In the interest of saving time and money

At present, we still have much to learn about the NSA's domestic surveillance. What we do know about this pervasive wiretapping virtually compels the conclusion that the President of the United States has been breaking the law repeatedly and insistently.

A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government.

Not Sharpton. Not Franken. Not Quaeda or Cohol, but Gore.

A guy who was to the manor born and remains in some odd ways a beltway insider even as he tries to be inconvenient.

Not too long ago Gore was a feckless senator and an even more incapacitated presidential candidate. Now he's pulling out something on the minds of shitloads of Americans of various "stripes."

He's not in public office. Can we imagine Clinton, or McCain, or Obama, or Hagel, or any other fine public seat warmers talking like this? Why is it so hard for them to say it? Could it be that if this were said, the office holder saying it would actually have to do something -- hold hearings, move to impeach, etc.?

It teeters on antinomy: The people who can speak something like the truth lack power to do what the truth requires; the people in power can't bring themselves to speak anything like the truth.

Any aspirant declared or undeclared that fails to voice what Gore is saying is a coward, repugnant to common sense and, in the current environment, unelectable.

I trust that saves some time and wasted campaigning.
