I’ve heard the tired saw that Al Gore claimed he invented the Internet too many times, and heard it debunked almost as often. Greg points to (and quotes some lengthy excerpts from) an article at the Daily Howler providing a definitive debunking.
(Oh, and Greg, I think I’ve been reading too many warbloggers. After following the reaction to Doc’s statements yesterday, including Doc’s own follow-up, I had a dream last night that I got a righteous fisking for saying I wouldn’t stay silent about the war. I’m not even sure I know what a fisking is. Except that it has nothing to do with Ian. (Small inside joke.))
