The Onion: Pantene Introduces New Behavioral Conditioner. B.F. Skinner would be proud.

There are a lot of reasons to hate Al Gore, but smearing him for saying he invented the internet isn't one of them. Starting with the fact that he never used the word invent.

"during my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet"

The problem, of course, was that Gore's claim was correct. As the Internet's scientific leaders attest, often heatedly, Gore recognized
the significance of the Internet very early, and took the initiative in doing the political work and articulating the public vision that made the Internet possible.

Wierd. According to Drudge, Gore has a history of being anti-gay.
