The sad thing about this story is how predictable it turned out to be.
After publishing yesterday’s story of Al Gore’s unfortunate separation from his wife Tipper after 40 years of marriage, I immediately wondered how the extreme right would gleefully mock such news.
Leave it to Limbaugh to comment on the situation by calling Gore a hypocrite because “divorces contribute to global warming”. From his radio show:
“The environmentalist wackos have put this notion up there that divorce contributes to global warming,” Limbaugh said. “And now, here is Mr. Global Warming, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, now contributing to his own crisis.”
Rush was rubbing salt in Gore’s wounds by calling upon a 2007 study published by New Scientist; which revealed that when a household splits, the two parties consume more energy and water apart than together. Hence, Gore is a hypocrite.
Yup. Limbaugh’s legend as a giant ass clown continues to grow. Like I said, “predictable”.
