Gore’s Media Hypocrisy

VDH writes in the Corner:

Gore himself took on prophet-like status and wished to equate the global-warming/climate-change religion with his own godhead, and yet he now seems surprised that his movement suffers bad publicity, oblivious that it might be, at least in some small part, also related to his own public hypocrisies, whether the multiple energy-gorging luxury houses he owned, the private jetting and yacht, or the “crazed sex poodle” charges.

The point is not whether these hypocrisies or unproven harassment charges have anything to do with the purported warming of the planet, only that a guru who lives by defining his cult-like movement through his own person, should not be shocked that his cause suffers in the court of popular opinion when its media-absorbed, globe-trotting self-appointed messiah hits hard times.
