What A Dick!!!

From today's Progress Report:

CONGRESS -- INHOFE COMPARES PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING SCIENCE TO 'THE THIRD REICH': Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) is the nation’s most prominent global warming denier. He famously declared that global warming is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people." Now he’s taken the argument a step further. In an interview with the Tulsa World, Inhofe compared people who believe global warming is a problem to Nazis: "[He] heaped criticism on what he saw as the strategy used by those on the other side of the debate and offered a historical comparison. ... 'It kind of reminds... I could use the Third Reich, the big lie,' Inhofe said." The "big lie" is a propaganda technique Adolf Hitler attributed to Jews in his book Mein Kampf. It involves telling lies “so colossal” that no one would believe “others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” Inhofe added that every claim in An Inconvenient Truth “has been refuted scientifically.” He also admitted he’d never seen the movie.
