Mocking Oklahoma

By Byron LaMasters

I'm a good sport about having BOR in Crimson and Cream this week. I'm not going to complain. We'll be back in burnt orange on Wednesday night, but I do think that it's only fair to spend each of these three days with at least one post a day mocking Oklahomans. Today's victim? It should come as no surprise... Tom Coburn (heck, he just might be tomorrow and Wednesday's victim, too!).

The man is obsessed with lesbianism. Atrios has the latest of Coburn on the issue:

Rampant Lesbianism

Listen to the Republican candidate for senator from Oklahoma say this:

You know, Josh Burkeen is our rep down here in the southeast area. He lives in Colgate and travels out of Atoka. He was telling me lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in southeast Oklahoma that they’ll only let one girl go to the bathroom. Now think about it. Think about that issue. How is it that that’s happened to us?" - Tom Coburn, 8/31/04

Only in Oklahoma...

Update: The Carson campaign had this to say about Coburn's statement:

"This is one in a long line of outrageous statements Tom Coburn has made during the course of this campaign," said Carson for Senate spokesman Brad Luna. "As Tom Coburn continues on his own far out personal agenda, Congressman Carson will continue fighting for the people of Oklahoma. We deserve a Senator who's focused on creating good paying jobs in Okahoma, fighting for road money to improve our state's infrastructure, and trying to lower skyrocketing health care costs -- not someone who is focused on this type of crazy nonsense."

There is an unusual degree of concern about same-sex anything up this way . . . and we have a state questionn regarding gay marriage . . . and there is a whispering campaign against Brad Carson about sexual prefs . . . yep, it is like that line of Lou Gossett's from AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN: "Ain't but two things from Oklahoma, boy, and that's steers and . . . "

No that you guys do much better down there in Bushland.

I'd really like to see some evidence to back this up. Wrap your mind around this- these young girls are so enthralled with "lesbianism" (an ideology I can embrace) that they are sneaking into public school bathrooms to have sex with one another. I call bullshit on this one.

Then again, this explains Oklhoma boys' infatuation with farm animals.

In other words- Oklahoma Sucks.

Are you calling bullshit on the quote, or on Coburn's facts to support the quote? I've heard the tape. That's him, no doubt.

As to the facts, I'm waiting to see if "Girls Gone Wild" has a Poteau/Idabel/McAlestar edition . . .

Posted by: Keith G at October 11, 2004 03:22 PM

Oh, I'd believe that Coburn will say anything. I'm calling bullshit on schools having to take extreme counter-sapphic policies.

Nice to see those Sooner colors.

BTW, hasn't Coburn moved back into the lead in Oklahoma in some polls?

Surely the Carson people can drag up at least one more patient to claim malpractice before election day. I mean, the man's practiced a LONG time. :)
