OKLAHOMA CITY – Are you ready for the political equivalent of the “cola wars” of the 1980s? Remember those? Coke vs. Pepsi? Everyone knows soda pop tastes mighty good in the here and now but are bad for you in the long run. The same goes for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the two guys who will be selling you a hot bag of lies again tonight at the second presidential debate.
And Barry? He feels "fabulous!"
So, why is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton taking the heat for the half-witted president over the Benghazi debacle? It’s curious. Does he have something on her? Vice versa? It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Old Nixon crony Pat Buchanan is calling it the “Benghazi cover-up.”
Did you happen to catch Sen. Tom Coburn’s “Wastebook 2012”? Here’s just a sample of some of the things cranky Coburn notes: “Perhaps nothing demonstrates just how out of touch Washington is more than the $300,000 USDA is spending to tell Americans to eat caviar, one fo the world’s most expensive delicacies, at a time when millions of Americans are struggling just to put the basics on the family dinner table. “Let them eat caviar!” indeed!
And at the Oklahoma Gazette, in the ever-amusing “Chicken Fried News” section, they note a recent poll that showed how Oklahoma City was the fourth most promiscuous city in the country. What’s equally amusing is that Men’s Health magazine noted in 2010 that OKC is also the third most religious city in the country.
Make of that what you will.
