Sen. James Inhofe, a startlingly ignorant man, will once again become the chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee if the Republicans retake control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections. Let that thought sink in without shuddering.
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said Tuesday he will again head the Senate committee overseeing transportation and environmental regulation if Republicans win control of the upper chamber in November.
Speaking to about 50 plant managers and others associated with Tulsa Port of Catoosa tenants, Inhofe said a Republican victory would make him chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee…
Under the Senate Republicans’ somewhat complicated rules, Arizona’s John McCain would become Armed Services chairman in the event of a GOP majority, and Inhofe would resume his top position on EPW.
Bear in mind that this is the kind of “thought” that rattles around in his head:
Inhofe: Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ my point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.
That man shouldn’t be running the night shift at a Taco Bell, much less a Senate committee.
