This isn’t GA politics, but since some of us were discussing “our favorite Oscar winner” earlier, I couldn’t help but post this from John Fund’s piece in today’s Opinion Journal Political Diary (WSJ).
… Then it was revealed that Mr. Gore’s sprawling mansion in Nashville was consuming 20 times the power of a typical American household, and that its consumption had actually increased since the release of the Gore film, in which the former vice president can be seen telling audiences they should curb their use of electric power.
The Tennessee Center for Policy Research obtained public records that showed Mr. Gore’s mansion in the tony Belle Meade neighborhood has been consuming a monthly average of 18,414 kilowatt-hours, nearly twice what the average American home consumes in an entire year. His electric bill averaged $1359 a month in 2006 and his gas bill was $536. His heated pool house alone consumed more natural gas than his entire main living quarters.
The comment from Al’s people, according to Fund’s piece:
Mr. Gore’s office responded with a lame statement claiming that his energy consumption was appropriate because he obtained all of it from a local “powerswitch” program that used 100% renewable fuels, whatever that means.
Gore isn’t just a crazed moron who doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about anymore. He can definitely add hypocrite to his bio!
