A battle for High Commander of the Asshat Armada

Saw this on Taegan Goddard's Politcal Wire...

"I don't have to read it, or know what's in it. I'm going to oppose it anyways."

-- Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), on heath care reform

Whaa, a Republican that thinks he doesn't have to read? Surprising.

So, my question is this: Is Inhofe more worthy of the title "Worst Senator in America"? I had always penciled in John Cornyn for this, but I'll be damned if Inhofe's stock hasn't been rising lately.

I keep coming back to that scene in Mel Brooks' History of World where the Roman Senate votes against aiding the common folk by voting "Fuck the poor!"
