   That's an idea.  Do you suppose it might do something to electrify
the animated corpse of Al Gore?

   You know, when someone dies, the reactions in the muscles which
cause stiffness, aka rigor mortis, also give off some heat and you get
a little rise in temperature before it states to fall.  The little
known technical term for this phenomenon is "algor mortis."  You think
I'm kidding, but you can look it up if you want.  I propose therefore
that we have an official AlGore Mortis Society, dedicated to the study
of political corpses that are stiff but also still warm, and therefore
a source of confusion to the uneducated.  And we also need a new term,
perhaps viagra mortis, for political decedents who appear to be
properly their old cold selves, but not stiff.  Bob Dole, etc.
