Aw, self-righteous family bonding.

  • Aw, self-righteous family bonding.

Jim Inhofe, America’s Worst Senator, will have none of your “climate change.” This has been well-documented. And it is snowing this week, a lot, which means of course that Jim Inhofe was right about everything, all along.

So of course this week his family built an igloo on the National Mall and put a sign on it saying “Al Gore’s New Home”:

The Oklahoma Republican’s daughter, Molly Rapert; her husband, Jimmy; and their four children built an igloo — roomy enough to fit several people inside — at Third Street and Independence Avenue Southeast. They officially dedicated the humble abode in honor of global-warming crusader Gore, even posting a cardboard sign on the igloo’s roof reading “AL GORE’S NEW HOME” on one side and “HONK IF YOU [HEART] GLOBAL WARMING” on the other. Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, is famously one of Congress’ most vocal critics of global warming. And he told HOH that he found his family’s ironic tribute to Gore — which came during one of Washington’s snowiest winters on record — “really humorous.”

These adorable little-uns would of course be among the same campaign props family members in the large family photo Inhofe displayed on the Senate floor during a gay marriage debate, saying:

As you see here, and I think this is maybe the most important prop we’ll have during the entire debate, my wife and I have been married 47 years. We have 20 kids and grandkids. I’m really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we’ve never had a divorce or any kind of homosexual relationship.

It’s really nice how dedicated his family is to playing along with his smug, “good-humored” reactionary pranks. Which grandkid will be the first one to come out to him and be ostracized from the family?
