Al Gore increases his carbon footprint, buys house in ritzy Santa Barbara neighborhood

Al Gore

Albert H. Gore. The "H", of course, stands for Hypocrite

Sometimes a mansion in Tennessee just isn’t enough. When you’re busy jetting around the world saving humanity from the terrors of global warming, you really need a west coast getaway. So global warming hypocrite Al Gore has now purchased a little place in California.

Oh, wait. Did we say “little place”? Not exactly. It’s a huge friggin’ estate overlooking the Pacific ocean in toney Montecito, California.

The Los Angeles Times reports the hypocritical news:

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

For those of you who don’t live in California, let us explain local real estate terminology.

“Peekaboo ocean view” means you can see the ocean if you stand on a chair and look out the kitchen window.

“Ocean view” means you can see a patch of blue without standing on the chair.

“Oceanfront” means there are actual waves lapping at your back door.

Some people wonder why a man as wealthy as Gore didn’t spring for an oceanfront house.

Well, the fact is that Al Gore is just plain smarter than we common folk. He knows that as the oceans rise, his new house will eventually become oceanfront.

Now why would he make such a stupid investment like that? We all know the seas will rise in the next few years because of global warming, so his new house will be flooded soon!

He had to get a crib closer to the LA County courts, so he can bail Al Jr out once every 6 months when he gets busted with a few thousand vicodins, some hillbilly heroin, and a few ounces of coke.

Try to tell me he isn’t making a fortune on pushing his version of the green agenda. Remember when greenies were all into less is more?

What a hypocrite. Algore tells me, in-directly, how I should reduce my carbon footprint and he buys a home with 9 bathrooms!

When you’re as full of crap as Al Gore, you need nine bathrooms.

Again if you work hard for the dough and you want to buy a big house it is all good… although in Gore’s case I dont think he really worked hard for that dough.

However the “you can do with less but I dont have to because I can pay my way out of the environmental debts I accrue” talk is BS. If he really feels strongly about the environment he should walk the walk not just talk the talk. It is the hypocrisy that bothers me greatly. People like that make me angry.

KQ, you & me both don’t have a problem with anyone making millions honestly & living the good life. That’s part of the American dream. Al Gore says we should all live minimally to save the planet, but he lives like a king on the fraud he promotes & has a lifestyle that is completely opposite of what he advocates. So in short, he is a fraudster & a hypocrite, other then that, he seems like an OK guy.

In realtorbonics, ‘ocean view’ is defined as: once a year, your night binoculars will help you see fog skimming the west horizon before the sun rises and burns it off.

“in Gore’s case I dont think he really worked hard for that dough”
In *nobody’s* case, do they work enough for that kind of ‘dough’. All ‘wealthy’ people are parasites upon the productive.

Why rely on a link to the lying libuurrl cover up media Los Angeles Times? Why not an authoritative

Sorry Tipper, no one actually understands what you’re trying to say.
Try removing Al’s cranium from up your ass, then maybe the pitch of your voice will be a low enough octave that we will understand you.

We all know you’re faster than lightning. Everyone you see, is smarter than she, and we know Tipper, Tipper, lives in a world full of wonder, flying there-under, under Al’s green.
