Former Vice President Al Gore is asking Democratic activists to send donations to House Democrats’ campaign arm as a check on the “extreme elements in control of today’s Republican Party.”
“Not since the dark days of the Bush administration have we seen a Republican-controlled Congress that is so intent on pushing their agenda in Washington — protecting tax breaks for oil companies making record profits, attempting to roll back environmental regulations, and not only refusing to pass climate change legislation in any form but refusing to acknowledge that climate change even exists,” Gore wrote in a fundraising pitch for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
Sure, conservative groups send out hysterical emails, too, but they weren’t the ones sanctimoniously demanding a “new tone” in politics, either.
Of course, there’s a certain irony here, since, if Gore and his eco-loony acolytes have their way, we really will see “dark days” — from a lack of power.
