End of a Love Story

After 40 years, Albert and Tipper Gore have separated.

Their romance, once rumored to have been the inspiration behind Erich Segal's novel (and movie) Love Story, was ended through "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

According to friends, the Gores simply "grew apart" during the last few years.

There was no affair.

We will always be left to wonder how much of a factor Al Gore's maniacal obsession with global warming, or his serious efforts to massively profit from "green" energy, were in the emotional distance that apparently developed between them.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Gore family.

Dodo David:

Al Gore may not have a human mistress, but if his work became more important to him than his marriage, then his work became his mistress. [I am merely speculating.] Still, what has happened to his marriage is saddening. I wish him and Tipper well.

Tim:

Larry David's wife devoted so much time to her pet environmental casues that it broke up their marriage, so that could have happened here. I can't stand AlGore, still, it's too bad. 40 years is a long time. I hope it remains civil, for all parties' sakes.

Upset Old Guy:

However civil any divorce and settlement remains will depend on Fat Al's willingness to be indulgent of Tipper in that settlement. If he tries to cheap-out on her, or if she even thinks he's trying, the tabloids will be reporting details that will begin to flow.

I don't know or give a crap about either one of them, so I will expend no more time or energy over this now.

My parting wish is that Tipper gets significantly more than 50% and Fat Al gets an ulcer from all the stress associated with the settlement. It's the least he deserves.

I was thinking more along the lines of 914. Tip probably feels he has reached his potential amount of wealth and is ready to cash in before the rest of his AGW world falls apart.

kevino:

That's too bad. I wonder if there was enough room in their various mansions for Al Gore and his ego.

As Satan said to the lawyer in Devil's Advocate:

Vanity ... is definitely my favorite sin. ... It's so basic. Self-love. The all-natural opiate. It's not that you didn't care ... It's just that you were a little more involved with someone else.

Yourself.

Upset Old Guy:

Jay,

When Clinton announced Gore as his running mate I didn't know what to think. Then I saw a picture of Bill and Hillary on stage with Al and Tipper, Tipper in profile. At that moment I understood Clinton's choice. How should I put this? Ok, try this, Tipper was a bit top-heavy.

GarandFan:

My wife suggested that Tipper finally got tired of Al's "performance issues" excuses at night; you can blame global warming on only so much.

Al & Tipper are splitting the empire and diversifying into smaller corporations to lessen the tax barden.

Well thanks a lot for planting that horrible image in my mind!

Then again, I'm sure they had enormous showers at the Gore Global Warming Mansion so they both might have fit. Maybe.

Tipper Gore announce... (Below threshold)
Mike Lorrey:


Tipper Gore announced today an amicable divorce from her husband of 40 years, former Vice President Al Gore, aka the Goreacle, due to irreconcilable differences. Specifically, she grew tired of him spending most of his time travelling in his obsessive search for ManBearPig and his campaign to alert the world to the risks of ManBearPig on the loose.

"ManBearPig REALLY REALLY exists!" the former VP insisted, "I'm thuper thuper cereal!"

Tipper grew more concerned about the impact of her husbands obsession as she became more involved with promoting public awareness of mental health issues. Tipper is seeking to have ManBearPig Psychosis declared an official mental disorder.

There is no word on whether she will keep the solar panels on her 9,000 square foot Tennessee mansion. Al will get the swank new Malibu beachfront home they recently purchased, where he hopes to live in an undersea paradise in the near future as rising sea levels put his property under water....

They remain divided over the Gulfstream business jet, with Al attempting to split it so he gets the jet and she gets the carbon footprint.

Tipper insisted there were no affairs involved in the split, "I know the only women Al spends time with are those tree hugging crunchies who don't shave or use deodorant, so I'm not concerned about anything there."

There remains some discussion over who gets custody of the internet....

914:

Why couldn't they just live in separate ends of the Mansion? I mean its big enough that they'd never have to see each others ugly kissers more than once a year when they attend a Hollywood gala or maybe get introduced to a new crew of maids and butlers, grounds keepers, chauffeurs you know the normal everyday hassles.

Matter of fact, I wonder how much the job pays? Might be worth it to stuff your portfolio with energy funds and cowmeth bio-gas futures.

Prairie:

Al was in Chicago a month or so back and gave a speech that a friend of mine attended. One of the things she noticed (and thought was very funny) is that his suit didn't fit him.
High water pants as she described.

I wonder how many jigsaw puzzles Tipper did near the gigantic fireplace. I imagine the dining room table got larger and larger as the years went by. How lonely Xanadu can be for an old, rich, abandoned has-been with a failed political career and delusions of grandeur. I hope they don't burn Rosebud when he eventually departs. Sled smoke contains carbon!
