    I really hope she's now dating the singer from The Mentors.

    Didn't she have some pretty serious medical issues? I expect since they are still married she is still covered to an extent under his benefits, which are probably substantial considering his time in the Senate and two terms at the Veep. Pretty good reason to stay married, if both parties can live with it.

    That's a perfect description of how I imagine the Gores getting freaky. I picture Jimmy Stewart going, "Oh, Mary, oh, mary."

    I don't know what medical problems she has, but the two of them have to be worth several hundred million dollars. I doubt a health insurance consideration accounts for why they don't get a formal divorce.

    The royalty checks from inventing the internet have to be pretty spectacular.

    Yup. He cashes them and then puts the money in a lock box. A lock box.

    I don't agree with Snopes here:

    What Gore actually said:

    I think a "reasonable interpretation" is exactly the kind of jokes we've been hearing for almost two decades.

    I laughed in 2000 just like everybody else, but damn if in 2008 I didn't wish Al had gotten that lock box built.

    It doesn't matter much. I always took it as more of a joke about his self importance, as a lot of people perceived it, as it was about what he literally said.

    Most failed Presidential candidates get one joke about them. Al got inventing the internet, the lock box AND Manbearpig. What a legacy.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    But do you like paying more for anything when you don't have to? I'm sure his government health-care plan is far, far cheaper than anything that can be found on the open market for a single 70-year-old women who has already had thyroid surgery.
