I thought that one about the environment was from Dan Quayle, not Al Gore.

Anyway...these quotes...

This reminds me of when they wanted to changed the name of the "Washington Bullets" (the NBA team) because the name was "too violent".

It was suggested that "The Bullets" would be a much less violent name.

The one about the environment is Dan Quayle although sometimes people wrongly attribute it to Bush...guess it's easy to confuse one dumb guy with another. (J/K guys)
