al gore - crack whore? by Tetra Grammaton on 2000-02-01 12:56:13

for the real perverts out there, here's a place to actually talk about (ew) politics. what do you think about the New Hampshire primary results? do wish Gary Bauer would put in those razor-tipped dentures and go after Dubya? should Bradley start drinking tequila? share.

  Just for Wash, I thought I'd bring this topic to attention again.

  Cheers, man. I'll try to get him mentioned in the french newspaper tomorrow! (I'm discussing the war to give a foreigner's point of view). Damnit!

  Well, I did the interview for the newspaper, and had to smile when I managed to slip Al Gore into the conversation. Let's pray that they use that part when its published tomorrow. If it is, it will be scanned, and posted, as I did it for you guys! I didn't call him a crack whore, as it doesn't translate easily!

  What? When seriously interviewed about the war in Iraq, you didn't needlessly point out the man who shares a surname with a horror film is selling his body on the streets for illegal substances? Whyever not? Best message I've ever got on my phone, mind.

  We're in the paper today. Has a big box on the front page telling us to turn to page 5 to read the views of 2 English, 1 Spanish, and 1 American living in the town. Then we've a big picture, and a good 5 paragraph article! Sadly, despite my efforts, the Al Gore bit was not included. I did get mentioned for hiding my worry behind a "so british" humour! Nie work i thought. I purposefully didn't say much due to the sensitivity of the subject, especially as i'm a bit of a public eye figure at the moment. (bigging myself up a bit there, but you know what i mean, working in a high school in a smallish town).

  I would have liked to have kept Bill Clinton. By no means perfect, I much preferred him to any of the choices we had last election. Which brings up the point that I believe term limits to be bullshit. Who wants their barber or surgeon or airline pilot to have term limits? Jesus, if you don't want the polician back, don't elect him/her. Duh.

I could NOT agree more, Tommie. Its an outdated and, evidently, stupid rule. Glad you brought it up.

I've been on my newspaper article, and translated this little bit for you. After 4 paragraphs of serious war talk, it turns to me, and say:
"Wash hides his worry behind his “so British” humour, readily changing the conversation to football, noting that his fellow Englishmen living in the Creuse area often find each other in the tea isle of the supermarket.
Tabloids, eh!

  Are you going to sue?

  Of course not! After all, that is what I said, and it doesn't bother me in the slightest that they wrote that. At least there's no chance of any fanatics tracking me down and kicking my arse for saying something they disagreed with!

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind sueing the bitch who told all our Spanish class to get a TB test done, as she's a carrier of the disease and there's a chance we may have been infected. I told her last week that we'd all bought the test, paid for the appointment to get it done, and all results were ok. She then laughed, and said: "Oh, in fact, it was just a joke. My doctor joked that I should warn everyone i've been in contact with, but i didn't quite get it!" Stupid woman! There goes 25Euros i'll never see again, all coz she's unable to spot a bit of sarcasm!
