We all know that Al claims to have invented the Internet but did he also invent the ballot ?

Rick - I dont think he invented it. I heard he did a ballot and created a pregnant chad.

If the cover of Rolling Stone is any indication, that'd be one dimpled chad.

Didn't Al Gore coin the PHRASE "Internet?"

Al did nothing with the internet but recognize the potential and jump on the bandwagon early.

Bob Dole has the actual sound clip where Algo claims to have invented the internet. It's Bob Dole's startup .wav at the office so that Bob Dole can shake his head and laugh first thing every morning.

I wonder if Bush Sr. had to instruct Dubya on how to chop his coke with a razor blade, rather than attempting to snort a marble-sized chunk all at once?

Gore and Bush are both a couple of court jesters. They basically exist only to amuse the American pubilc with their wild 'n wacky antics.

I think Goron coined Information SuperHighway.... We all know how long that term lasted.

I don't know any quotes or details regarding this matter.

I do know that Gore was part of a group that thought what we now know as the internet may be a successful form of civilian communication.

Prior to its civilian use in the 80s or whenever, the internet, which wasn't much more than e-mail, was used by the Department of Defense.

I find it amussing that you folks, as objective as you seem you are, would ponder this matter , take a politician literally, which in itself is laughable, and think its a grounds to disprove the credibility of a Presidential candidate

CRP: Gore got involved, indirectly, with the National Science Foundation in 1988. According to this timeline, the Internet was pretty much already 'invented'.
