During a heated discussion at work between two people arguing about whether or not global warming is a hoax, a Senator’s blog was cited as a resource. Curious, I hit up Wikipedia and found a page on Senator Jim Inhofe.
Quite an interesting fellow really. Here are some choice quotes from the wikipedia article (take them for what they’re worth).
He also stated that Global Warming is
” … the second-largest hoax ever played on the American people, after the separation of church and state.”
Yes, that whole separation thing was a massive … uh .. hoax?
He’s even pinned down who’s behind this environmental hoax: The Weather Channel. They need to keep up their ratings after all.
Now, if this was a joe-shmoe on the street I wouldn’t have noted it, but this is a Senator. The very same Senator that was chair of the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.
And his ideas on other issues really don’t resonate with me at all. For example he’s trying to amend the constitution to make same sex marriage illegal. His presentation on the Senate floor included this little gem, while pointing to a poster-sized 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.
Yup, no homosexuals in his family. None at all … hey .. don’t look in that closet! What worked for him must therefore be struck into law and work for everyone.
To top it all off, he seems to be representing the people, as his record shows landslide wins for decades now. Either that or people are simply voting along party lines.
Really? How does this make any sense at all?
