That is precisely the question that the Washington Times is asking at the end of this piece:
Rumors of former Vice President Al Gore’s extramarital affairs have been whispered in D.C. for many years, but fondness for Tipper and loyalty to Gore has protected him. So, the public has been shocked – with many still in denial – by tabloid reports of his infidelities.
The National Enquirer, which gained respect from its breaking the news of John Edwards’ cheating, reported that the Gore divorce was caused by Tipper’s jealousy over other women including “an environmentalist named to a prominent cabinet position by Gore when he was vice president, a sexy Hollywood actress, a gorgeous massage therapist” and “a Tennessee Titans cheerleader.”
Now, it should of course be noted that there is no proof that the Cubslayer has left carbon footprints at any of those habitats. Yet. But if you don’t think that the National Enquirer – still smarting over their completely unjustified passing over for a Pulitzer Prize for their John Edwards reporting – isn’t doing its level best to rectify that gap in the fossil record, you don’t know tabloid journalism very well. Meanwhile, I’m waiting to see what Deceiver.com has to say on the subject: based on past reactions, I presume that it’ll be epic.
PS: As Emily Miller notes in the Washington Times article above; if this was going on while Al Gore was Vice President, then there was possibly federal money being dedicated to helping the man experience biodiversity. Which is, ah, kind of illegal.
