The bad news is that Al Gore’s son appears to have a Paris Hilton-like driving problem. We’d have had examples of bad behavior from the First Family even if the Supreme Court hadn’t intervened in the 2000 election.
The good news is that Al Gore III at least learned something from his father. He was picked up for drug posession driving a hybrid Toyota Prius. He may have been endangering himself and other drivers on the road, but at least he was doing his bit for the environment.
If Kerry had pulled it out in 2004, the Presidential children would have been far more boring. Even a clothing malfunction at Cannes doesn’t compete with this or the Bush twins.
Update: From all the links to this post, it appears that conservative blogs have little understanding of snark, as well as low tolerance for knocking the Bush twins. In contrast to what a number of conservative blogs claim, this post criticizes Gore’s son for “endangering himself and other drivers on the road” and the comment on him driving a hybrid is snark, not an excuse for him. Also in contrast to what is claimed on conservative blogs, this post does not address the question of whether Gore or Bush has children with greater problems. Both obviously do, and I wasn’t addressing the question of which kids are worse. While it does appear that Gore’s son’s problems are more severe, I wouldn’t discount the behavior of the Bush twins either as many conservative blogs have.
