Al Gore "invented the Internet" - resources

You can stay - but it is pretty darn close:

pretty fascinating how words/perception/even outright fiction can turn into "fact"

Didn't realize the GOP was responsible...

Anyway, once and for all here is what Gore actually said

Transcript: Vice President Gore on CNN's 'Late Edition' - March 9, 1999

Quote:
During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.

I could deal with that becoming fact as well, I won't even mind if the GOP is to blame.

You just can't have a Bill Clinton quote without that one!

Who was that crazy dem. that spoke back at the rep. convention in the 2004 election that said something like "What do they want us to do shoot spit balls at them" talking about the dems. and funding for the war. That speach he made was a classic.

Not really going to effect anything. Old, senile Arlen voted with the Dems most of the time anyways.

He only changed parties because he knows that he would lose the primary to Pat Toomey this time around. He's hated in his own party and state (other than Philly). This was a last-ditch effort to hang on for a 40th term.

The last straw was his support for the Pork Package. If he stayed in the party, he'd lose.

Re: Sen. Arlen Specter Switches to the Democratic Party

Some good quotes from a recent Republican VP:

"The future will be better tomorrow."

"We don't want to go back to tomorrow, we want to go forward."

"[It's] time for the human race to enter the solar system."

"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur."

"I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy - but that could change."

Both sides have their share of gaffes that's for sure.

I loved Zell Miller. Men like him are what we need more of...guys who do not have an allegiance to a political party, yet rather to their nation.
