James Inhofe Now an Embarrassment to Entire US

James Inhofe used to be just an embarrassment to the people of Oklahoma (although most Oklahomans have yet to realize this) but now he's going overseas to make us look bad in front of the cool countries.


(from Politico)
COPENHAGEN — Sen. Jim Inhofe flew across the Atlantic and — on little sleep — braved the snow, the cold and the dark to deliver his skeptical message at the international climate conference.

How has this dunce not had his passport revoked? Everyone knows you keep the crazy uncle locked in the basement so the neighbors don't see him.

The ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hoped to spread two messages in Copenhagen: Global warming is a hoax, and there’s no way the Senate is going to pass a cap-and-trade bill.

Oh, God! How can we expect other countries to take us seriously when this dolt is representing us on the international stage?

Quantcast I Don


What he found when he got here: a few aides and a single reporter.

“I think he’s going to be a little disappointed,” one of his aides remarked.

But Inhofe’s aides eventually rustled up a group of reporters, and the Oklahoman — wearing black snakeskin cowboy boots — held forth from the top of a flight of stairs in the conference media center.

Yeah, that's a mistake. When your boss is James Inhofe, it's probably best to shield him from the international press.

A reporter asked: “If there’s a hoax, then who’s putting on this hoax, and what’s the motive?”

See, these aren't American reporters. They aren't required to pretend to take you seriously. They don't need to act like your ridiculous ideas count as much as the considered opinions of all the legitimate scientists in the world, lest they be accused of liberal bias.


A reporter asked: “If there’s a hoax, then who’s putting on this hoax, and what’s the motive?”

“It started in the United Nations,” Inhofe said, “and the ones in the United States who really grab ahold of this is the Hollywood elite.”

The United Nations? Are you sure you don't mean the Freemasons? Or the Illuminati? At least make your conspiracy theory interesting, if not at all believable. And whomever you decide to accuse of being behind the conspiracy, take the time to assign them a motive. Say the U.N. owns stock in a solar energy company, or the Hollywood Elite want to make everyone afraid of rising oceans so they can have all the killer waves to themselves.

". . . the ones in the United States who really grab ahold of this is the Hollywood elite.”

One reporter asked Inhofe if he was referring to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

See, foreign reporters aren't just going to accept what you say at face value without asking follow-up questions.

Another reporter — this one from Der Spiegel — told the senator: “You’re ridiculous.”

He's got a point, Senator!
