Vice President Dick Cheney, speaking at a fundraiser in Dubuque Iowa, said in a response to a question about gloabal warming and the new Al Gore film, that Gore’s warnings should not be heeded because “Al Gore is fat, and nobody likes him.” This is reminiscent, for some, of the speech in 2003, when he told an audience that the American public would not heed then-candidate John Kerrey “because he’s a weaselly French water-skier.”

As with the time of the John Kerrey criticism, Cheney was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital for a neurological work-up, and to examine for any recurrence of his brain anneurysm.
