Jim Inhofe RSVPs to the Senate Floor with Naked Al Gore
When you really want to discredit your enemy, your best bet is your enemy's own naked image. Right? Um... Inhofe is on his own with this one...
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) addressed climate change on the Senate floor Monday, bringing along with him an unusual prop -- a naked Al Gore poster.
Climate change denial has become a become a routine subject for Inhofe, the man who was disappointed not to top Rolling Stone's list of the "planet's worst enemies."
Earlier this week, he took the opportunity to bring another element into the debate -- an enlargement of last week's Weekly Standard cover article featuring a nude, cartoon version of Al Gore in the Arctic.
"As soon as he saw it, he knew he wanted to give a speech," an Inhofe spokesman said, according to Roll Call.
In the Senate address, Inhofe railed against Al Gore's warnings of the dangers of global warming, including a lengthy op-ed in the New York Times last month.
"Gore seems to be drowning in a sea of his own global warming illusions. Nevertheless, he's desperately trying to keep global warming alarmism alive today," Inhofe said. "The notion that anthropogenic gases are causing global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," Inhofe continued, repeating a claim he made in 2003.
You tell 'em, homie! But seriously, can you please keep the naked Al Gore poster at home next time you're railing against the climate change hoax? Please?
