Al Gore's Sex Life Ruined Climate Forever, Mark Kirk Says
Back when he was a member of the House, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) was one of a few Republicans who voted for a far-reaching climate change bill. That legislation quickly fueled Tea Party rage, and conservatives went on the attack against the plan's backers. So Kirk did an about face on the issue, and now blames... Al Gore's personal life for the whole sorry episode.
"The consensus behind the climate change bill collapsed and then further deteriorated with the personal and political collapse of Vice President [Al] Gore," Kirk told Greenwire.
Actually, Mark Kirk's wife divorced him rather recently too. And everyone thinks he's secretly gay. So perhaps Mark Kirk simply confused Al Gore with himself. That probably happens to boring people like this all the time. [TPM]
