If Al Gore Can Win an Emmy & an Oscar, Why Can’t he Win a Presidency? Also, Sally Fields at the Emmys


Former Vice President Al Gore has now won an Emmy and an Oscar. So why can’t Al “An Inconvenient Truth” Gore win the US Presidency? Maybe a better question is, why doesn’t he even try?

Former Vice President Al Gore took home an Emmy Sunday night for creative achievement in interactive television for Current TV, his youth-oriented television channel. “We are trying to open up the television medium so that viewers can help them make television and join the conversation of democracy and reclaim American democracy by talking about the choices we have to make,” Gore said as he accepted the award.

If Al Gore’s greatest platform and cause celeb is global warming and he really wanted to make some type of real inroads into a perceived problem that he so believes in, why would he not run for the highest office in the land? Instead Al Gore just sits back and wants to receives statues. Complaining about a problem and blaming other does nothing, talk is cheap Al. If you really truly believed in your cause, you would run as a Democratic candidate for President of the United States. All else is just for your ego.

On some other EMMY comments, watch Sally Field’s fumble over her words and eventually get cut off for cursing at the event making a protest against the war. Sally, “shut up and act”! What one find most amazing when it comes to these actors trying to vent about a topic that they generally know so little about, is the fact that they can never do it in a common sense, rational statement. They are actor’s, are they not? Isn’t this what they are supposed to be good at, speech? These are the same people that make fun of George W. Bush’s mangling of the English language. GWB joking says English is his second language, what’s their excuse?

Why is it as well that Hollywood cannot make a war speech without cursing or taking the Lord’s name in vane? What a disgrace.

UPDATE I: Week Ratings for Emmys

Between people watching less and less TV, uninteresting programming and many not wanting to listen to actors pontificate about their beliefs, is it any wonder why ratings for “kudo casts” are down significantly.

The “Primetime Emmy Awards” on Fox drew the kudocast’s second smallest audience on record Sunday night, averaging 13.1 million viewers, according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen.

This year’s audience comes in well below the 16.2 million that NBC garnered for its late-August telecast a year ago and the 18.7 million that watched on CBS two years ago.

      Sally Fields, lol, that was great. What a moron.

      The answer is easy. For an Emmy and an Oscar you only have to win over Hollyweird. To win the presidency you have to get the majority of the country and believe it or not, that requires getting some people with sense to vote for you. Ain’t gonna happen Al, most of the country recognizes hypocrisy when they see it.

      It used to be that Hollywood was in the realm of entertainment, and that serious matters were in a totally different category.

      Now the news media, and apparently, increasingly, popular culture (judging from what is printed in newspapers and on Yahoo and other Internet sites) see little difference between the two areas.

      I very much fear that reality is going to intrude, and that we are heading for a sharp fall.
      Hope I’m wrong, but my sense of disaster if not doom has been mounting ever since early summer.

      I used to like Sally. Now she goes and pulls this crap.

      Like the article says, SHUT UP AND ACT!

      She was so much more likeable when she was riding around in that black Trans-Am with Burt Reynolds.

      Perhaps “Big Al” is smoking the same weed as his son!

    6. Stephen on September 17th, 2007 4:40 pm

      Yea, these Hollywood types think that just because they are United States citizens they have the right to voice their opinions…You don’t see your average Joe schmo spouting off his opinions on T.V. Real Americans know how to keep their mouths shut and let other people do their talking and thinking for them. It’s about time the television networks started censoring political view points that oppose their own. Sure, now that the Bush administration admits that humans are causing global warming it is ok to win an Emmy, but Gore does it for fame and fortune not for environmental awareness.

    7. Boida on September 17th, 2007 6:13 pm

      Stephen, you’re as much of an idiot as the people in Hollywood who spout their views. You are missing the point.

      Nobody’s saying that stars don’t have the right to an opinion. I’m saying that I don’t CARE about their opinion. Their political views aren’t what landed them in the spotlight. Certainly they have as much right as anyone else to have their own views, be activists, and even be outspoken. That doesn’t mean that I want to listen to it, and it sure as hell doesn’t mean I’m going to agree with it just because I appreciate the fact that they’re talented at their craft (in the case of Sally Field).

      Richard: I sense it too.

      Stephen: no problem with Hollywierd taking their time at the mic to express their points of view. The “problem” lies in them infiltrating “entertainment” with their nutroots points of view, attempting to disguise it. You wouldn’t want to go to a car lot to purchase a car and have the salesman rattle off his political beliefs – you expect him to do that on his time and his dime. I don’t want Sally Field, Barry Manalow (both who I admired as entertainers but now loathe for using the stage to express political opinions) or anyone else taking a show billed to be an awards ceremony and turning it into a political rally. I also quit watching a lot of TV shows that have infiltrated their politics into the show.

      Also notice that Hollyweird political speeh is done at inappropriate times. During appropriate times no one would listen. So they take their fame and admiration for their talent and use it as a bully pulpit to try to indoctrinate people.

      Tell me about it….reality is no longer part of many a person’s world these days. Hollywood IS their reality (or drugs, or music, or some “x-sport”).

      I can only imagine what is coming down the pipes, you know?


    10. Brenda on September 18th, 2007 8:31 am


      The Bush administration “admits” humans caused global warming? Did Sally say that? I wouldn’t know…I don’t waste my time watching TV. (Don’t even have cable at home.)

      Please edumacate yourself at the link below.



    11. Stephen on September 18th, 2007 10:04 am

      No, that was in response to the cheap shots taken at Al Gore. Ironically the Bush administration NOW acknowledges that there is a 90% chance humans are causing global warming.

      I don’t know what Sally Field said either, it was censored. From what I hear, it was anti-war.

      Also, conservative Republican Alan Greenspan admitted that the Iraq war is for oil. That should finally shut up the delusional sheep that believe the Iraq war has ANYTHING to do with ending terrorism or protecting OUR freedom…

    12. katablog.com on September 18th, 2007 8:20 pm

      #11 – I detest it when the MSM tells people someone said something and then these people go around repeating it as if it’s actually true. Here is what Greenspan DID say:

      “I was not saying that that’s the administration’s motive,” Greenspan said in an interview Saturday, “I’m just saying that if somebody asked me, ‘Are we fortunate in taking out Saddam?’ I would say it was essential.”

      He said that in his discussions with President Bush and Vice President Cheney, “I have never heard them basically say, ‘We’ve got to protect the oil supplies of the world,’ but that would have been my motive.”

    13. Stephen (aka Jim) on September 19th, 2007 9:13 am

      Here is what GREENSPAN DID SAY:

      “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil,”

      So, that should shut the people up that continuously say that our troops are over in Iraq to defend our freedom, etc.

      The MAJORITY of this country knows that the soldiers are over there to defend Iraq’s OIL.
