WSJ notes a new scale, created by blogger Lou Grinzo, that measures how delusional or detached from reality a person is. A 100 on the Inhofe Scale, Grinzo says, is commensurate with the sort of willful delusion he says is contained in Inhofe’s “greatest hoax” speech. “Just to be clear, this is a measurement of detachment from widely accepted reality, not a measure of how much the speaker disagrees with me,” Grinzo writes.

UPDATE: Al Gore shares his thoughts on his hearings yesterday on his blog.

UPDATE II: Inhofe even loses National Review’s John Podhoretz.
