Sundance Pontifex Maximus

AB FREEDOM noted some more pontifications coming from the esteemed political think-tank known as the Sundance Film Festival.

In this instance, Al Gore joins in with the common assumption in Utah these days that Stephen Harper's Conservative party was parachuted into Canada by George W. Bush's personal Stealth bomber.

Unfortunately for Mr. Gore, the bald assertions he makes about Harper being in the pocket of "big oil" comes from a remarkably American attitude that feels confident to speak about matters it knows nothing about. The fact is that Canada does not have the corporate money machinery that the US political system has. In fact, Harper wants to implement reforms that will limit the corporate input even more.

In light of Mr. Gore's glaring misunderstanding of the Canadian scene, his comments appear to be mere politicking, if not a self-aggrandizing, self-vindication of his own Kyoto hobby-horse.

As I mentioned before in my previous post, this has less to do with politics than with "entertainment news."

On the contrary, Gore has a great deal of personal knowledge about politicians being in bed with "big oil" being one himself. Al was the best VP Occidental/Armand Hammer's money could buy.

I find it amazing that Gore's "tea pot dome" oil scandal with Occidental isn't wider knowledge in Canada...the punk was reamed over it the US...it's why he's political poison to the ethical Dems left in government and they keep him at a distance.

So true Clint, and thanks for the link.
