Oh Jim

Now that he lost his prestigious position of Chairman of Global Warming Denial, Jim Inhofe is trying to reinvent his image in a more positive light....As a Holocaust Denier.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) got the crowd cheering early in the day. "I have been called -- my kids are all aware of this -- dumb, crazy man, science abuser, Holocaust denier, villain of the month, hate-filled, warmonger, Neanderthal, Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun," he announced. "And I can just tell you that I wear some of those titles proudly."
Not to leave out murderous, bigoted and insane. Oh, but we love you Jim Inhofe! This type of language reveals good-ole-fashion and proud Republican hatred, like calling people fags.

Understanding Darfur

No one condones what is going on in Darfur these days. Yet, despite all of the activism about the genocide, many (myself included) lack a basic understanding of the causes of the genocide. This article from the Nation helps to make sense of the political forces in play in the region and explains why peace in Darfur is still an elusive goal.
