Two Jerks from Oklahoma

Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK)

Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK)

At the same time that I am appalled at the tornado devastation in Oklahoma, I am also appalled at the weasels that Oklahomans chose to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) both voted against aid to Hurricane Sandy victims in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut … while at the same time making darned sure that Oklahoma would get all the help it needed. Everyone knows that New Yorkers are all liberals, and they should be made to pay for it!

Hey, bozos, these aren’t the Confederate States of America! We’re all in the same boat—whether it’s an earthquake in California or Alaska, a hurricane in Louisiana, a volcanic eruption in Oregon, a drought in Texas, or a tsunami in Hawaii. We are all Americans and all need help when Mother Nature throws the book at us.

Irrespective of whether global warming is affected by what human beings do, we all suffer more or less equally from the vagaries of nature.

Either Inhofe or Coburn suggested that Oklahoma should be helped, but that help should be financed by cuts to Federal spending. That could work—under certain circumstances. Let me see: How much does a U.S. Senator earn? I am sure that both gentlemen, out of an excess of patriotism, would be willing to serve without compensation.

  1. Hi Jim,
    Yes, these guys are jerks. Yes, Oklahoma is a “red” state and very conservative.
    However, the people who died in the hurricane, weren’t punished by God or Mother Nature for being Republicans or the children of Republicans. Both of my grandparents on my mother’s side were from Oklahoma, and I turned out OK. I heard some horrific tornado stories; however, those ancestors had the sense to build shelters. They were pretty smart about some things. By the way, Oklahoma was never part of the Confederacy, it was Indian Territory before it became a state, after the civil war. They do have some wonderful horse people there, and even a few transplanted New Yorkers and liberals wandering around. Anyway, make these two jerks go out and pick up debris. The Senate, and Congress in general, is just pathetic.

  2. Or, the whole idiotic Congress: “It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” (Mark Twain)
