Today, Oklahoma Republicans from Broken Bow to Beaver, Miami to Altus, and Wayne to Payne will go to the polls and vote for which undesirable candidate they would like to see represent their party in November's upcoming general election. According to various polls, the leading candidate in the Sooner state is Rick Santorum. And he should be. He fucking adopted us.

From Yahoo:

During a rally at a church near Tulsa on Sunday night, Santorum joked that since Pennsylvania--where he served in Congress from 1995 to 2007--was not competing in the Republican primary cycle until April, he felt most at home in Oklahoma.

"I don't have my home state up on Tuesday like Congressman Gingrich or Gov. Romney, though Gov. Romney has about five home states--I don't know how that works--but I don't live that kind of life," Santorum said. "I have one home state. But I can tell you that if I feel like if I have any home state up on Super Tuesday, it's here in Oklahoma."

"Get this brushfire going," Santorum told the hundreds of supporters who filled the church gymnasium Sunday night. "I saw a few brushfires on my way over. ... We need another kind of brushfire from here in the heartland."

I don't really have a problem with this. If any candidate is going to adopt our state, it might as well be Rick Santorum. He thinks like a wacko Oklahoma Republican, acts like a wacko Oklahoma Republican and probably has sex like a wacko Oklahoma Republican (missionary position with eyes closed). Hell, he even prayed with State Reps Sally Kern and Mike Reynolds at his recent stop in Oklahoma City.

Here are a couple of photos we found over at RedDirtReport.com:

Screw it. Lets go ahead and endorse this guy for president. Sure, some of his ideas and "values" are borderline insane, but this is probably the closest we'll ever get to having an Oklahoman in the White House. Plus, we'll get to make a bunch of frothy Santorum jokes. I could live with that.
