DeMint Slams Gore and 'Warming' Hitting D.C.

Tuesday, 09 Feb 2010 11:26 PM

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., is using the snowstorm hitting Washington D.C. as an opportunity to make some points about former Vice President Al Gore and climate change.

The conservative senator took to Twitter on Tuesday amid reports that the area is due to receive another 10 to 20 inches of snow this week, according to The Hill.

DeMint tweeted: “It's going to keep snowing in DC until Al Gore cries ‘uncle.’”

Other conservatives have echoed DeMint's sentiments that the snowstorm should poke holes in evidence backing global warming.

The South Carolina senator was not the first Republican to use the snowstorm to make a political point, according to The Hill. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kansas, said that absence of votes in the House is a plus for taxpayers.
