    Even a poor lawyer could shoot that one down pretty quickly.

    This just proves that Inhofe believes himself to be a god. "The Senator of No" is so wrapped up in his own petty little world, he is unwilling and unable to see the world as it is.

    well not like they can press any legal charges against him while the senate is in session. He is protected against that.
    This is sad because really it is not like he had an emergency and had to do the landing but instead was just being lazy and not wanting to land somewhere else.

    It speaks volumes about him and as far as I am concerned about the rest of the members of congress it shows that they think they are better than everyone else and they can do what ever they want.

    Typical republican attitude, so high up they don't care about the people on the ground. And this is just a literal demonstration of that.

    He disregarded NOTAMs, the indicator, and the equipment on the closed runway - his ticket should have been pulled.

    Dear The FAA. Please for the love of everything remove his pilots license, and stop him getting near the cockpit of anything that can fly. Including Gliders. Anyone who can ignore a closed runway doesn't deserve to be remotely close to being in a cockpit. I wonder if this idiot would drive down a closed bit of Interstate and just hop around the workers there too :rolleyes:
