Political Doublespeak is Alive and Well

It is nice to know that politicians are still adept at the art of doublespeak. The latest example of this is from Senator James Inhofe (R-OK):

There is no evidence more visible that the American people are already rebelling against the far-left agenda than Senator Arlen Specter switching parties to become a Democrat [sic]. He did this for one reason, and that is his advisers told him he couldn’t retain his Senate seat as a Republican. In other words, the same people who supported Senator Specter six years ago have soundly rejected him today.

I’m stunned.

    To this day I have no idea how inhofe keeps his seat. I’ve lived in OK for 14 years and dont think I’ve ever met anyone who likes him.
