Yeah, I for one would love to see a real life throwdown between these two cats but, you know…Al is evidently a pretty busy guy…I mean he can’t even make it to the “Social Goods Summit” so, it’s no surprise that he can’t find time to take up the Lord on his repeated
taunts…err… offers to debate.
All in all, it appears that “Global Warming” is now called “Dirty Weather” and “Agenda 21″ is now simply “Sustainability”.
Al Gore ice sculpture from Frozen Gore.
Fairbanks, AK- In an ongoing effort to attract Former Vice President Al Gore to come to Fairbanks and debate his man-made global warming theories, a unique interactive ice sculpture will be unveiled Tuesday, January 5th in downtown Fairbanks.
The new sculpture, a 6′ tall, 4,000 lb, likeness of Mr. Gore will be uncovered at the corner of Airport Road and Cushman Street next to Thrifty Liquor. This year the carving features an audio dub of Mr. Gore’s Dec. 2009 Copenhagen speech suggesting the entire Polar Ice cap will likely disappear in the next 5 to 7 years, and urging us to upgrade our light bulbs.
Here’s a different kind of gig; from AP.
The final note of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign may very well be sung by Jon Bon Jovi.
The musician is performing at a fundraiser for the former presidential candidate as she tries to close out her campaign debt, which stood at $6.3 million as of last month.
The Jan. 15 performance at Manhattan’s Town Hall is being billed as “a final evening in support of Hillary Clinton for President Debt Relief.”
Ticket prices range from $75 to $1,000.
The political fundraiser gig is one where you have to weigh the consequences anyway. Do you want to risk alienating half the audience by showing public support for a politician as any politician is a polarizing figure? Now, a lot of players look at it as mercenary work because, surprisingly, many fund raising gigs are paying gigs. I’m getting paid so, I’m going to play. No different than being a caterer; do the work take the cash. Except, when was the last time you saw an AP story about who was catering a fund raising party?
And, some players feel the need to take a public stand on their political views. And, some feel that the publicity grab outweighs polarization.
Debt Relief? How un-sexy is that? Thinking about it though, it’s pretty easy to spin that one your way. “Really, I’m taking a stand on debt relief”.
Hmmmm….maybe it’s time for a concert for the National Debt. Debt Aid. Al Gore, he’s an experienced concert promoter. He could ramrod the big Debt Aid show.
It could be a coming together, a healing process; Debt Aid featuring The Dixie Chicks and Toby Kieth. You could have Jimmie Vaughan sitting in with Kanye. Nas and Charlie Daniels. Jackson Browne doing a comedy sketch with Victoria Jackson (Jackson and Jackson).
Mull it over and get back to me.
