bear…

    I’m sure Al is yawning right now and thinking, “Where was the outrage when I ‘lost’ to the Supreme Court?”

    Everyone expects Al to put his neck on the block again, and who, in the eight years since, has done so for him?

    You can all have sat around waiting for Godot, but who let the country go to shit?

    Was it Al?

    Or perhaps 300,000,000 others?

    Just askin’

    Flame away…

  4. I keep hearing “It’s time for the Iraqis to step up to the plate and take on their problems…”

    Why don’t you all do the fucking same?

    I’m going back to bed.

    because if he did decide to run for some strange reason, I’d still vote for him.  So I don’t want to be a hypocrite and shit on him ‘JUST’ yet!
    And to tell you the truth, I don’t think I will ever say shit about him, the man HAS done plenty of great work, he has my respect whether or not he runs for the most fucked up office the world has to offer or not!
    And, as a second thought, I think he’d make a really great vice-pres (again), he could stay out of the lime light and undo all of Cheney’s evil work.

    i’m not sure this is one for “fuck you” but even stronger language, just not the fuck you.

    yes, Gore has denied he would seek the nomination. but he has NOT made a compelling case why the country is better with him on the sidelines.

    i don’t see him working with a third party candidate or guy like Kucinich.

    I see him as being pretty fucking mainstream. and that’s what’s got me steamed.

    if he’s so much for saving the planet, then why not really step out? he has NOT.

    and that’s what has me pissed off. and maybe you too Faheyman. i expected more. he led me to believe he had more… that, in some way, he’d help us. even if not by running, but by backing someone outside the beltway and the influence. maybe starting a third party himself.

    he can’t mean what he says without stepping away from the mainstream. that is my opinion.

    instead, he’s got a bubble gum TV station where our voices can be heard. have you seen it and the format? more valium for the masses, imo.

    this isn’t time for christmas wrappings… we need hope but more nitty gritty shit than current tv like the world is the same as it was in August 2001.

    as i write this i’m getting more angry.

  5. I thought maybe he was holding back until Hillary got the voters nauseated with her power-mad neocon-lite in a corporate panstsuit act. But now I agree with you, Gore should be ignored. Don’t give him any money, don’t go to his freaking rallies, unsubscribe to all his web crap. Do something local in your community, like farming coop or green power workshop.
