While it's certainly a shame for the family (and frankly, I'd rather not examine stupid choices made by 20 year olds, because truly, how many of us would hold up to the scrutiny?), the thing that will be more interesting to me is how much airtime the complicit media will give to this story that they didn't give to Noelle Bush or Jenna and Barbara's antics. Not in a Republican "...they did it too" kind of way, but just why Gore's son would be any more newsworthy than a Bush daughter.
The good news for Al Gore was that when his son was stopped by the police yesterday morning he was driving an environmentally friendly car, a hybrid Toyota Prius. The bad news was that Al Gore Jr was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis and drugs for which he apparently had no prescription.
