Al Gore Presidential Mania Sweeping The Nation, Healing The Sick

No sooner did we report the unlikely scenario of Al Gore becoming the Democratic Presidential nominee due to a Clinton/Obama deadlock (or random lion attack), did every major news organization jump on the “What if?” bandwagon. We’d like to think we helped start the ball rolling on this rampant speculation, but honestly, we owe it all to Florida Congressman Rep. Tim Mahoney (D-FL) — who now is back-pedaling and saying he was “misquoted”. Mahoney explained “that while it’s possible for the former vice president to snag the nomination, the option is not being seriously considered.”

So it is possible? Damn it, Mahoney, stop teasing us!

So who’s jumping on this? Let’s see: MSNBC had a video segment last night, TIME is wondering if “Al Gore Is The Answer?“, and Green Daily even ran an amusing “6 Signs Al Gore Is Running For President“. Meanwhile, in the more than 300 votes received, Ecorazzi readers have decided that a Gore/Obama ticket would be best for the nation — with 80% of the vote. Perhaps a Gore/Clinton would carry too much irony.

In other Gore Nation news, it appears that our friends over at the Competitive Enterprise Institute have been found in copyright violation over their latest attack ad aimed at the former Veep. Apparently, seven seconds of footage shown in the hilarious television ad was taken from a documentary shot by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Tsk, tsk. The ad has since been pulled from Youtube.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
