Big Al Weighs In…

Bigalweighsin…at about 260, I’d say. (But who am I to comment on his weight, eh?)

Apparently, Big Al is convinced that Harper is in the back pocket of Big Oil:

“The election in Canada was partly about the tar sands projects in Alberta,” Gore said Wednesday while attending the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

“And the financial interests behind the tar sands project poured a lot of money and support behind an ultra-conservative leader in order to win the election . . . and to protect their interests.”

Geez, Big Al, shouldn’t you have told us this BEFORE THE ELECTION! I mean, a man of your size stature would have been able to sway, what, maybe six or seven votes to the Liberals (well maybe three of those would have gone to Jack’s crew.)

Don’t let Al get confused by the facts.

The federal Elections Act limits how much money individuals, corporations and unions can donate to political parties. Individuals are allowed to give as much as $5,000 a year, while companies and unions are capped at $1,000 a year.

In their election platform, the Conservatives promised to further limit individual donations to a maximum of $1,000 and ban all donations from corporations, unions and organizations.

Parties and candidates are required to make public any contributions exceeding $200.

And this man thought he should be President. God help us all!

(Al, I think you may have been spending too much time lunching with your beefy brother, Michael Moore. Time to remove the tinfoil hat, Mr. Vice President, sir – and put that fork down, if not for your own sake, for Tipper’s.)

  1. I just hope he runs again. There’s just not enough comedy in our world.
