Shame on Brookings for passing on Al Gore's uncivil remarks, without condemnation.
As you know, Vice President Al Gore and the Republic survived a shutdown in the Clinton administration very nicely. There were shutdowns in the Carter administration, as well. It is called the congressional power of the purse.
After reading this email, I no longer have confidence in Brookings' rationality, nor its commitment to civil political discourse.
Therefore, I do not wish to receive any further materials by email from Brookings.
So, please remove me from all your email distribution lists, asap.
And please do tell Al Gore he's tarnished your reputation with at least one recipient.
If you ever condemn him, I'll subscribe again.
