Sam Davidson takes issue with An Inconvenient Truth director David Guggenheim's comparison of Al Gore to action hero Jack Bauer. Sam's right. We 24 fans know Jack Bauer. Jack Bauer is our friend. Senator, Al Gore is no Jack Bauer.
But he does believe in something passionately. He will not be bullied into silence about something that he believes affects the health of so many people. Jack Bauer uses his gun to get his point across. Al Gore just uses constant and insistent in-your-face confrontation. That is why I think the Jack Bauer comparison is all wrong. Al Gore is really our Erin Brockovich. Except that he doesn't use his cleavage to get attention. Thank God for that. Thank God.
