James Inhofe (R-Oil and Gas Industry), one of the dumbest men ever to serve in the U.S. Senate, pulled a childish and ignorant publicity stunt on the floor of that body on Thursday, bringing a snowball into the chamber and throwing it to another member to show that global warming is, as he has called it many times, a hoax.
A few inches of snow provided one lawmaker with all the evidence he needed to disprove global warming.
Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., who has called global warming a hoax, came to the Senate floor armed with a snowball from the few inches Washington, D.C., received earlier in the day and the remnants of a weekend snowfall.
“You know what this is?” he asked, holding up the white orb he extracted from a Ziploc bag. “It’s a snowball, just from outside here. So, it’s very, very cold out, very unseasonable.”
He thinks snow on the ground in Washington, DC in February is “unseasonable”? After how many years he’s lived in that city as the representative from the great state of Oil and Gas Interests? And seriously, anyone who claims that snow disproves global warming is too stupid to vote, much less hold public office.
