All we did was welcome Al Gore to his new home. Why are people so upset?

by editor on July 9, 2010

When we heard Al Gore was moving into a new beachside Montecito mansion just a couple hours down the road from IHateTheMedia.com’s international headquarters, we did the neighborly thing and tried to deliver a welcome basket filled with central coast wines. Unfortunately, the security guards weren’t as neighborly as we were.

So we did the next best thing and ran an ad in the Montecito Journal, Al’s new hometown newspaper, welcoming the Goracle to the neighborhood.

We did it because we’re warmhearted, caring people.

So why are we getting all these angry emails?

My favorite is Leonardo DiCaprio’s response to a reporter’s question whether he eve flies on private jets which are, of course, the greatest energy wasters per man-hour of flight. Professor DiCaprio’s response:

“There are situations within my industry where I have to get to someplace during a time frame where it’s impossible to fly commercial. ”

What is so pressing that you have to fly somewhere by a private jet, Leo, a cocktail party? A publicity appearance for one of your movies? As usual it is the little people who are expected to sacrifice for global warming, not the elites.

I really can’t think of anything that a Hollywood celebrity could do that I would actually consider to be important.

Ditto.

I’m sure there are others, but the one that comes to mind that deserves kudos is Gary Sinise and the work he does for the troops in Iraq & Afghanistan and his charity for Iraqi children. That and the celebs that entertain the troops with the USO.

And that Tony is what pisses me off. It is ALL good for Leo to take a jet for those appearances, but it is not okay for anyone else to do it, because NO ONE else travel plans are as important as his and people in HIS industry. Pathetic.

Oh come on. You know very well that Hollywood types are the only ones who “have to get somewhere during a time frame where it’s impossible to fly commercial”. Give the guy a break!!

So, does he now own two homes that will be underwater in 20 years? The global warmers hate trees, because they want to cut their food down.

Here’s one that is in the Hate Mail link here

You all sound like a little KKK Klub to me. I just saw the big ad you put in the Montecito Journal about Al Gore… your info (you hate the media) that you got from the LA times is incorrect. al and Tipper are divorcing. And as a long time Montecito resident, I wish to point out most of the homes in the over-crowded newly-rich wanna-be important people living there
right lift, white, black, all have big homes with all the same trimmings as are found in Montana and Utah. If you really hate the media., why do you misquote the, quote them, and buy add space. Believe me, Montecieto wants what it wants and poold, fountains, kkoi and crab cakes abound. Your site is quite sophmoric and your battle is silly. Go mow your lawn and wash your ooown car, practice what you preach. I chop my wood from my own ranch and burn it in a fireplace made my my father for heat. You all seem pathetic with the US economony in ruins from the Bush years and his lillegal war. But I think it is very nice that you are supporting the gay movement with tea-bagging. I never would have qussed you all would have been into theactivity, but it is your right.

(The Real Boston Tea Party was about taxes on tes, sent from Britian, who taxed the colonies for the addictive and therefore necessary substance gleened from other invaded countries they made slaves to their trade. The real men who were in th “tea Party” painted their faces and dressed as American Indains to try to hide theeir deed, they were so brave! Freedom from taxes and entitlement was the reason we came here, along with the wish to not be trapped on Islands eating potatoes.

The Spanards and Mexicans will have to defend themselves since they took the land from the Chumash. We are the foot,we smash the lives of others. Shame on US. This is a weenie site. We could all be doing something really helpful but we are sitting in front of a screen, venting…

As long as the neighbors in their million dollar homes aren’t espousing their hypocritical b.s. about global warming then I could care less about their ‘carbon footprint’. Gore’s hypocrisy knows no bounds, but I’m sure he’ll stock up on the carbon credits so we’ll all feel better about it.

34 thumbs down? why?

The guy is a serious idiot. He was obviously angry with all those misspellings. The last sentence is comical, while he is sitting in front of a screen venting he is pointing fingers and looking down on people for sitting in front of a screen venting. Typical libtard.

The real Tea Party was about taxation WITHOUT REPRESENTATION which is exactly what we’re getting from washington today. Hence the need for the Tea Party to push back at an unresponsive behemoth. You are sooo misguided and veiled from the truth. Why?

I can’t wait until Al takes his first dip in the Pacific Ocean at which time I’m sure we’ll hear “Argggghhhh mateys! Man the harpoons! That she blows!”

Of course, we might only hear the last one when the first masseuse arrives. I hope she has a good dry cleaner.

Brilliant, as usual. When did it run? Did you notice the typo? What kind of emails are you getting? They might be fun to read here on IHTM. Is TIpper part of the deal or his masseuse or both?
