Al Gore

Al Gore is on this week's cover of Entertainment Weekly. He's had quite a run in the past two years. Last year, he launched his own TV station Current, and this summer, his movie An inconvenient Truth has earned critical acclaim.

I admit, I enjoyed the movie - but how the hell has a guy who is most famous for losing somehow managed to remain relevant? It's pretty rare. I haven't seen Walter Mondale on the cover of anything in the past 30 years. Gore has indeed transformed himself into The Master of Losers - and if he doesn't run for President in '08, he should coach the Knicks.

Speaking of transformation - is that even Al Gore on the cover? I had no idea he was part Asian. He kinda looks like a cross between Steven Segal and that Malan guy on Project Runway 3.

For some reason he kind of reminds me of a middle-aged Darth Vader in that photo.

He looks every bit as terrifying as he actually is.
