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!

Jack: Church?

Al Gore did claim to invent the internet while he was in the Senate. The quote can be heard by downloading from Bearshare, Kazaa, Ares or pretty much any file sharing program.
Al Gore made a complete ass of himself and even managed to lose to Bush. Unreal.

A man who ISN'T and NEVER was President of the United States, contrary to popular belief by numerous liberals and other angry Democrats. This man is a total jackass, and we all know that he did NOT invent the internet.
Al Gore is a damned fool. He doesn't even truly represent his own state (Tennessee) either; he spent most of his life in a political atmosphere with his daddy in Washington!

Noun; One of the most well-known environmentalists in the world, but also one of the largest hypocrites in the history of America, though many of the public choose to ignore this. He also made a movie and grew a beard. Good job Mr. Gore!

Man who wants to prevent the ice caps from melting. Unfortunately, he's also full of hot air.
Al Gore is full of hot air but he cares about the melting ice caps.

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."
