BREAKING: Al & Tipper Gore Split After 40 Years

AlGoreTipperKiss3Say it ain't so! (Also, can we all agree that pictured kiss is only slightly less awkward than Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley?)

Well, I can yell "Say it ain't so!" as much as I want, but it is, in fact, SO.  AP News has reported that Al Gore and his wife of 40 years, Tipper, have decided to part ways.

Al_Gore_Tipper_Gore According to an e-mailed statement obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

You know, I know that divorce is natural and healthy and sometimes necessary, but still .. a little piece of my heart dies when a couple that's been together THIS long finally calls it quits.

Godspeed, y'all.

Sarah Lena is a romantic at heart.

This really bums me out. You like to think at a certain point that you'll be able to say you've made it - but apparently we're never safe. :-(

Wild. Very sad.
On the other hand, Tipper. Yeah. Never liked her, going back to wayyy before Al was vice pres. The whole PMRC thing was pretty offensive.

Yeah, Tipper was way wrong about the music thing, but she's a good advocate for mental health parity. What a bummer. It's like the parents I wanted to have are divorcing. Sigh.

This totally bums me out. I actually snapped a photo of the two of them canoodling backstage at a U2 concert years ago, just kind of sweetly swaying to the music with their arms wrapped around each other. Wah!

Pretty well any divorce makes me at least a little sad, but particularly one after this long.

Makes me so sad.
