[Background sound of phone dial-up and modem] Al Gore (video clip): I took the initiative in creating the Internet.

Male Announcer: Reality check.  The Internet was created in 1969 by the Pentagon.

Gore said: I lived on a farm.  My father taught me how to take up hay all day long in the hot sun.

Well, not quite.  Gore grew up in the top floor suite of a luxury hotel in Washington, DC.

Gore also said: I undertook the task to reinvent the federal government.

Yeah right.  

Earth to Gore: Stop trying to reinvent reality.
