Occasionally there’s a politician that I really like. Yes, they come around on rare occasions — political solstices if you will — and James Inhofe is one of those politicians. Inhofe bugs the hell out of many of those on the left side of the aisle, and it’s grand fun to watch. The annoyance du jour is Inhofe’s skepticism about the theory of man-made global warming.
Inhofe is simply calling the bluff of self proclaimed global warming “climatologist” blowhards — many of them celebrity twits who can afford everything but common sense and a big mirror so they can see their mansions, private jets, buses, tractor trailers, and limos behind them — and wondering aloud why so many global warming alarmists don’t seem to believe their own tales of looming doom:
A leading skeptic of global-warming science is challenging celebrity activists such as Al Gore and Sheryl Crow to lower their “carbon footprint” to the same level as the average American by Earth Day in April 2008.
“I simply believe that former Vice President Al Gore and his Hollywood friends who demand we change the way we live to avert this over-hyped ‘crisis’ not only talk the talk, but walk the walk,” said Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican.
“How hard is it for these elitists to become as frugal in their energy consumption as the average American? I think the American public has a right to know they are being had.”
Al Gore has refused to sign a “personal energy ethics pledge,” and so will the rest of them.
The reason is simple. As I’ve written before, the definition of “we” in the liberal dictionary is as follows:
We: (pronounced ”wee”). Plural pronoun meaning ”everybody except me.”
And the swipes at Inhofe’s skepticism continue. How come the left always considers skepticism healthy — be it skepticism of the president, the government in general, religion, business, etc., but if you’re skeptical of them, they get jumpier than Alec Baldwin’s kid on take-your-daughter-to-work day? Don’t struggle with an answer — it’s a redundant question.
