Climate change deniers and Fox News believers everywhere heaved a massive sigh of relief after Senator James Inhofe debunked global warming by proving that it sometimes snows in some places at certain times of the year.
To drive home his point the Senator brought a snowball to work.
Addressing the Senate, he said: “In case we have forgotten, because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record, I ask the chair ‘You know what this is?’
“It’s a snowball, from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonable.”
He went on to say: “Catch” before tossing the snowball, which may have had a stone inside it, across the house.
An unnamed Democrat then reportedly yelled: “It’s on” before producing his own snowball, at which point everybody ran outside and had a great big snowball fight and built snowmen.
Okay, they didn’t really.
Keystone, ‘saul good…..man!
But when it comes to wasting American tax dollars, they may as well; it would have been more productive than the Keystone XL bill amendment, which basically said: “Climate change is real and not a hoax.”
Even Senator Inhofe agreed it wasn’t a hoax, despite having written an entire book called The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future. He’s nothing if not flexible I guess.
I’m only surprised he isn’t already being called ‘Slippin’ Jimmy” in reference to Saul Goodman’s alter ego, the ice and snow, slip and trip conman of Goodman’s youth in the Breaking Bad spin off: Better Call Saul.
