The denunciations ranged anywhere from declaring such a decision "insanity" to suggesting that the Obama administration "nearly allowed this terrorist to get away." In reality, there is no evidence that trying Ghailani in a military court would have produced a more severe verdict. Indeed, whereas terrorists tried in military commissions have served relatively short prison sentences, those tried in criminal courts have faced significantly longer prison terms.

Sen. Inhofe Gets It Wrong On "Jackasses," "Global Warming Alarmism"

During a Senate Floor speech on March 15, 2010, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) embarked on a long, meandering journey smearing Al Gore, climate scientists, and clean energy.
