But, alas, awkward has revisited again.
Al Gore was invited by former rival and favorite environmental-ignorer George W. Bush to his Pennsylvania Avenue home, a.k.a., the White House .
How’s that for a party??
It was all part of a recognition party for the Nobel Prize winners.
CNN had the Oval Office play-by-play:
“The two men stood next to other, sharing uncomfortable grins for photographers and reporters, who were quickly ushered in and out.
‘Familiar faces,’ the former vice president said of the media. Bush, still smiling, added nothing.”
Bush and Gore met for 40-minutes, although Whitehouse spokesmen declined to comment what the meeting was about. Gore, however, disclosed that the entire meeting was devoted to the topic of global warming. OOoooo.
Call me crazy, but I don’t think Gore and Bush saved the planet in one 40-minute session.
So those of you worried about rising sea water taking over your backyard– there’s no need to worry. George booked almost a FULL HOUR in his day-planner to solve the problem! It’s getting cooler already.
