run andrew run!!

It's hard to miss Oklahoma's two dangerously right wing senators, Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn. The first is an outspoken critic of the concept of climate change, owing no doubt to the fact that he's wedged so tightly up the asses of big oil he can't see the destruction of the earth all around him. The second is just a loose cannon garden variety Oklahoma lunatic, who once warned against marauding lesbian school girls in southeastern Oklahoma. Our senatorial field has been tightly held by these two fools for too long.

The great good news today is that Oklahoma State Senator Andrew Rice has announced he will run against Jim Inhofe in 2008. Hallelujah!! Here's a Rice bio; he'll be blogging live on DailyKos at 3 p.m. Wednesday. Drop by and say hello to Andrew and show him some love. He's a great guy and I plan to work my ass off to get this man elected. Can you even imagine Oklahoma with an intelligent Senator? It boggles the mind. I am so excited.

Thanks for the heads up about Andrew. I went over to ActBlue and donated. He was one of the "hot candidates".

Hope he can beat Inhofe.

NO, I cannot imagine OK with a "thinking" Senator....that would be I'll begin to watch this thanks to you....AND now. What can we do about Brownback and Mitch McConnell? I LOVE your writing.....inspiring and motivating to get off my ass and work for some change.

marauding lesbian school girls? Hmm, sounds promising.

mark ~ we take them out one asshole at a time. i think that howard dean's 50 state plan has been enormously effective in doing so and can only get better as we go along.

as jill said, ActBlue is also one means of people everywhere helping in one particular state ~ example being that people living anywhere can easily donate to andrew rice and support his campaign that way.

i am SO happy :-)

MC yeah. what a nutbag, but could be fun, yes?

Inhofe never ceases to amaze me - I'm so embarrassed to be from Oklahoma every time I hear him speak or read one of his quotes. Andrew Rice is also a member of the Oklahoma Food Coop - a great guy from what I understand.

grace, everything i've read about him makes me love him more and more. what a great guy. and surely even the hard core repugs in this state are sick of inhofe and his arrogance. hoping, hoping.
