The Chickengreen Dilemma

In the afterglow of the adoration heaped upon Al Gore during the 79th annual Academy Awards ceremony this past Sunday has come a new light shedding an inconvenient truth about the "Goracle's" energy consumption habits.

The Drudge report posted a story released by The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan research organization about the power consumption of one of the former Veep's domiciles. The spacious home located in the tony Belle Meade district of Nashville consumes more electricity in one month than the average American household consumes in one year!

Talk about having tofu on your face!

This kind of news would make you drop your granola bars and trip over your Berkenstocks!

I wonder if the Academy will want their Oscar back for an “Inconvenient Truth”?

It seems that the prophet of global warming devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours of power at his estate in 2006. By contrast the average power consumption for the American home is a measley 10,656 kilowatt-hours per year. When it comes to conspicuous energy consumption the Goracle is clearly leading the charge!

I guess this can best be attributed to as the earth prophet's burden.

He can't bear to see us lesser mortals caught up in the web of energy dependence so he's taking the burden of evil energy consumption upon himself.

This is an inspiring moment for the Rocketeer.

We should pray in the manner taught to us by the American Digest.

"Oh Great Goracle (All praise be to Thee), I here pray fervently.

Abide with me in my 65 degree house.Illuminate my soul as I read by the light of my 20 watt bulb.

Warm me with thy good cheer as I bask in my cold shower.Be the wind at my back as I dutifully bike 20 miles to work.

I have been thy good servant and done all, nay even more, than Thou hast asked of me.Surely I will be rewarded with your blessings from on high as you pass over in your glorious Green Jet.

Oh Goracle (All praise be to Thee) use your mighty powers to insure that all we little people will be forced to contribute to the great cause of saving Earth so we may all, each and every one, suffer equally in this most worthy cause.

All this I ask in the name of the Great Goracle, saviour of our globe from the evil CO2.

Amen (or "Apersons" as you may prefer)"

A World Without America

Brits get the message. The world would be a very different place without America.

But Don't Question their Patriotism!

The Senate Democratic leadership is exploring ways to limit the war-making powers of President Bush in fighting the terrorists in Iraq. A draft of the bill to be presented by Senator "Honest" Harry Reid of Searchlight, Nevada would prohibit the deployment of combat brigades by March 31st 2008 as was recommented by the Iraq (Surrender) Study Group.

The bill would further limit U.S. forces deployed in Iraq to training, border security and strict counterterrorism missions. The President would have to certify that any military offensive in Iraq would target al-Qaeda and not local insurgents or militias. The beauty part for the Democrats is that it would leave the President liable to an impeachable offense should he fail to make the case for attacking al-Qaeda in Iraq. Real nice. (Not!)

This kind of micro-managing of the war is clearly against the Constitution which estabilshes the President of the United States as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. But since when has that ever hindered the current leadership of the Democratic Party?

Incredibly enough there are some voices of reason within the Democratic Party as evidenced by this statement from Congressman Chet Edwards of Texas:

"If you strictly limit a commander's ability to rotate troops in and out of Iraq, that kind of inflexibility could put some missions and some troops at risk,".

Hurrah for Congressman Edwards of the 17th Congressional district in Texas! Would that there were people of his caliber running things in the Democratic Party today! Please send him a note of thanks for his authentic support of our troops and our nation in time of war. It's more Democrats like him that we need filling the halls of Congress today, rather than not-so-bright, leftist, defeatist, pork barrelers like "unindicted co-conspirator" of Abscam fame Congressman John Murtha running down the scenery around Washington.

Fox News carries the story here, and Captain Ed carries it here.
