Inhofe Raises Prospect of 'Revolution'
One of these days, it sure would be nice if Republicans felt the need to denounce this kind of radical, vile rhetoric.
At a town hall Wednesday night, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) told constituents, "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country."
Inhofe also said he doesn't need to know what's in a health care reform bill to vote against it.
"I don't have to read it, or know what's in it. I'm going to oppose it anyways," he said at the event in Chickasha, Okla.
The senator was in good company, with most of the audience agreeing with him and expressing their disdain for big government and Democrats. One man said, "No more compromise. We're losing our country."
I can't begin to understand why Inhofe and his like-minded extremists are so angry. But for an elected member of the United States Senate to speak publicly about the possibility of a "revolution" is deeply frightening.
