Recently, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee, was once and for all able to dispel the myth of global warning with a simple flick of the wrist… a snowball! “I ask the chair, you know what this is? It’s a snowball, just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonal. Mr. President, catch this.” The snowball struck Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, who was presiding over the Senate at the time, right in the kisser. Fortunately, the Senate nurse was nearby to supply some ice to the senator’s swollen lip.
After Senator’s Inhofe seemingly conclusive rebuke to all those climate-change fearmongers, a reporter caught up with Inhofe and asked, “But, Sir, scientists have just proclaimed 2014 as the hottest year on record?” Inhofe laughed and shook his head. “Scientists are like statistics. You can get them to say anything.” The reporter countered, “But, Sir, 97% of all climate scientists believe in global warming.” “You go ask those folks on the East Coast, especially in Boston, if they believe in global warming. Heck they were hit with a record amount of snow this year. I hear they’re still digging out! Look I’m no scientist, just Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee, but from what I see, it’s damn cold out!”
Rumors later spread across the floor of the Senate that Inhofe was going to bring his lucky four-leaf clover to his next senate hearing to prove once and for all leprechauns exist.
