Truth Like A Bell

Sometimes the truth is so precious that she must be protected by a bodyguard of lies. Sometimes the truth stands in stark contrast to the shadowplay around her, and her voice rings like a bell.

The bellringer who caught my attention recently was, oddly enough, our shadow President, Al Gore. His recent speech pretty much spells out the current state of the union without rancor, while combining all the relevant facts with insight into the way the US system works (or fails). It's packed with public information that is lacking in most of our public discourse and reporting.

Give it a read at Information Clearinghouse.

Our true president, Gore, just made me so happy-sad during that speech (we have free cable for a while, with C-Span). You're right, he gave us our first real state of the union address since he was elected.

Today on C-Span I saw Howard Dean speak in Iowa, where he agreed with the audience member who said our "elected" president would have done things differently. Dean says he believes Gore would have been a better president in every way.

Sigh.

Waaah! I want Gore! I want back into the One True Timestream, where we elected a good (also good looking, and eloquent) man, and he's president.
