Yesterday afternoon at Netroots Nation in Providence, RI, I attempted to ask the embattled Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) about his campaign, specifically his record as the deciding vote for Obamacare. Ohio voters passed an amendment to their constitution outlawing the Democrats’ health care law by a wide margin in 2011…
Unfortunately, while the Senator stood and took questions from a number of progressive attendees, when I finally had an opening to ask my question, he refused.
“Senator, do you have a moment for a question?”
“Not for you,” he remarked, pointing at me, before rushing off with his assistant. I Tweeted about the exchange.
Later, Al Gore Tweeted in response “Awesome.” (See image above.)
He later deleted it, but not before I and others screencapped it.
This story got me thinking about Al Gore Tweets which led me to wonder what his ringtone might be.
No! Look over here Al. Oh, I see. You’ve got your eyes on that Civic Literacy Quiz. Better forget about taking that test Al — it’s a little late in your political life to be thinking about civics. Besides, you’ll bring the curve down with all of your Global Cooling/Warming/Climate Change knowledge. FYI, Obama likes it if you say Climate Change.
If Al doesn’t have a ringtone I think I found the perfect one for the “Crazed Sex Poodle” — a song by the late great Frank Zappa. Give it a listen and see if you agree.
