AL Gore smear
From crooksandliars.com

Gore and Drudge
Matt Drudge removed from his web site an apparently false story about Al Gore being hypocritically unfriendly to the environment after a blogger called him on it.

    Funny: There are lots of FISA statutes that you don’t have to read particularly carefully to learn that spying on Americans without warrants is illegal.
