Comedian David Letterman didn't hold back last night in his criticism of Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, ripping the former Tulsa mayor for his recent (and quite idiotic) comments about the Newtown, Conn., parents who have been pushing for gun control legislation.
Unsurprisngly, the parents of the Sandy Hook school shooting victims have been outspoken about the need for background checks, limits on magazine capacity and other measures to control guns and gun violence.
But Inhofe recently claimed—without a shred of evidence—that it's all Obama's fault. He made them do it.
This is classic Inhofe, mouthing spurious right-wing talking points without regard to actual facts.
For his part, Letterman was having none of it, showing a portrait of a smiling Inhofe and naming him naming "Stooge of the Night."
It's an "honor" richly deserved.
