Offered without comment...

At a town hall meeting Wednesday Sen. Jim Inhofe told Chickasha residents he does not need to read the 1,000 page health care reform bill, he will simply 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.

Inhofe said public opinion and information provided by news media have helped him become a staunch non-supporter of the bill.


  1. As soon as I saw Inhofe, I knew what followed would be a special kind of stupid. He revels in his ignorance.

  2. That's ok.

    Inhofe is in excellent company. Lots of his colleagues have voted for bills WITHOUT READING THEM that put each of us in even further debt than we already were in.

    Example: the @*#*& stimulus.

    So, yes, he most certainly SHOULD read the bill. Not reading it is ridiculous.

    But at least he is not borrowing more money in our name without having the foggiest idea why.

  3. A major problem is that too many people don't read anything, and get all their "information" from Fox News, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Lou Dobbs, and the like. Then they believe it and treat it like Gospel. That's not a well-informed electorate. I guess that's how Inhofe got elected...

  4. Barbwire, don't forget to add in all those non-readers who get their "information" from ABC, MSNBC, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and the like. Really, it's true on both sides of the political isle.
