    I love politicians, even the retired ones.

    Al Jazeera did not disclose the purchase price, but people with direct knowledge of the deal pegged it at around $500 million, indicating a $100 million payout for Mr. Gore, who owned 20 percent of Current. Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1, according to several people who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

    I wish Brazzers would start a TV station. I'd watch the hell out of that network.

    I guess oil money isn't so evil when it's going into your pocket. So how much is that that the Goaracal has made off his fairy tale?
