The term Al Gore is taken from the actually person, Al Gore who was a former USA Vice-president, a USA Presidential Candidate and most recently produced An Inconvenient Truth (Documentary on Global Warming).

To use Al Gore as a term, it's mainly to indicate that someone who thinks they're going to win or have a chance doesn't actually. Just like Al Gore in the Presidential Election Race, he thought he had a chance but in reality, George W. Bush was never going to lose.

Katich: "Yeah what an Al Gore that was".
Langer: "South Africa are more like a John Kerry, than Al Gore, bloody chokers".

Just to clarify, he did not invent the internet. It was Tim Berners-Lee. TBL, born 1955, is currently a senior researcher and holder of the 3Com Founders Chair at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). He is also a Knight Commander (second-highest rank in the Order of the British Empire). Wiki him. While you're at it, look up Philo T. Farnsworth. He invented the television. These are good guys to know about.
Al Gore probably made that claim because he, like most people, does not know who actually invented the Internet. And continues to make sure it stays royalty-free. We (should) all owe him a lot. But he chose not to profit from it. Thanks Tim!

Shorthand for an e-mail joke, urban myth, web link or other oft-forwarded material that is so old and tired, it is likely one of the first things Al Gore put on the internet after he invented it.
"Hey Homes, check out this vid my grandma sent me. Some fat kid lip-syncing this whack song about numa numa. Is that funny or WHAT?!"

"I ain't studyin' that Al Gore shit, ese."

A politican who ran for president of the United States in 2000. He has never gotten over the fact that he lost, and will still make comments on the election, even though it has been a good 5+ years. He also has an obsession with global warming.
Al Gore has a new movie, called "An Inconvenient Truth", which, inconveniently, happens to be a movie filled with charts and graphs, and has no entertainment value.
