Clearly Gore’s humble Nashville abode was way too confining, so Al has purchased a new gigantic pulpit from which to preach to the rest of us about how our gas-powered leaf blowers and electric can openers are killing the planet:
Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.
The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
It’s perfectly understandable — when you’re full of that much s#*t you need a lot of toilets — but a seaside mansion? Gore doesn’t seem too intimidated by the imminent rising oceans his fellow enviroscammers keep predicting. What a brave soul!
Even the commenters at Democratic Underground are turning on Gore.
You know, when it comes to Al Gore, this is one time I heartily agree with Obama:
“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”
And I do think at a certain point the argument is over.
There’s my two cents.
