Gore’s Revisionism

George Will has a nice article today dissecting Gore’s historical revisionism regarding the 2000 election. He does a particular service in taking the wind out of the "selected, not elected" chant of the Democrats by noting that under Gore’s theory, he would have been selected by the Florida Supreme Court, who unlike the U.S. Supreme Court had ignored the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

I wrote about this ad nauseum at the time, and have attempted to move on. But Gore can’t move on, and thus we have to continue revisiting the same facts--facts which Gore and his devotees continue to reject. This cognitive disconnect and resentment seems to be the driving force in his run in 2004--and will likely be his political undoing once again.
