U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, the Washington relic and Bush lapdog, is holding his annual Oklahoma Dove Hunt at Quartz Mountain Lodge Sept. 7-8. His invited guest is probably the only other senator who will even be seen with him these days, John Cornyn (R- Texas), another Bush toady and Washington insider.
Are there two more washed-up, narcissistic Washington politicians than Inhofe and Cornyn? And here these two Republican bigwigs are hunting the dove, the international symbol of peace, as more American soldiers and innocent Iraqis die. The hunt is a dark but fitting symbol of the killing these two men have supported during the Iraq occupation. As many Republican leaders, such as U.S. Sens. John Warner (Virgina) and Chuck Hagel (Nebraska) moderate their positions on the occupation, both Inhofe and Cornyn want the killing to continue indefinitely.
Inhofe has also embarrassed Oklahoma and the nation with his outrageous comments about torture, global warming and lifestyles. He is despised throughout the world as an ultra-partisan who does not believe in basic scientific evidence.
State Sen. Andrew Rice (D-Oklahoma City), a progressive Democrat, is running against Inhofe in the 2008 election. Rice believes Inhofe took his “eye off the ball” by not going after terrorists after the September 11, 2001 terrorists attack. Rice’s bother, David, died in the World Trade Center attacks on that day. Instead of hunting terrorists, Inhofe blindly followed Bush into the Iraq debacle and now the country is on the wrong track.
But while Inhofe is hunting dove as more American soldiers and innocent Iraqis die, we can help send him into retirement. I have started a Hunt Terrorists, Not Doves account for Rice on ActBlue. Become a Rice Dove by contributing to his campaign to fight the well-funded Inhofe. As Inhofe shoots it up with Cornyn in Oklahoma, we can be working to end his reign of incompetence in Washington.
