The big buzz in DC yesterday was that Al and Tipper Gore are calling it quits after 40 years of marriage.
Politico: Al and Tipper Gore, whose playful romance enlivened Washington and the campaign trail for a quarter century, have decided to separate after 40 years of marriage, the couple told friends Tuesday.
In an “Email from Al and Tipper Gore,” the couple said: “We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.
“This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”
Who knows why the pair is ending their long marriage now. According to one of the Gores’ friends, the evil George W. Bush is to blame:
Family friend Sally Quinn told CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson that Gore winning the popular vote for president but losing the electoral vote may have done the marriage irreparable harm.
“He’s obviously suffered a lot,” Quinn said. “He’ll never get over that and neither will she.”
Sorry, but I ain’t buying that one. If I had to venture a guess, I would say Tipper had enough of being married to the laughingstock of Climate Change. For Al Gore I sense midlife crisis. He already has the hot new bachelor pad, all he needs now is the hot new trophy wife.
According to my friend Nikki, she sees a hot new trophy husband! She might be on to something, have you seen Al Gore’s eyebrows lately?
