Global Warming, groins and Gore

Update 2- PDF of the Portland Police Bureau's file on the Gore sexual assault allegations including the 67-page transcript of the alleged victim's January,2009 interview with the police.
Scroll to the last for R rated stuff.

I have no idea what they are saying in this Taiwanese video(one can take a wild guess, though) but it is hilarious. More so if the wacky humor is unintentional -or maybe it isn't.Anybody who speaks the lingo let us know.

The God of Global Warming has been accused of molesting a masseuse.Next Media Animation put's it's creative talents to work out what might have happened-

Some screenshots-

While the video is amusing the allegations are not-
The massage therapist said Gore asked for an abdominal massage, according to a transcript of the interview released by police. The masseuse said Gore began to moan during his appointment, insisted that she go lower, and grabbed her hand and guided it to his pubic area.

She later claimed Gore tried to have sex with her and began to embrace her before she wriggled out of his grasp.

A close friend of a Portland massage therapist who accused former Vice President Al Gore of groping her says the therapist told her soon after the 2006 encounter that she'd been violated and assaulted by "someone in the higher ups."

Donna Burleigh of Keizer said her best friend didn't identify the person, but when Gore returned to Portland years later, her friend "freaked out."

"She freaked and split. She said her predator was back and coming to town. She up and left," Burleigh said.

And he paid 540$ for the services, real or expected.

Wow! A 540$ massage! The fat god has money to burn. It might be his divine disdain of wealth.Isn't it interesting that the haters of Capitalism often live like filthy, rich pigs they accuse others of being-what's a $540 massage here or a $9 million mansion in the hills there- and damn the carbon footprint.

We would say that he is a giant hypocrite -but gods work in mysterious ways.

Or, as a commentator with the sagacious sounding name of 2fly4pdx  says,
global warming made him do it

Ann Althouse compares the media treatment of a liberal(i.e. leftist) icon and a conservative one.No surprise there.

Update 2 cont'd -
   More on the allegations:
Gore, who she portrayed as a tipsy, handsy predator who forced her to drink Grand Marnier, pinned her to a bed, and forcibly French kissed her. The woman's statement--which could be mistaken for R-rated Vice Presidential fan fiction--describes Gore as a man with a "violent temper as well as extremely dictatorial commanding attitude besides his Mr. Smiley Global Warming concern persona." After fleeing Gore's suite, the woman returned home to discover, a la Lewinsky, "stains on the front of my black slacks." Suspecting that the stains were Gore bodily fluids, the woman made sure not to clean them. "I carefully hung them up and decided to be sure not to launder them until I knew more what to do with what had happened. Just my intuition." While the masseuse hired a civil attorney, "I was not interested in making any money from this case," she told cops. "I did not want to be labeled a gold digger like the women in this situation are often labeled." The woman recently eased off this principled stand when she offered to sell her story to the National Enquirer for $1 million. (15 pages)

Prashant commented on my earlier post about Barkha Dutt and came up with this gem-
News is not breaking, it is broken.
How true.

We the ignored people

Surely it's not just me who is getting tired of Barkha Dutt hogging the mike, cutting off inconvenient opinions(those that don't chime with hers'), giving most of the time to the invited celebrities and other elites with just a few crumbs of time for the small folks to edge in a question or an opinion with no follow ups -and this on a show called "We the People"?

Surely not.

What is life without the Western Civilization?

Shelby Steele in an excellent article, "Israel and the Surrender of the West"-
.....the entire Western world has suffered from a deficit of moral authority for decades now. Today we in the West are reluctant to use our full military might in war lest we seem imperialistic; we hesitate to enforce our borders lest we seem racist; we are reluctant to ask for assimilation from new immigrants lest we seem xenophobic; and we are pained to give Western Civilization primacy in our educational curricula lest we seem supremacist. Today the West lives on the defensive, the very legitimacy of our modern societies requiring constant dissociation from the sins of the Western past—racism, economic exploitation, imperialism and so on.

West today is battered from without and eaten up from within.It's own leaders -political and intellectual- are hastening the decline. Some unwittingly but others, like Obama, with eagerness and relish.When the Western Civilization, as we commonly understand it, finally dies, it's replacement in the world and in the West won't be a pretty one. Despite all the talk of a multi-polar world, the non-western poles tilt towards despotism, even those that like India have a democratic veneer.

Israeli oppression over Indian compassion

Behold the starving masses of Gaza -

Poor bare footed, half naked Gazans - no goods in their empty shops-

No wonder their markets are sad and lonely-

Blood sucking Israelis!

 If only the evil Jews could blockade parts of India and and give them the Gaza treatment-

Child nibbling on a piece of silica-laced mud
 Frail, malnourished children eating moist lumps of mud laced with silica — a raw material for glass sheets and soap .......... This is what an HT reporter saw in a village of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Israeli oppression would be a vast improvement over Indian compassion.
