Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., has never been one to bite his tongue. Sometimes, that's an admirable quality in a person, but Inhofe might want to learn to rein himself in just a little bit.

For example: Responding to the speech President Obama gave from Cairo on Thursday, Inhofe said of the president, "I just don't know whose side he's on." He called the speech itself "un-American," reportedly because Obama didn't go after Iran enough and termed the invasion of Iraq "a war of choice."

According to the Oklahoman, Inhofe also said, "There has never been a documented case of torture at Guantánamo."
