The Embarrassing Mr. Inhofe: More Clap-Trap from Tulsa's Own

As much as we hate to admit it, Sen. Jim Inhofe is one of our own. That's right, Sooner fans, Jim Inhofe is a Tulsan. In fact, he's the former mayor of our fair city.

Unfortunately for Tulsa and the state of Oklahoma, Inhofe is a partisan political hack. Instead of leadership, thoughtfulness or vision, we get reactionary clap-trap and partisan salvos. 

On global warming and climate change, Inhofe is a true believer—he truly believes the whole thing is a hoax. It's made Inhofe a national laughing stock, but the man himself is proud of his stubbornness and defiance.

Never one to consider facts or actual evidence, Inhofe persists in believing what he wants to believe. It's the Inhofe way—he don't need no stinkin' science! 

So when the snow comes as it does every winter, Inhofe and his allies claim that this supports their position, notwithstanding actual weather patterns.

Think Progress has more on the latest Inhofe blunder. Read it here.
