Gore Absolutely Unhinged

It's sad to see one man so consumed with hate and bitterness over an election he lost. Al Gore seems to have come completely unhinged now, and it's becoming uncomfortable to watch. His most recent meltdowns included equating President Bush's religious faith to "the same fundamentalist impulse that we see in Saudi Arabia, in Kashmir," and calling Vice-President Cheney's criticisms of Democrats "sleazy and despicable".

He has taken the sore loser act to a whole new level. "I am Al Gore and I used to be the next president of the United States," is how he introduces himself. He can't seem to get past the fact that he lost. Constitutionally, he was defeated. When sworn in, the President takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Following the letter of the law of that very Constitution, he lost. How can he feel entitlement to the post of Commander-In-Chief, while holding such disdain for the very document that guarantees that title?
