From the "We've All Got to Be Proud of Something" Department, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe whipped out a chart on the Senate floor Tuesday to illustrate a point he apparently thought was worth making: "As you see here, and I think this is maybe the most important prop we'll have during the entire debate, my wife and I have been married 47 years. We have 20 kids and grandkids. I'm really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we've never had a divorce or any kind of homosexual relationship."
