Filmmaker not warming up to Oklahoma's Inhofe



Anyone familiar with the work of unapologetically liberal filmmaker Michael Moore ("Fahrenheit 9/11," "Bowling for Columbine") could guess the Oscar winner isn't likely to ever be a BFF with Sen. Jim Inhofe, but now we have proof.

In his new book, "Mike's Election Guide 2008," Moore outlines 12 Senate seats he thinks the Democrats can win. The race between Republican Inhofe and his Democratic challenger, Andrew Rice, is listed as one of them.

"There is no delicate way to describe the insanity that lives inside the mind of "¦ Inhofe," Moore writes. "With one hand he makes a fist and loudly proclaims that global warming is not caused by humans. With the other hand he accepts hundreds of thousands of dollars from the oil and gas industry."

As they say on the infomercials: But, wait! There's more! Moore goes on to call Inhofe's views on marriage, sexuality and education as "equally antediluvian." On Inhofe's now-infamous quote that no one "in the recorded history of our family" has ever had "a divorce or any kind of homosexual relationship," Moore answers with the rhetorical "Isn't that nice!"
