VERY interesting remark

I found the following in the comment section to a post over on Truthdig:

Al Gore, when asked why he was getting out of politics, said, “What politics has become requires a level of triviality and artifice and nonsense that I find I have in short supply.”

I wish I had a reference for this so that I could verify it. I had not come across it before. Well, whether Al Gore really said this or not, the statement sums up the reality of our body politic all too well. And it certainly bears pondering.
