ABSTRACT
The article exposes U.S. Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore as a flagrant liar. This was shown by a fictitious letter purportedly made by him as a confession to the American public. The letter shared his technique of rectifying exaggerations by immediately correcting himself. Some of his exaggerations include a claim that he was a published rabbinical scholar and that he took up pre-medicine course at Harvard. The letter also suggested that his wife, Tipper, believed that such exaggerations would have a negative impact on his political career.
