Sen. Inhofe To Dems: "Get A life. You Lost. I Won."

November 09, 2009 5:33 pm ET — Matt Finkelstein

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is playing dirty as he attempts to kill clean energy legislation making its way through Congress. 

Last week, Inhofe led Republicans on the Environment and Public Works Committee in boycotting the markup of the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act, introduced by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and John Kerry (D-MA). Today, the notorious climate change denier is claiming victory and had a not-so-subtle message for Boxer and Kerry -- "Get a life. You lost. I won."

The Ada Evening News reports:

Inhofe said he still intends to attend the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference.

"I'm always the spoiler at this thing. Last night I was on the Larry Kudlow show. He said, 'Inhofe is the one-man truth squad going to Copenhagen.' So when Barbara Boxer, John Kerry and all the left get up there and say, 'Yes. We're going to pass a global warming bill,' I will be able to stand up and say, 'No, it's over. Get a life. You lost. I won,'" Inhofe said.

Inhofe previously announced that he will lead a "truth squad" to Copenhagen next month, in order to undermine the US government in international negotiations.  "I want to make sure that those attending the Copenhagen conference know what is really happening in the United States Senate," he said.
