(Political) cat fight!
OK … given, I did just call Al Gore “reptilian.” But check out this quote from erstwhile Gore press secretary Chris Lehane:
As long as Justice Scalia — Judge Grinch — does not have the Supreme Court rule that the Gores’ book cannot be a stocking stuffer for the holidays, I am sure it will do well. Also, Bush should like the Gore picture book — with all the photos, it is right up his alley, while the Woodward book seems to be a little long and dense for his type of a read.
This isn’t some shitbird from Buzzflash, mind you – this is a former Gore staffer, on the record! What a smarmy jerk! If Gore doesn’t purge that kind of sniping from his next campaign, he can hang it up and save himself the trouble of being defeated.
