With his party in such a dire mess right now, you'd think that The Goracle would step in and try to clean up some of the slime, but no such luck, esp. when there's more cheddar to pocket from all the suckers out there:
Al Gore’s plan to hold a $100 million initial public offering for his cable company Current Media is generating some heat in BusinessWeek.
In a column published Thursday on the Web, Ron Grover, BusinessWeek’s Los Angeles bureau chief, recites a list of problems he has with the public offering — including how it would enrich the former Democratic vice-president.
The magazine estimates that Mr. Gore will pocket $48 million from the stock offering of Current Media, which has lost $31.5 million over the last three years. In addition, Mr. Gore and his business partner, Current Media’s chief executive, Joel Hyatt, will have “hammer-lock” control over the company in the form of a special class of shares that they will hold.
Mr. Grover notes that the two partners earned $491,677 apiece last year in cash, plus bonuses of $550,000 each. The two currently receive $600,000 a year in salary and are eligible for additional bonuses, according to the I.P.O. filing.
Mr. Grover compares that with the salaries of Google’s founders at the time of the company’s I.P.O. in 2004: The two earned a total of $356,556 in salary and bonuses for heading up a company that had earned nearly $106 million the year before.
But what really sticks in Mr. Grover’s craw is the share class structure the company will have following the offering. And apparently, Mr. Grover’s not alone in his opinion.
“That’s hardly democratic—with a large D or a small d,” a University of Delaware corporate governance expert, Charles Elson, told Mr. Grover. “The irony is that this is coming from a Democratic leader.”

Team Billary, the double-horned monster that Black liberals have worshipped for two decades now, continue to show what they really think of y'alls support:
THE camp of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton camp has been accused of deliberately darkening the skin of opponent Barack Obama in a new ad.
The controversial footage has been compared to images shot of Senator Obama during a debate in Cleveland last week - with critics claiming a screen grab used in the Clinton ad had been altered to highlight his race.
A posting on the liberal website DailyKos shows the two images side by side.
Despite the strong similarities between the ad on the DailyKos site and the original ad on Senator Clinton's website, Clinton spokesman Jay Carson distanced the team from the controversy.
He said on Fox News that he had spoken with the campaigns chief ad-maker, Mandy Grunwald, who emphatically denied the ad on DailyKos was theirs.
"We don't know what is up there, but it is not our ad," Mr Carson said.
Yeah, ok . . . but what difference would it make to Black libs anyway, who've long been spoon-fed on who'll pat them on the head and take care of their needs come election time? No matter how many times Billary pulls divisive, racial stunts like this, Black libs say little and do nothing. And what with Hispanic voters making themselves heard loud and clear in Texas the other day, is there any reason to believe that this nonsense from the Billary camp will stop? Of course not. There's a bigger minority voting bloc in town and it ain't the black people.

Sen. Hillary Clinton got her campaign back on track with projected wins in the Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island primaries.Personally, I blame "Saturday Night Live" too for playing right into Billary's delusions of media bias. Of course, "SNL" hasn't been politically significant for years, but the show is based in NYC and we all know that Billary has had NYC'ers in their back pockets for almost two decades now.
Delegate-rich Texas and Ohio were considered must-wins for her campaign.
Obama, who claimed victory in Vermont, had won 12 straight contests since Super Tuesday on February 5.
Texas also held Democratic caucuses Tuesday, but it was too close to declare a winner.
"For everyone here in Ohio and across America who's been ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, for everyone who has stumbled but stood right back up, and for everyone who works hard and never gives up -- this one is for you," Clinton said before supporters in Columbus."You know what they say," she said. "As Ohio goes, so goes the nation. Well, this nation's coming back and so is this campaign."

Hillary could be on the brink, so leave it to feminist "icon" Gloria Steinem to come out, play the "victim" card and even go so far as to diss John McCain's war record:
WASHINGTON - One of Hillary Rodham Clinton's best-known supporters, feminist author Gloria Steinem, belittled John McCain's ordeal as a prisoner of war and the torture he endured as a captured Navy airman.
"I mean, hello?" Steinem told a Texas crowd Saturday night as she was discussing McCain's captivity by the Viet Cong.
"This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don't think so," The New York Observer quoted her as saying.
The red-faced Clinton campaign quickly denounced Steinem's remarks.
"Senator Clinton has repeatedly praised Senator McCain's courage and service to our country," campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson said.
McCain senior adviser Mark Salter said that the Republican's 51/2 years in captivity indeed made him more qualified to be commander-in-chief.
"Would you put your country before your own life? Check. Can you perform under great stress? Check. Does it test your courage? Check," Salter said.
Steinem's slap at McCain's service in Vietnam came during a "Women for Hillary" campaign event in Austin on Sunday night.
Billary's campaign denounced Steinem's despicable remarks, but not Hillary herself and this the man she could be facing for President of the United States come November. You'll recall that this isn't the first time that Steinem has made moronic comments in support of Hillary during this campaign. The question is will it backfire? As Hillary continues to whine about supposed media bias, "experience", Obama mailers, Texas caucuses and who has to answer the question first in debates, it's her friends in the loon wing that could come back to haunt her the most. Steinem's brand of feminism not only plays the victim card, but it concentrates on results, not rights, progressive ideology at it's most divisive. In 2008 most of the country can recognize Steinem for the bullshit artist she is.
