Oh, Al, you coy bitch, just run already

Hope you’ve seen this cover story in Time about Al Gore. Money quote from me: “If he ran, there’s no question in my mind that he would be elected. But I think there’s a question in his mind, perhaps because the pain of the last election runs a lot deeper than he lets most of us see.”

Al, the whole Valley is holding out for you. We hate Hillary. Obama refuses to kiss our ass and tell us how smart and important we are. Edwards is too smarmy, and he reminds us of all the scumbag class-action lawyers who shake us down with shareholder suits every time our stocks drop a few bucks. We won’t vote for a Republican. Period.

Al, we need you. And you know you’re going to do it, no matter what Tipper tells you. So quit friggin around and announce, for Christ’s sake.
