Al “I invented voice mail” Gore’s Lieberman snub
Via Betsy’s Page comes the “he said, she said” story behind how Al Gore failed to tell Joe Lieberman that he was endorsing Howard Dean. Karenna Gore Schiff describes how the former veep was trying to get Joe on the phone “the whole night.” Understandably, the Lieberman people see the story quite differently.
The Gore side sounds so phony. What, the Lieberman campaign doesn’t have answering machines, voice mail, cell phones, text messaging, fax machines, PDAs, BlackBerrys, or E-mail? No little pink pads reading “While you were out” lying about the campaign bus? Geez, the excuse is worse than the snub.
