Just a cherry pickin' moment: Inhofe busted

13 May 2005
Back on 17 April, Hot Politics! noted the masquerades of Senator James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma (Inhofe and Truth).

Hot Politics! failed to note on 19 April a complete demolition of Senator Inhofe by Chris Mooney.

Mooney's article is a must read. Inhofe's claim to coherence and honesty with regard to this issue is utterly destroyed. This will probably do no harm to him as a politician in a culture where the ecstasy of unreason is securely embedded.
