Newt Slams Inhofe's Position on Global Warming

The senior senator from the great state of Oklahoma, our very own Jim Inhofe, is steadily losing allies in the political battle over global warming. The latest defection is none other than a stalwart of the Republican Right, Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the House of Representatives.

In a public debate earlier today in Washington, Sen. John Kerry asked Gingrich to clarify his message to conservatives such as Inhofe on the issue. Gingrich said:

My message I think is that the evidence is sufficient that we should move towards the most effective possible steps to reduce carbon-loading of the atmosphere.

"And do it urgently," Gingrich added, to applause from the crowd.

If this keeps up, Sen. Inhofe will find himself a lonely man, even in his own party.

Wow...that's pretty bad when Newt steps to your left. Inhofe's in trouble.
