    Al and Tipper Gore separating after 40 years of marriage

    Al and Tipper Gore separating after 40 years of marriage

    After forty years of marriage, Al and Tipper Gore are separating, the couple announced in an e-mail to friends Tuesday morning.

    "This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration," the former vice president and his wife said in the email first reported by Politico. "We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further." Gore's spokeswoman later confirmed the validity of the e-mail.

    The news stunned many political watchers -- the duo's mutually affectionate manner on the campaign trail did much to enliven Al Gore's stuffy image -- but also good friends.

    "I'm shocked -- beyond shocked," said Chris Downey, a close friend for many years who said she spoke to Tipper last week. "This is the least likely course of events I could imagine."

    Since Al Gore's bitter loss of the 2000 presidential race, the couple has made their home in his home state of Tennessee. Al, now 62, has spent the past few years travelling extensively as an environmental advocate. He won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in 2007, and a documentary about his warnings on global warning won an Academy Award the same year. Tipper, 61, became famous in the 1980s for her protests of vulgar and sexually-explicit language in pop music. In later years, though, she turned her advocacy focus to mental health issues. A lifelong photographer who often showed up at official events with a camera in her hand, she more recently began selling her work, with proceeds going to her husband's Climate Project.

    The Los Angeles Times reported last month that the couple bought an $8.8 million home in Montecito, Calif., this spring.

    They met in high school -- she attended the Alexandria school that is now St. Stephen's and St. Agnes, while he went to St. Alban's -- and wed in May 1970 at Washington National Cathedral. They have four grown children -- Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Albert -- and three grandchildrenhttp://voices.washingtonpost.com/reliable-source/2010/06/al_and_tipper_gore_separating.html?hpid=artslot

    So, what's the girlfriend's name? I'm sure it won't be long until Al will start to be seen with a seriously attractive younger woman. Guaranteed.

    Maybe her conscience could no longer handle pushing the fantasy that global warming is man made and using it as an excuse for taxes and a lower standard of living for the masses.

    Dumb comment - not everything has to be political, but I guess you just couldn't help it.

    It's their personal business. Why do folks have to stick their noses into the decision of 2 consenting senior citizens.

    They are hardly "publicity shy" themselves are they?

    Al professes to have invented the Internet, and his pushy missus got those big stickers (Advisory Warning thingies) all over your favourite albums. Amongst other things.

    I'm hoping this turns out extremely messy for both of them..

    I just read a news article which stated that Al once claimed that he and Tipper's romance was the actual basis for that insipid '70's movie "Love Story". First he invents the internet, and now he's Ryan O'Neil. And Tipper is that HORRIBLE ACTRESS Ali whatever.

    Al Gore Pleaded With Masseuse to “Release His Second Chakra”
    Al Gore’s second chakra was bursting full of green energy.



    After a long day’s work, the junk scientist needed some hot second chakra action.
    Byron York at The Washington Examiner reported, via Ace:
    The police report of the masseuse’s complaint is 73 pages long and extremely detailed. According to the document, she got a call from the front desk of the trendy Hotel Lucia on the night of Oct. 24, 2006. The hotel had a special guest. Could she come at 10:30 p.m.?
    She went to Gore’s room carrying a folding massage table and other equipment. Gore, whom she had never met, greeted her with a warm embrace. “The hug went on a bit long, and I was taken just a bit aback by it,” the masseuse told police. But she went along because Gore “was a VIP and a powerful individual and the Hotel Lucia had made it clear to me by inference that they were giving him ‘the royal treatment.’”
    Gore said he was tired from travel and described in detail the massage he wanted. It included work on the adductor muscles, which are on the inside of the thighs. “I mentally noted that a request for adductor work is a bit unusual,” the masseuse told police, because it can be “a precursor to inappropriate behavior by a male client.”
    Gore also requested work on his abdomen. When that began, “He became somewhat vocal with muffled moans, etc.,” the masseuse recounted. Gore then “demand[ed] that I go lower.” When she remained focused on a “safe, nonsexual” area, Gore grew “angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud.”
    The masseuse asked Gore what he wanted. “He grabbed my right hand, shoved it down under the sheet to his pubic hair area, my fingers brushing against his penis,” she recalled, “and said to me, ‘There!’ in a very sharp, loud, angry-sounding tone.” When she pulled back, Gore “angrily raged” and “bellowed” at her.
    Then, abruptly, the former vice president changed tone. It was “as though he had very suddenly switched personalities,” she recalled, “and began in a pleading tone, pleading for release of his second chakra there.”
    Let’s be honest… We’ve all yearned for a little second Chakra release action at one time or another?

    I guess we know now why Al & Tipper are getting a divorce. Tipper wouldn't give him a Chakra Release!
