Search Sleaze - Vote Gore.

Al Gore has today announced he's running for President and, in a horribly misguided attempt for popularity, he has asked some of Google's most searched for names to help him in the election.

Gore, who is perhaps best known for his cameo appearances on Futurama, said there is no such thing as bad press.

"It just makes sense..." explained Gore "The entire world is searching the Internet for these three people, I want the world searching for me, ergo I've associated myself with these three people."

When asked if he was worried about the message this alignment may send to voters, Al Gore started a very long-winded description of how it could benefit him and his political future, then he started up a Powerpoint presentation showing glaciers and Britney Spears and I fell asleep for awhile.

When I woke up I caught the end of this speech.

"Every time people look at photos of Antonella Barba, I want them to think of my smiling face.
Every time some late night internet surfer watches a video of Paris Hilton I want them to think about how my dynamic policies could save the world.

A search for a naked Britney - is a vote for Gore!"
