Inhofe For Minister of Disinformation

As you may recall, Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) back in June made a complete ass of himself while on the Senate floor debating the Federal Marriage Amendment, standing in front of a large picture of his family:

"As you see here, and I think this is maybe the most important prop we'll have during the entire debate, my wife and I have been married 47 years. We have 20 kids and grandkids. I'm really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we've never had a divorce or any kind of homosexual relationship."
Inhofe also predicted that homosexual marriage would lead to more ghettos, illegitimate children and more and more people on welfare. That's right. The previous sentence makes no sense. It was never explained by him how he reached that conclusion but I suspect his mother dropped him on his head.

Now the Senator with the big bump on his head who said that global warming was “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” and whom I doubt ever read Mein Kampf and admits he hasn't seen "An Inconvenient Truth" has a new revelation about those who believe in global warming:
"It kind of reminds . . . I could use the Third Reich, the big lie," Inhofe said.

"You say something over and over and over and over again, and people will believe it, and that's their strategy."

As for anyone trying to use the current heat wave to bolster the case, he said even those on the other side of the debate concede that no one should link a single weather event to climate change.

"A hot summer has nothing to do with global warming," Inhofe said. "Let's keep in mind it was just three weeks ago that people were saying, 'Wait a minute; it is unusually cool."'

He blames the media for handing over an unfair amount of air time and coverage to the side that pushes the claim that links man to climate change.

"I have asked several of them," Inhofe said: 'Name one time when an hour has been given to the other side of the issue.' "

While declining to watch either the Gore movie or the Brokaw documentary, the senator said he armed himself with the statements used in both.

"I know the text, and I know they are using old stuff that has been totally discredited," Inhofe said. "Everything on which they based their story, in terms of the facts, has been refuted scientifically."
Comparing global warming to Nazis? Where could he have gotten that idea? Oh right here! And oh my my, Inhofe received nearly "$290000 from oil and gas companies, including ExxonMobil, for his 2002 reelection campaign." So let's talk fascism, Mr. Inhofe, you fraud.

And speaking of arming ourselves, please read the following at Mother Jones:
Some Like It Hot
Forty public policy groups have this in common: They seek to undermine the scientific consensus that humans are causing the earth to overheat. And they all get money from ExxonMobil.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, president codpiece will be entertaining American Idol winners, "Taylor Hicks and the other Top 10 finalists next Friday in the Oval Office. It will be the first time contestants from the hit television show have been invited to meet the president."

What wars in the Middle East?
