In a snide comment about Al Gore's new book, Tony Snow said this today: “I don’t know if they’re going to do a reprinting of the book to try to get the facts straight. The fact-checkers may have to take a look at it.”
Ahem. Oh, the irony. Oh, what an easy pitch.
This afternoon in a blogger call with former Vice President Al Gore, he didn't miss a beat responding.
"This book, unlike the President's State of the Union Address, has been fact-checked." - Vice President Al Gore
Score one for Gore.Howie P.S.: John Zogby says
But the path is not cleared for a Gore run and he still faces a major obstacle: almost four in five Democratic primary and caucus voters in early states -- as well as nationally -- tell us that they are satisfied with the crop of candidates out there already. And the Big Three -- Clinton, Obama, and Edwards -- are almost each receiving that share. My latest poll in new Hampshire has Richardson at 10 percent. So in order for it to make sense for Gore to to enter the fray, one (or even two) of the top three are going to have to decline in the polls or drop out by September.
