Now, that "old-fashioned, romantic innocence" has withered away. According to the 73-page police report by a Portland, Ore., masseuse, Gore is not only an attempted adulterer, he's a "crazed sex poodle." And if any of what is laid forth in the report is true, he's also exceptionally weird.I haven't seen a ton of writing on the Al Gore story, perhaps because most Conservatives are a bit leery of writing that particular phrase - the one where they have to admit that this story may be total bullshit. Doesn't stop young Ben though. He's happy to write his whole article, castigating Gore, praising this masseuse, and complaining that the Media is ignoring this very important story.
In related news, Salon's War Room reported that the Portland Tribune tried for three years to verify this story and couldn't. They apparently went so far as to place an ad on Craig's List, looking for masseuses who might have had a bad experience with a prominent person. So maybe they did look at this story, and, not wanting to admit that it was all heresy, decided to drop it.
So given that the story is unverified and nonsensical why does young Ben want to believe it? Because it fits the narrative that he believes in. All Liberals are hypocritical scumbags.
When the masseuse told her friends that she'd been sexually assaulted by the horny horned-owl hero, they answered her in typical liberal fashion: "suck it up; otherwise, the world's going to be destroyed from global warming."That right there shows that Shapiros hated and disdain for liberals has blinded him to reality. What kind of person would really excuse rape for environmental concerns? Well in Shapiro's mind, that's what a Liberal would do. In my mind, that wouldn't actually happen; it reads like a parody. If further confirmation of this masseuses story come forth, well, we'll have to deal with that. But for the moment it's not that believable.
You have to love people who are so stupid that they think Al Gore's blustering blather about saving the planet means he gets to rape anybody he pleases.
