More Gore

Ah, the freedom to tell it like it is:

Jacksonville.com: Gore blasts Bush political ads as 'not worthy of the presidency'
"For the president of the United States to claim in a television ad that those who disagreed with the decision to go to war with Iraq are against attacking terrorists is a disgrace..."

"It is a cheap and petty political tactic not worthy of the presidency. It is something you would find in a down-and-dirty sleazy campaign for city council," Gore added, drawing laughs from the partisan crowd at Middle Tennessee State University.

He said Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt did not inspire fear but called for courage in urging support of World War II. "I'm concerned (Bush) is turning out to be a divider, not a uniter," Gore said.
See that last sentence. Lately Gore's in the habit of using understatement a lot, which I applaud; when/if he ever gets quoted verbatim (which I'd claim right-wing media doesn't do a whole lot), it's hard to make him sound like a fire-breathing maniac.

Got this from a very amusing thread at Kos.
