CBS: George W. Bush to Blame for Divorce Al and Tipper Gore


Good news! Even though George W. Bush was succeeded as president by Barack Obama 1.5 years ago, our beloved left-wing mainstream media are somehow still able to blame him for just about every ill in the world. No kidding, they’re even holding him responsible for the announced divorce between former vice-president turned global warming warrior Al Gore and his wife Tipper. I know what you’re thinking, “that doesn’t make sense! How in the world can Bush, who has nothing whatsoever to do with the Gores, be responsible? Did he seduce Tipper, or something?”

Why, no:

On Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, with the help of the Washington Post’s Sally Quinn, Sharyl Attkisson managed to blame news, that Al and Tipper Gore are separating, on how they never got over being denied the presidency despite winning the popular vote in 2000. If only Bush hadn’t taken it from them.

Attkisson recalled “it’s been ten years since that oddly public passionate kiss at the Democratic convention. That was followed by Gore winning the popular vote for President but losing the electoral vote. Family friend Sally Quinn says that may have done the marriage irreparable harm.”

Viewers then head from Quinn, who’s married former Post Executive Editor Ben Bradlee and is now titular overseer of the paper’s “On Faith” blog: “He obviously suffered a lot and still is suffering. He’ll never get over that and neither will she.”

Gore divorces because he lost the elections Bush stole the elections back in 2000. It took ten years before the Gores’ suffering caught up with them and ruined their marriage. Right.

Um, for some reason that doesn’t sound very logical to me – at all. Then again, I’m not a willfully blind ideological leftist so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised that I don’t swallow Attkisson’s incongruent diatribe.
