OK, so, they've changed the caption now, though the "alcoholic" bit remains in the story's second graph. Still, what really inspired a Wonkette call to arms was this:
While his new fame often draws a crowd, and often requires him to have aides in tow, he sometimes travels solo to business meetings or out and about. One friend recalled how Mr. Gore was alone in a San Francisco subway station recently, eating a low-fat sandwich as passers-by took pictures of him.
Surely at least one person who saw the absurd image of Al Gore eating a sandwich in a subway station and knew it had to be photographed also reads this blog. The first person to send us a pic wins the coveted Wonkette Medal of Freedom. Bonus points for explaining how passers-by knew it was low-fat. Our guess: Gore was saying "I AM EATING A LOW-FAT SANDWICH" to nobody in particular
