    Inhofe agreed to and completed a "program of remedial training" in place of legal action in December of 2010, according to an FAA report, after he landed his plane at Cameron County Airport in South Texas last October on a closed runway marked with a large X. According to the report, Inhofe saw the X but "still elected to land avoiding the men and equipment on the runway."

    A perfect example or a republican politician expresshig his personal responsibility.

    My favorite part is where he still denies that he did anything wrong.
