Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

I cannot believe what I heard today

Senator Inhofe, of global warming denialist fame*, has on his own Senate website the YouTube video of his pathetic lies, offered from his trip to Afghanistan to an eager American public.

So soon after I go prattling on about the unwisdom of making politically charged statements that are so easy to refute, he serves this up: Obama is gutting the military and endangering the country. Evidently, the good Senator does not read my blog. Maybe it's just because he's busy with his foreign travel.

Well, if a 4% funding increase constitutes a cut, Inhofe does higher math than I can comprehend.

But, of course, his intellectual prowess is -- is . . . uh . . .

Urbino puts it in perspective.
