There are many fine points to be argued over when discussing global warming, overfishing, peak oil, stimulus packages, etc.
But some things are simply self-evident. So when Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) says this:
People complain that we are buying — importing from the Middle East — oil and gas. And then they find out that we have it all right here. We don’t have to do that. If their argument there is “Well, we don’t want to use oil and gas because we think it pollutes” — which it doesn’t — but if that’s their argument, then why are we willing to import it from Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East?
He either a) is stupid, or b) thinks we’re all stupid.
No, Mr. Inhofe, black is not white, up is not down.
