Something is fishy

ganked from El Borak:

AlGore's hypocrisy is showing again, and earning him the ire of the Humane Society International.
ONLY one week after Live Earth, Al Gore's green credentials slipped while hosting his daughter's wedding in Beverly Hills.

Gore and his guests at the weekend ceremony dined on Chilean sea bass - arguably one of the world's most threatened fish species.

Also known as Patagonian toothfish, the species is under pressure from illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing activities in the Southern Ocean, jeopardising the sustainability of remaining stocks.
Just another in a line of embarrassments ignored by Gore apologists.

I want to be clear, I don't necessarily disagree with Gore's message. Just the hypocrisy of the messenger.

How dare he dine on a threatened fish species. And I thought I was bad for insisting that we serve Spotted Owl at our wedding banquet.

  1. Frankly, I find this to be a great development, inasmuch as I want to get rich on a franchise of "Club Your Own Baby Seal" restaurants.

  3. OMG! Gore killed a couple dozen fish for his family. How many soldiers has Bush killed for his? At least Gore dined on the flesh of his victims. Bush hasn't even had the heads of his 3600+ victims stuffed and put on the wall.

  4. Thanks for the post. Now I don't feel so bad about running the dishwasher all day long because I like the noise. :)

  5. Dan, thanks for being the local representative of the aforementioned Gore apologists. And for demonstrating ignoratio elenchi.

  7. Speaking of apologies, it appears you owe one to the Gore family, in that the fish were responsibly harvested. As the second dumbest president in history said, "facts are stupid things."

  8. D'oh! That's the last time I trust anything Humane Society International says!

  9. You should have known better than to trust a hippy liberal group, even when it's attacking one of their own! Next thing you know, you're going to start complaining about Michael Vick!

  10. Oh c'mon now Dan. We all know Vick is as guilty as a Duke lacrosse player.


Your turn to riff...
