The best hate mail response to our “Welcome Al Gore” ad

by editor on July 12, 2010


The posh Gore villa in Montecito, California has a sizeable carbon footprint

You’ve probably seen the ad we ran to welcome Al Gore to the tony seaside community of Montecito, California. It’s gone viral and the traffic has already downed our server twice.

As expected, we’ve received a ton of hate mail, but none more hateful and incoherent than this one from a proud, liberal Montecito resident.

Montecito Resident

The town is making every sarcastic, insulting remark about your outfit from our offices to the restaurants. You’re a laughing joke!

1. No one “warmly” welcomes someone they despise.

2. Those who “hate” the media, would not contribute to it by paying for a full-page ad.

3. Why would you care about a so-called carbon footprint, when you obviously don’t believe there is such a thing as climate change?

4. Al Gore did not build this house. Why have you not attacked the person who designed it and built on grounds that use to be open space and supported views and wildlife? Why are you not angry with the people that owned it before Mr. Gore?

5. I live alone and have 4 TV’s, however, never is there more than one on at a time! You can have 17 fireplaces, but usually only one is on at a time, not six! That house has gas fireplaces – it will not be burning any forests. (Sorry you don’t have even one.)

6. Why have you not attacked Ivan Reitman, Stuart Whitman, Dennis Miller, Carole Burnett, Steve Martin, Oprah, John Cleese and Rob Rowe, Eric Schmidt of Google??????? I could go on and on.

7. Over 80% of houses with ocean views in Montecito have over an acre, a swimming pool and spa and multiple fireplaces, bedrooms and baths. Duh! You’ve obviously never stepped your carbon smutty foot in Montecito!

8. I’m sorry your hatred and envy of what you think you know, but don’t, is burning such a hot hole in your heart. I guess those who have nothing, and no power, will always blame others and resent their success.

P.S. You’ll have no money in the Bank of Karma at the end of your life either.

Think we’d be safe in saying “LifeInMontecito” isn’t a fan of

“…town is making every sarcastic, insulting remark about your outfit from our offices to the restaurants…”I’ll bet long odds that the people WORKING in those offices and restaurants don’t agree – and don’t vote that way. They probably laugh at you behind your back and who knows what they do to your food before serving it.This reminds me of that Helmsley gal, “only the little people pay taxes”.


What a moron. Seriously. I think I got dumber just by reading this letter.


You gotta do it like Bugs:

“What a MAH ROON!”
