Inhofe: Hagel Was ‘Endorsed’ By Iran

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: TPM

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) interrupted a heated Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the nomination of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense on Tuesday to defend his fellow colleague Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) called out Cruz for insinuating that Hagel may have given speeches to or received money from "radical or extreme groups."

"I want to make one observation," Inhofe interjected. "I think I wrote down the words Senator Nelson was criticizing our senator there for implying that Chuck Hagel was cozy with terrorist type countries referring to Iran. I'd say he's endorsed by them. You can't get any cozier than that."

2. What a load of dung

Chuck Hagel is a decorated combat vet.

It just keeps getting worse and worse.

4. No one will ever accuse Inhofe of being the sharpest tool in the toolbox.

A tool, yes. Just not a sharp one.

5. Some of the responses at that link are priceless.

And I say Inhofe was endorsed by Secret Brotherhood of Donkey Humpers. I don't have anything in writing, I have not a single shred of proof. But neither does he.

7. Sure, Jim. Just like Nixon was "endorsed' by China, or the Soviets "endorsed" Reagan.

The level of idiocy and the lack of nuanced thought displayed by some Right-wing Republicans never ceases to amaze.
