Al Gore: Pounding the Pulpit ... Again

As reported on The Lead, Al Gore is at it again, going after the sinners among us:

In a wide-ranging interview, Gore told the Washington Post that Republicans are growing weary of those who reject the notion of climate change, likening them to “an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned so everyone avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace.”

Reverend Gore, of course, doesn't deny climate change. Climate change has been very good to him, though he hasn't made any notable personal sacrifices to curtail it or, even, set an example of saintliness. Does not fly commercial or live, at last report, in a yurt.

He has, in short, the same sort of relationship with "carbon" that Elmer Gantry had with sin.
