Get Ready For Winter — Al Gore’s Coming To Town

Al Gore is coming to Colorado to campaign for struggling incumbent Betsy Markey.  I predict that the visit will bring record lows, both for local temperatures and Markey’s polling.

All kidding aside, this seems like a tone-deaf move.  I suspect that Al Gore is barely less toxic to independents these days than President Obama.  Gore’s cap’n’trade energy tax proposal is hugely unpopular, his anthropogenic theory of global warming has taken some serious body blows with the revelation of data-manipulation scandals, and his recent personal problems are not particularly endearing. 

Moreover, 2010 is not a year to bring out the Democrat party leaders.  Indeed, Rep. Markey has been running against her own party all summer.  I think this is an endorsement she will regret.
