Inhofe's Perfectly Predictable Republican Demand For Big Gu'Ment Aid For Me But Not For Thee

In the wake of the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) "rejected comparisons between federal aid for this disaster and the Hurricane Sandy relief package he voted against," the Washington Post reports.
Act surprised. By the way, neither should Inhofe's Tornado Alley constituents be surprised should their settlements be struck with historically unprecedented tornadoes and storms of ever greater intensity with ever greater frequency in the Greenhouse Present of catastrophic anthropogenic climate change their Senator still thinks it is cute to deride, as the title of his unspeakably stupid and evil book of last year would have it, The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future.

> . . .Tornado Alley. . .

Weren't we just reading here recently
( )
about "Thiel's assertion. . . that we are now witnessing an historical inversion
in which Californians are leaving its sclerotic tyranny to seek economic
opportunities in Oklahoma"?

It may be that this historical inversion will be trumped by inversions
of the meteorological kind.

However, isn't it eerie how this unprecedently large tornado happened
on the **same day** that the Connecticut Yankee Council of the Boy Scouts
of America decided to let in Teh Gays?

Oh, wait, the tornado in God-fearing Oklahoma, not Connecticut.
Well, you're getting the next one, Connecticut!

Interesting strategy, if Greenhouse Storms rebranded Queer Storms maybe GOP will take up the fight against climate change? Btw, on the scouting front, I was myself fey gay tres Webelos.
