Der Spiegel reporter calls Inhofe ‘ridiculous’ at Copenhagen summit

Inhofe delivered -- sort of -- on his promise Thursday, flying into Copenhagen for a two-hour visit to find himself received by "a few aides and a single reporter," according to Politico.

The senator's aides quickly set up an impromptu press conference at the top of a staircase in the Bella Center, where the Republican declared that climate change is a fraud perpetuated by the "Hollywood elite" -- a claim so outlandish to the international journalists in attendance that one German reporter editorialized directly to Inhofe's face and said, "You're ridiculous."...........

But, if you're wondering, the headline reads "Summit Fiasco: Obama's Policy Pleases the Americans" and the rest of the article would seem to indicate that the editors are, um, disappointed in the extreme, both in our President and in us.
