From Newsbusters: Pictures of Gore's new mansion...
GLENN: I'd like to do another rant here on Al Gore because I'm not as I said at the beginning of the show, I'm not really in a good mood. I don't know if you've I'm going to the Time 100 tonight where they do the Time 100 most influential people in the world and they are all socialists and Marxists and then me, Sarah Palin and a tea partygoer and General McChrystal. That's it. So it's going to be and I'm going to this black tie event tonight and I it's not putting me in a good mood. I'm going to bring a pack of cards and I'm sitting at the table. If they happen to seat me with Sarah Palin, I'm going to convince her to play gin because I can't drink gin. So I'll play gin while all these socialists are talking about how to unite the world or global government and blotty, blotty, blotty. You think that would be rude? Anyway, I just want to point out Al Gore's $9 million house. How many houses does this fat man need? Seriously. How many does he need? I mean, I think the president just said you can make too much money. Did you see the
PAT: Yeah, because there's a certain point where, you know, enough's enough.
GLENN: You make too much money. Did you see the break I did last night on television? I loved it. Not a single word. I didn't say one word. I just wrote on the chalkboard for about 3 1/2 minutes. Just put all the salaries and all the estimated wealth of all of Obama's good friends and, yeah, I'm just wondering why I'm just wondering why he doesn't ask his friends to set the example. Here he is, Al Gore, saying that we need to have a smaller carbon footprint. How big is this $9 million home?
PAT: I can't find the square footage, but
PAT: It's gigantic. You know, from the air it looks to be it's got to be 15,000, 20,000 square feet.
GLENN: Could you do me a favor, include the link in today's Insider newsletter. You can sign up for it for free at GlennBeck.com.
GLENN: And I just want to ask you this. Find out for me if you can Google Earth and find out how far it is from the beach and find out what the elevation is. Because if I'm a guy who says if global warming's not stopped and we might not be able to stop it at this point and it's going to cause the sea to rise 20 feet, the last piece of property I buy for $9 million is by the beach.
PAT: Yeah, you would think Iowa, you know.
STU: Yeah, a very specific point. I think it was in An Inconvenient Book of showing Florida as it was flooded with all the celebrities' houses that supposedly
GLENN: Could you get somebody to show me how, if his house is going to be flooded, could you get somebody to do that graphic for me? Find that out for me, will you?
STU: That's great, yes.
GLENN: And then here's the other thing. And I'd like to do this maybe tomorrow because today's show is completely full. But maybe tomorrow when we talk about this, if you can get that map for me, let's also show who the people are that are now saying that they want the federal government to give people insurance, to be the insurer of last resort for ocean front property. Because people can't afford their insurance on ocean front property. Then sell the damn house. Then sell the house. You are not guaranteed a right to live on the beach. It's a privilege, not a right. The reason why the insurance companies don't insure those houses is because they are wiped out by storms. Why should I as a taxpayer have to subsidize somebody's house because they can't get insurance because it's too expensive? Why should I and you? Why should we be as the taxpayers the insurer of last resort for people who are living on the beach. What the hell has happened to our country?
