Inhofe Huffs And Puffs Again

James Inhofe (R-Exxon) just insists on being the Capitol's resident clown:

Fresh from his face-to-face tussle with former Vice President Al Gore, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) is vowing to stall Gore’s hotly anticipated Capitol concert to draw attention to global warming.

Inhofe’s belief that climate change is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people” is common knowledge in the capitol, and environmental groups cheered the new prospects for carbon-capping legislation when he ceded the Environment and Public Works Committee gavel this session. But Inhofe’s parliamentary powers can block indefinitely the resolution that would permit Gore to choose the capitol’s West Front for the U.S. leg of his seven-continent Live Earth concert tour — a collaboration between Gore and promoter Kevin Wall, who masterminded previous blockbuster charity concerts Live Aid and Live 8.

“There has never been a partisan political event at the Capitol, and this is a partisan political event,” Inhofe said yesterday.
Uhm, dude, the concert resolution was sponsored by Harry Reid and Olympia Snowe, a Republican. And if you think stopping a concert at the Capitol would somehow convince the sensible majority of us that global warming is a hoax, give it up.

We know that you're just being a good foot soldier for your oil company overlords, but really, stop making a spectacle of yourself and just let the kids dance.
