    Great clip! Hastert was trying to paint Gore as the Hollywood Left with the portrait of “movie star”. Gore’s reply “Rin Tin Tin was a movie star, I’m just a guy with a slide show” Perfect! Go home Dennis. The party’s over for you.

  3. Monty says:

    Inhofe’s attempt to put Gore down was “grade school” tactics. Inhofe attacked Gore for being excessive in his personal household energy consumption which has nothing to do with proving or disproving human caused global climate change which was the primary topic of the hearing. Inhofe appears to be full of anger & a “block head” to boot.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
