How in the world did Oklahoma ever elect Senator Inhofe? Were they falling behind in the “crazy wingnut” race with their neighboring states? Not only does he religiously deny global warming, he’s now claiming the WMD justification for the Iraq War was a fabrication of the media! Inhofe now:

?The whole idea of weapons of mass destruction was never the issue, yet they keep trying to bring this up,? Inhofe said. [?]

Pressed for an explanation, Inhofe said weapons of mass destruction were ?incidental? to the decision to invade Iraq.

?The media made that the issue because they knew Saddam Hussein had used weapons of mass destruction.?

Inhofe then (2002):

Our intelligence system has said that we know that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction ? I believe including nuclear. There?s not one person on this panel who would tell you unequivocally that he doesn?t have the missile means now, or is nearly getting the missile means to deliver a weapon of mass destruction. And I for one am not willing to wait for that to happen.

Anybody else thinking of Slim Pickens riding the nuke all the way to the ground, waving his hat and screaming “yeehaw”, from Dr. Strangelove? Crazy!
