Dennis Miller had some harsh words for Al Gore Wednesday in the wake of the global warmingist-in-chief's decision to sell his Current TV network to oil-supported Al Jazeera.
Appearing on Fox News's O'Reilly Factor, Miller said, "He’s a bad guy. Ethically speaking, he makes John Edwards look like Sir Thomas More" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL O’REILLY, HOST: I'm Bill O'Reilly in the Miller time segment tonight. Let's get right to the sage of southern California, joining us now from Santa Barbara. All right, Miller, you heard Geraldo on top talking about Al Gore and Al Jazeera. And you say?
DENNIS MILLER: Well, you must, you shouldn't get too deep with Al Gore. He’s a bad guy. Ethically speaking, he makes John Edwards look like Sir Thomas More. At least Edwards was just a horn dog. This guy is an absolute genius at rationalization. Imagine the Rube Goldbergian contraption he has put up inside that thin little pea pod he calls his braincase to be allowed to think that he at the vanguard of the green movement can do business with big oil like this. How does Gore sleep at night other than, you know, eating a bag of donuts and hooking himself up to an IV of YooHoo and nodding off in a sugar coma? He’s an empty hack. He is such an empty hack I'm surprised he didn't become our president. And you know, at this point I would say, “Al, go seek absolution from Oprah. That's all you’ve got left.”
O’REILLY: Now, when did you - and this is a serious question - when did you decide that he was a bad guy?
MILLER: Well, I think when he made this much hay off a heartfelt cause. I don't like guys who profit from being a prophet. I think Gore was quite frankly in his youth kind of the Eloise of the Willard Hotel, you know, in D.C. He’s always lived in the wake of his old man. He was trying to, you know, carve out on his own. He got his head handed to him when he ran for election, and the people who turned him back, he’s going to say Florida, I’m going to say it was Tennessee. The people who knew him best knew that he shouldn't be allowed near that presidency. I think it broke his spirit. He decided to make any deal with any hot devil that he could, and he chose global warming, and now he’s probably worth north of a quarter billion dollars. Good for him. I'm glad he’s rich. But if he thinks we haven't noticed he’s a big hack who’s completely full of it, I don't know who’s kidding who.
Potentially the bigger issue is why the liberal media haven't come down on Gore's hypocrisy.
Can they really continue to stand behind this charlatan now that he's sold out to an oil-producing nation?
