Al Gore Jr Demonstrates how fast a Toyota Prius can go....


Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES — The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for allegedly speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius, a sheriff's official said.

Al Gore III – whose father is a leading advocate of policies to fight global warming – was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 160 kilometres per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m.

I am not sure how a weed smoking son in a speeding hybrid damages Gore's credibility. I could see your point if he was caught with a hummer full of illegally cut timber....

My thoughts exactly. Furthermore, I'm guessing Gore's son is an individual complete and separate from his dad. Not sure how his actions would affect Gore's credibility unless Gore was out pitching some line about how his whole family lives by his values.

Gore's credibility can't possibly get worse. In fact, his son probably increased his credibility by proving that he doesn't breed plastic spoons and forks.

Like the Bush girls? If you don't think it doesn't reflect on Gore (or Bush, Chretien etc) why do you think it's newsworthy?

I don't think it's newsworthy.

You should write a letter to the 600 plus news orgs that carried the story and complain......and send of a note to AlGore too who was quick to give interviews telling everone that no one was hurt and it is a private family matter (well, except for the court thingies)

What's the fuel economy at 160km/h? Did he have the AC on?

How much does pot smoking contribute to GHG emissions? How much does the cost to real prescription med users increase because of the increased demand by junkies like Gore Jr.?

Every little bit helps people!

How would the cost of prescription medications increase (in theory)?

Supply and demand. Junkies demand more, the price shifts up.

The price might go up on the streets, but not at the pharmacy. It doesn't affect anyone getting it legally.

Maybe he was racing to get to Jenna's kegger?

Jenna's kegger was legal. I knowe it's a small distinction to a liberal, but there it is...

You've just demonstrated how foreign the concept of friendly ribbing has become to morose conservatives.

You've just demonstrated exactly the same thing...

I beleive Jenna was not of legal drinking age at the time...

I believe Jenna and non-Jenna were picked up for phony I.D.s. In any case, people shouldn't be so quick to judge Mr. Gore III. As I recall, Mr. Bush (43) was bailed out numerous times by Poppy Bush (41), both in business deals and legal frays and it was long after his 24th birthday.
