Gore Goes Mad


John Podhoretz thinks Al Gore is bonkers. In today's New York Post he describes Gore's speech as a public mental meltdown:

"I mean that based on his behavior, conduct, mien and tone over the past two days, there is every reason to believe that Albert Gore Jr., desperately needs help. I think he needs medication, and I think that if he is already on medication, his doctors need to adjust it or change it entirely."

From the ill-conceived Faustian reference to the "American Gulag" analogy, Gore's speech was a barely-coherent mass of bitterness.

Mr. Podhoretz concludes:

"Gore's speech is the single craziest political performance of my lifetime, and I use the word "craziest" advisedly. The speech, at 6,600 words, was twice as long as Bush's address to the nation on Monday night. The indiscipline shown by the sheer endlessness of Gore's address is a reflection of the psychic morass in which he has become mired."

Let's all take a collective sigh of relief that Mr. Gore was not our commander in chief on 11 September 2001.
