When Al announced the selection of Joe Lieberman, he admits that Joe started quoting a verse from the Bible, and then Al finished the quote.

Al states, "It was a verse of thanksgiving. I think from the book of Prophets or Psalms, from the old testament." [i]Quote from August 21st issue of Newsweek.[/i]

Al is playing the media like a harp. If Dan Quayle had made this statement a decade ago, the press would have had a field day.

Let's rip this statement apart:

#1. Yes, Al, it is a quote from the Old Testament. Since Joe is Jewish he studies only the first five books of the Bible - known as the Pentateuch. Good guess, Mr. Genius. For someone that can quote scripture, you don't seem very well versed, [b]pun intended[/b], in the scripture's structure.

#2. Psalms is not in the Pentatuech, so I sincerely doubt that Joe was quoting that particular book.

#3. The Prophets is not a book in the Bible, per se. There are several prophets studied by the Jewish faith, but no book with that particular name in the Bible. Perhaps you meant "Proverbs", but if so you are still wrong.

Al, if you are going to construct loving Christian moments for the media with your wife and running mate, at least do ALL of your homework.

You're absolutely right about the media, Russ. They'll sugarcoat or ignore every assinine statement this guy ever makes.

I guess Al was too busy inventing the internet to study up on his scripture.

I must confess my level of biblical knowledge is probably about as lame as Al's - I could probably quote the 23rd Psalm and know most of the Commandments, but that's about it. Of course, not being a lying weasel, I'll admit to MY lack of knowledge.

Too bad we can't defect from the media....

Meanwhile Russ, the press is ripping George W over every single slip up, ala Dan Quayle. As a famous radio personality recently said, the press isn't even trying to prented to be fair.

More sickening than the kiss was the number of women who called in and said they are supporting Algore on the basis of that contrived kiss. I found it quite disturbing actually. I mean if Algore is your guy, fine, it's a free country. But to support him because of a kiss that was quite possibly and probably staged?

gh - The crew that was present for the kiss, were the same ones that took the 'totally unrehearsed' [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif[/img] picture of the dance in the moonlight between Bill and Hillary on the beach a few years ago.... The dance occurred around the same time Bill was getting hummed under the oval office desk.

How coincidental.

So Gore doesn't know the Bible. Big Deal IMO! I am not voting for an elected official based on his/her knowledge of the bible.

At least he didn't fail a political quiz about foreign leaders like your man Bush did.

And that is scary considering the man has already stated that he opposes a nuclear test ban treaty. He wants to let anyone and everyone test nuclear weapons and he doesn’t even [b]KNOW[/b] or care who does it.

If he does get in, I hope the man chooses a great cabinet. He’s gonna need the help. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/redface.gif[/img]

Cannibal - George W. never pretended to know world leaders. He didn't have his press monkeys make up a lie about world leaders, and he chose a running mate to make up for that deficit.

Gore lied about this (obviously) and didn't even lie well....

Again, if this was Dan Quayle, do you believe the press would have let him off the hook with the faux pas?

Cannibal - BTW, those limited bans didn't stop the East Indians or the Pakistani's from testing. Nor did it stop Hussein's exploration and attempt to build them as well.

What is the purpose of the ban and how do you enforce it?

I don't think it's the fact that Algore made the goof about the bible that is the point Jeff. It's the fact that he can do it, and it's no big deal, but let Bush do the same thing, make some kind of silly gaffe that is, and the press is all over it, questioning his intelligence.

If someone's intelligence is going to be questioned because they occasionally mispeak, then I'd venture to say we're all morons, because it happens to all of us.

GH - It was more than a goof, it was an out and out lie, and the press deliberately overlooked it.<BR>

The man is probably going to be president of the United States of America. He [b]SHOULD[/b] know the names of the World Leaders that he's going to be dealing with. I guess he's going to wait and get on the job training from his cabinet.

Maybe his father can teach him a thing or two about blowing chunks all over those world leaders when he meets them. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img]<BR>
