    Sad news for Senator Inhofe and his family.

    How soon before the left starts gleefully Tweeting their joy over the the death of Dr. Inhofe? Mocking conservatives who’ve tragically lost a loved one is a particularly vile left wing trait and I’m sure they won’t disappoint on this sad occasion. I don’t understand it, but it’s as predicable as the tides.
