Al and Tipper Gore to separate after 40 years of marriage, according to the website Politico.

The politically-themed site received an email from the Gores and verified it’s contents.

“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.

This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”

Good for Al… he put up with this bi-polar twit for 40 years. I can’t imagine the suffering he went through during this time. If you recall, Tipper was the co-founder of the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) which was a committee focused on censoring music videos, placing warnings of explicit lyrics on album covers, and pressuring stores to hide albums with explicit covers.

In the words of Ice-T in his rap “Freedom of Speech”, this one’s for you, Tipper! Toodles!

Freedom of Speech, that’s some motherfuckin’ bullshit
You say the wrong thing, they’ll lock your ass up quick
The FCC says “Profanity – No Airplay”?
They can suck my dick while I take a shit all day
Think I give a fuck about some silly bitch named Gore?
Yo PMRC, here we go, raw
Yo Tip, what’s the matter? You ain’t gettin’ no dick?
You’re bitchin’ about rock’n’roll, that’s censorship, dumb bitch
The Constitution says we all got a right to speak
Say what we want Tip, your argument is weak
Censor records, TV, school books too
And who decides what’s right to hear? You?
Hey PMRC, you stupid fuckin’ assholes
The sticker on the record is what makes ’em sell gold
Can’t you see, you alcoholic idiots
The more you try to suppress us, the larger we get

And a hilarious video of Frank Zappa presenting a reverend reading lyrics to The Mentors song “Golden Showers” to the US Senate in 1985 after the Senate held hearings based on the PMRC’s proposals for censorship.
