Al Gore at the DNC: "I'm going to be candid with you: I had hoped to be back here this week under different circumstances, running for re-election. But you know the old saying: You win some, you lose some. And then there's that little-known third category."

I'm sure that joke was carefully vetted by teams of speechwriters, but it still amuses me.  :-)

(Edit: in other DNC news, two civil-rights groups have filed federal lawsuits challenging the MBTA's random bag-search policy. They're scheduled for a hearing Tuesday.)

"MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said the bags aren't opened. Instead, they are run through a machine that detects if explosives are inside. Pesaturo said so far no one has objected to having their bags inspected."

Bull hockey. I was on the T on Sunday, and they were opening bags. (And I objected.)
