I saw this last week, trolling through the political thickets on the "internets", and was reminded of it reading Jane Smiley (so this counts as bookish) here.
Her column mentions Oklahoma Republican Senator James Inhofe in the context of his state and Texas next door, which are currently in the grip of a severe drought.
Smiley wonders about the future as it relates to global warming.
This matters because Senator Inhofe has been a more than willing advocate for global warming deniers for years and sparred with Al Gore on his return to testify before a committee on global warming last week in the Senate.
Crooks and Liars has the video, and California Senator Barbara Boxer is my new hero.
The video requires no explanation at all.
