Inconvenient Truths of Al Gore

Updated on July 6, 2010

Al and Tipper Gore recently announced that they were divorcing after 40 years of marriage. According to an e-mail sent to friends then forwarded to the Associated Press, the break up was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration." Unfortunately, my immediate thought after reading that was...he must have cheated on Tipper and someone or others will be coming out from the woodwork to tell their story.

Al Gore was someone that I once admired, supported and voted for in 2000. I, like many was upset when the presidency was taken from him because of the Florida ballot fiasco (which that state was "conveniently" run by a Bush brother serving as Governor.) The image he portrayed as a family man, involved with his wife and children made me think that he was one politician that seemed different from others. He seemed like he truly loved his wife and was a good father and husband.

Maybe, he wasn't a scumbag like all the other politicians and they just simply grew apart. After all, forty years is a long time to be with the same person, Hell...five years is a long time to be with be with the same person. Part of me wanted so badly to believe in the above scenario that they grew apart. I keep thinking to myself that there has to be at least a few decent, honorable men who believe in the marriage vows they took, which includes a promise to be true to their spouse in good times and in bad, to love, honor and to cherish, till death do them part. Why is it so hard to keep a promise as important as that one? Now, I'm glad that he didn't win the presidency and I just believe that he employed a good Public Relations person to hide his...should I write this next cheesy sentence? How can I not, here I hide his "inconvenient truth."

Well, over the last few days, news has surfaced that Big Al, is being sued by a masseuse who claims that he sexually harassed her and she has the pants she was wearing that day to "prove" her claims. Although the masseuse doesn't go into further detail about her pants, does a certain "blue dress" from a certain White House intern come to mind? The masseuse said that she was uneasy from the moment he greeted her in his hotel suite, when he asked her to massage his lower abdomen, she again felt uneasy since the abdomen is not normally an area that's included in a massage. The masseuse obviously knew what was happening and still proceeded to continue and that does certify her as a SKANK! She billed over $500 for that massage, kept her pants and figured that after giving Big Al a "happy ending," she would get her own happy suing.

Other stories have now surfaced that Al had an affair with 60 Minutes reporter, Leslie Stahl for several years. Reports are also going public that he also had an affair for several years with his "An Inconvenient Truth" producer, Laurie David. I'm sure more information will come out about other affairs over the last forty years. I wonder if Tipper knew that she was married to a scumbag. If she did, then shame on her for allowing him to continually do that to her and his family. If she didn't know, I'm glad that she left him and I hope she finds someone she can trust again and finally live her convenient truth. She's the one who deserves a Nobel Peace Prize and I bet she was the one who really invented the internet too! Lol

      Maybe Tipper had affairs too, although I doubt it. I have never had a husband of boyfriend stray on me, I have never been hurt that way, but I might someday, I hope not, but men are funny creatures.

      I am a nurse, and I lost count of all the married men making advances on me, some were even in intensive care at the time. It just makes you wonder how they are thinking.

      If women just all stuck together and resisted these idiots, everyone would be better off. But there is always some woman out there who feels flattered by such things and can and will have an affair with a married man or someone who is in a relationship. Usually this kind of woman has low self esteem , she wants attention at all cost, and she does not care who she hurts.

      I think big Al was wrong to go after the masseuse, but she should have kept her mouth shut about it. She had plenty of time to leave, but she didn't. Going public with her evidence makes her look like a real low life, does'nt anyone know how a lady acts anymore?
