This is actually a sad day for me.
Throughout my voting history I have consistently voted democrat with one exception: Mary Fallin (R-OK).
I have spoken to her face-to-face on a number of occasions. As Lieutenant Governor she pushed initiatives that were extremely beneficial to the Great State of Oklahoma. I have always had great respect and admiration for Congresswoman Fallin.
She is a member of Sarah Palin’s “Truth Squad” which is anything but. Twice yesterday I heard her speak about the “lipstick on a pig” load of bull that the McCain-Palin campaign initiated. She said that “the people” thought that Sen. Obama was talking about Palin, but would not, even when pressed, say that she herself thought that.
Her main response to all of this was, basically, “Well, the Democrats did it first.”
Mary, oh Mary, DON’T HAND ME THAT CROCK!!! You are, in short, insulting the intellect of the great people of the Great State of Oklahoma. We know better! You should be ashamed of yourself for feeding this lie. I, for sure, am ashamed of you.
My vote and my support will be seriously reconsidered during your next election. I’ve met you, I’ve looked into your eyes, and I am certain that you, of all people, are above this. I’m begging you, please prove me right
