Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

After the shock of the brilliant orator’s embarrassing defeat wore off, the left has stumbled back to their feet to offer excuses. He underestimated, he was tired, it was Jim Lehrer’s fault and on and on. But the most unbelievable excuse of the night came from Al Gore, who blamed the altitude.

“One of the greatest pieces of audio you’ll ever, ever, ever hear. This is going to go down in the world record books as the quintessential excuse,” Glenn said.

“I’m going to say something controversial here,” Gore said. “Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today – just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust – I don’t know…”

Glenn, Stu and Pat could not believe that a news host, much less someone who was nearly President of the United States, would use altitude sickness as an excuse.

“Can we just stop and think about for a second that this man was 537 votes from being President of the United States,” Stu said.
