Wait, Wait — They Let Inhofe Fly?

“Newly released Federal Aviation Administration documents and audiotapes shed a scary new light on a bizarre incident late last year during which U.S. Senator James Inhofe landed his Cessna on a closed runway at a south Texas airport, scattering construction workers who ran for their lives as the politician’s plane hopscotched over them and six vehicles.” [Smoking Gun, via Political Wire]


he was simply demonstrating his mccainish piloting skills to typical teapublican’t voters in hopes they will vote against their own self interests as usual. life being the self interest in this case. they can worry about liberty and the pursuit of happiness once inhofe lands in something akin to one piece.

@jwmcsame: mccainish piloting skills

We have a winner!

But…but…but…doesn’t the physics of flying rely on the evil thing called science?!? And involves a scientific theory, namely gravity?

Meanwhile, Inhofe is busy talking about the “happy face” of the dictator of Ivory Coast.

Cameron County, Texas?
Why sure, Senator Inofe was down picking up a load of blow and illegal workers to take back to Oklahoma. #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement

Is that the county McAllen is in? Or is it Brownsville?
/too lazy to look it up and can’t remember/have blotted it out from 7th grade (yes, we were supposed to memorize all 280-odd counties on a map in my Texas history class)

Brownsville, Matamoras ‘cross the border.
Maybe just maybe, he got confused thought it was Spring Break at South Padre and went for some co-ed poontang.

Too bad his little flight didn’t happen in 2001 down on the Crawford Ranch.

@Dodgerblue: If someone says “poontang” you know they’re most likely from Texas or somebody who spent time in Texas.

@SanFranLefty: Actually Lefty, the word never entered my consciousness until later in my life when I worked with this fella from Alabama.
Everything bad associated with Texas has been drug in like a dead skunk from out of state at one time or the other. Examples: Phil Gramm and Dick Armey. Carpet bagger economic professors who know something about co-educational poontang.

@texrednface: Eeewww, now why did you leave me with the mental image of Phil Gramm and Dick Armey perstorking when I’m still on my first cup of coffee?

@redmanlaw: here is a clip of a not-fan (who could obviously whup teds ass) confronting him over his lunacy. this one has no real sound but i’ve seen the one with sound that lasts a little longer. i can’t find it now though. notice how fast phony tough ted calls for government assistance at the first sign of confrontation.
