“Al Gore” on the Colbert Report. This is really funny. Al Gore has been great, likeable, alive, ever since he lost to George Bush.
I particularly like this quote:
“One of the reasons the economy is in trouble is because we keep going to war in the middle east in the place where most of the oil is located, and we keep borrowing money from China to buy oil from a market dominated by Saudi Arabia and then burn it in ways that destroy the future of the planet. All of that’s got to change.”
So money is borrowed from China, then funneled through the US into the middle east. Sounds like a terrific long-term geopolitical strategy right there!
