Sen. Jim Inhofe is not known for his subtle political reasoning. When it comes to political predictions, the man is a bull in a china shop.
That would explain Inhofe's recent "guarantee"—yes, he actually used that word—that the midterm elections would lead to a Republican takeover of the U.S. senate.
Well, no. In fact, this was always a long shot, especially after the GOP made Christine O'Donnell their candidate in Delaware. O'Donnell proved to be a flake, which doomed her candidacy.
With O'Donnell and other Tea Party candidates going down in flames, Inhofe's guarantee was worthless. But not as worthless as Inhofe's political legacy in the U. S. senate.
