What, Me Worry?

Thank God for God! Otherwise, our elected leaders might actually have to tackle issues, solve problems, and in general, lead!

But, according to Republican senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, despite a growing body of evidence to the contrary, one of our biggest problems as a nation really is no problem at all because, quite simply, “God’s still up there” to protect us.

So, just what issue can we all collectively ignore because God is on the case instead?

A. The War in Iraq
B. The search for Osama Bin Laden
C. The battle against AIDS
D. Global warming
E. Irregularities in electronic voting machines

D. Global warming need not be taken up as an issue for the Congress, Inhofe said, because after all, “God’s still up there.” What makes this statement even more disturbing is the fact that Inhofe is Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works — in other words, the top man in the Senate regarding environmental issues like global warming.

Thankfully, Inhofe won’t be in charge of the committee much longer. He will be replaced by new Democratic leadership after the first of the year. Perhaps God is still up there after all.

Inhofe's (in)famous statement: Global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American public.

And that's just one example of his asshattery.

It's people like that in such important positions in our government that make us lose sleep at night!
