Absolute zero

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jan 15, 2004

Showing the political timing that made him what he is today, Al Gore is giving a speech on "global warming" today in New York-- where today's temperature is zero.

Gore explains that actually, global warming causes extreme cold. You might not understand that, but then you didn't invent the internet.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Maybe after his speech, he will go swimming at Coney Island?

    While not meaning any disrespect to a legend in his own mind, it does strike me as odd that hell is portrayed as fire and brimstone, yet Satan is caught flapping his wings in a block of ice. Again, merely an observation, with no possible implication or pejorative intent on my part.

    This morning, two funerals, frozen church, holy water frozen in the stoups, incredible difficulty administering Communion with frozen fingers. The Whole City of New York is laughing at the Algore today. Which is the only thing warming my heart just now.

    Perhaps he'll give a speech on abortion "rights" on his next birthday.
