It's been a pretty horrible day over at Casa del Calamari, so here's something delightful, a small moment of joy amidst the rubble in Oklahoma City.
Speaking of the tornado, one side-effect of the disaster is the sudden pressure on representatives of Oklahoma over in DC to try and acquire federal relief. Just one problem, of course, they just couldn't shut themselves up at Christmas about how federal relief for Hurricane Sandy was a waste of money.
Tough spot, right? What do you do? Do you stick to your principles and insist poor Oklahomans should be just as utterly fucked as poor New Yorkers, because there's only enough money left in the budget to bomb Iran? Or do you spray out the most obvious bullshit conceivable so as to argue disaster relief is fine so long as is for a state without a coastline?
Right now the score is tied at one all. Which of Inhofe and Cockburn are most deserving of your disgust is a decision each of you can make for yourselves.
