The right-wingers, or course, are trying to spin with their USUAL crap: "Ohhhh! He's over the top! He's crazy!" They really need a new act. "Criticizing Bush means you're crazy" is REALLY getting old.
But they CAN'T spin it. We all saw it. People keep go and look at the video stream of the speech expecting someone screaming like a maniac - and what they see is an intelligent, controlled, righteously angry person.
In an hour long speech, Gore raised his voice twice.
And he raised his voice because they were cheering so loud.
And here's what Americans were cheering:
- "How dare the incompetent and willful members of this Bush/Cheney Administration humiliate our nation and our people in the eyes of the world and in the conscience of our own people? How dare they subject us to such dishonor and disgrace? How dare they drag the good name of the United States of America through the mud of Saddam Hussein's torture prison?"
And they were cheering because it's about time somebody said it.
HOW DARE THEY?
Thank you, Mr. Gore.
