Building an igloo is now a "radical right-wing" prank
So it seems someone decided to poke fun at all the "global warming" that's been hitting the Washington D.C. area lately.
In the wake of a second massive blizzard to hit the region, the family of Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) built an igloo near the U.S. Capital building, photos of which the Senator posted on his Facebook page along with signs saying “AL GORE’S NEW HOME!” and “HONK IF YOU (LOVE) GLOBAL WARMING.”
Naturally, the humorless Left couldn't stand to see anything so...so radical as (gasp) building an igloo. Brad Johnson, who blogs for the liberal Center American Progress, criticized the prank and tagged it in the category of “Radical Right-Wing Agenda.”
Apparently Mr. Johnson considers it much more evil to build an (environmentally green) igloo and post a couple signs, than to build an enormous home in Tennessee that uses nearly twenty times as much energy as the average American household (Al Gore's home).
The Left had better be careful how much it criticizes igloos. If they have their way, snow structures will be the Homes of the Future for millions of impoverished citizens who live in the north.
