Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is no stranger to bizarre pronouncements. You may remember his commentary on Abu Gharib--he was the Senator who was "outraged by the outrage." But, via The Plank, it is rare to see so many truly jaw-dropping claims by a sitting Senator in one articl. Among other comments, Inhofe claimed that:
-The success America has enjoyed in Iraq is "nothing short of a miracle."
-Defended the "Bridge to Nowhere" as "one of the few things in Washington that works."
-Argued that "global warming is largely a front for international economic movements."
Oklahoma might have the worst duo of Senators in the nation (Tom Coburn (R) is the other). They are crazy in different ways, to be sure, but when you get down to it, they're both mighty crazy.
