Stuttgart, Germany/ Aviation Times - In a stunning reprisal of life imitating art, Democrat Actor Al Gore will be playing the rotund Hermann Goering in the remake of the WWI flying epic "The Blue Max". He will also be portraying a "flak balloon" in a cameo role.
The great epic depicting WWI aerial combat, formerly starring George Peppard, will be reprised thanks to a cinema grant recently awarded by Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez. Chavez, the darling of Hollywood airheads has distributed his financial largess among the Hollywood Ass Hole Contingent, known in Vanity Fair as the A- List, in order to curry favor and really piss off Republicans.
Gore, the Dooms Sayer of the Democratic Party, has seen his public persona decline in recent years, and has launched a comeback in the hopes of receiving a cabinet post from apparent new President Barack Hussein Obama.
In recent months "Tubby" and "Tipper" Gore have gotten more press face thanks to their Hollywood publicist, Gretta Grinch, who managed to secure a product spokesman contract for "Tubby" pushing solar powered dildos.
While the money isn't that great, Gore gushingly says the "residuals have been fabulous!" The loving, tongue kissing couple recently returned from a romantic interlude at Rep. Charles Wrangle's (sic) high priced love nest in the Dominican Republic, where wrist restraints and whips are lovingly accepted as "congressional perks."
Filming for the epic will take place over evergreen Flanders Field, and rehearsals have already begun. Gore said it has been a tight fit into the tri-wing Fokker he allegedly flies in the movie. "Remember, " he said, "Hermann and I were both thinner in our Salad Days!"
Goering and Gore's only similarities are their corpulent visage in their later years. Goering shot down 22 allied fighters in WW I, while Gore only managed to shoot himself in the foot during the 2000 Presidential election, but it turned out to be a fatal wound. Supreme Court doctors allowed the patient to expire on the operating room table while discussing treatment.
After the film? Gore is lobbying to be Secretary of Energy. Aides are negotiating now whether the post will be over, under, or behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
