Parall-Al Earth

Saturday Night Live this weekend (5/13) had a couple of great cameos by Al Gore. On Weekend Update, he debated Amy Poehler about whether global warming is bad (his position) or "Awesome!" (Amy's position). That was pretty good, and ended with Amy beating Al to the punch by calling herself an ignorant slut, but the best part was the intro. It showed an Earth from a parallel universe, where Al won the 2000 presidential election. (Get the title now? Like, "parallel" Earth, with Al in charge? Clever, eh?) See the video at Crooks And Liars or YouTube.
Right now, in the 2nd week of May 2006, we are facing perhaps the worst gas crisis in history. We have way too much gasoline. Gas is down to $0.19 a gallon and the oil companies are hurting. I know that I am partly to blame by insisting that cars run on trash. I am therefore proposing a federal bailout to our oil companies because - hey if it were the other way around, you know the oil companies would help us.

...There are some of you that want to spend our money on some made-up war. To you I say: what part of "lockbox" don't you understand? What if there's a hurricane or a tornado? Unlikely I know because of the Anti-Hurricane and Tornado Machine I was instrumental in helping to develop.
