My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Priorities, Priorities

About a month ago I speculated that the Congressional Democrats and Washington glitterati would not turn out in force for the debut of United 93-- certainly not in the same sort of numbers as did for Michael Moore's great fiction.

Turns out they had yet another opportunity to show what they think is important (courtesy of The Corner)

Former Vice President Al Gore debuted his global-warming documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," Wednesday night to a Washington audience that included members of Congress and Queen Noor of Jordan.

When he found out when the Washington screening was scheduled, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he told Gore, "I'll make sure we're not going to have any votes tonight so we can come see your movie." Reid said the Bush administration has made a number of mistakes but that "nothing is comparable to his ignoring the death of our planet."

I wonder if the voters of Nevada have any way of making sure that a picture of Harry Reid embracing Al Gore is available.
