I just love that Sen. Inhofe had the cojones to place the Weekly Standard cover featuring a cartoon of naked Al Gore next to him for his speech yesterday.

Nice exchange at The Corner earlier today between Jay Nordlinger and Robert Costa. First Nordlinger (bold is all mine):

…I was talking with a very smart political-social analyst yesterday. The subject of global warming came up. It has been a bad, bad several months for the global-warming crowd. My friend said, “Wouldn’t it be something if the most adamant ‘deniers’ — not the moderate ‘skeptics,’ but the adamant ‘deniers,’ such as Senator Inhofe — turned out to be absolutely correct?”

Yes, wouldn’t that be something? Sometimes one of the “extreme” positions is the correct one. But if global warming did indeed prove to be a crock, the world would just glide on, as though nothing had happened — just as it did when the coming ice age proved to be a crock, when the mass food shortages proved to be a crock, when the . . .”

Always, always, on to the next alarm, without a murmur of apology, or moment of self-reflection, or backward glance.

To which Costa replies, perfectly capturing the essence of why Inhofe is so effective:

Jay — One of the things I like about Inhofe is his sense of humor. Sure, he’s an “adamant denier,” but he does it with a smile. The other side seems to grimace on, blogs against the current. Six years ago, when Inhofe was in Milan, green activists were so infuriated by his mere presence that they papered “Wanted” posters with his picture across the conference center, emblazoned with his famous quote about global warming: “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” His quip: That was the “first time the environmentalists have ever quoted me accurately.”Just recently, in December, Inhofe led a “truth squad” at the Copenhagen climate summit. Mother Jones, for one, was not amused. Not that Inhofe cares. He who laughs best . . .

I like that aspect of the Senator too. While Joe Romm and his angry comrades stomp their feet, Inhofe calls out the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American public” with a grandfatherly wink and smile. As I’ve said often on this blog – skeptics have more fun.
