Edmond House Candidate’s walk card accurately portrays GOP views on women…

The handsome squirt who looks like he once tried to sell your dad insurance is Edmond resident Brad Martin.

Brad is a Republican candidate for House District 82. He emerged from a crowded field in the June election to face prohibitive favorite Nicole Miller in the August 28th runoff.

Although his website doesn't really delve into too many issues, Martin appears to be your typical conservative establishment Oklahoma Republican. He's white, lives in Edmond, graduated from SNU, and based on his political walk card, he doesn't have time to care about the issues facing Oklahoma women or educators.

Check this out:

Yep. "Brad Martin will lead the fight to ensure success for Oklahoma's schools... by texting his buddies about fantasy football while some female teacher blabbers about her silly problems."

In all honesty, I'm not 100% sure what type of device Brad is looking at. It could be his phone or it could be a phaser, either way, is that the best photograph they could come up with? I know listening to the voices and concerns of women has never been a strength or priority of GOP political candidates, but at least use the pic where Brad is mansplaining to the woman about how and why the gender pay gap really isn't that big of an issue.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how or what Brad does to respond to this. I wouldn't be surprised if he doubles-down, and for his next walk card, uses a photo of him watching his wife make him a sandwich. GOP voters who care about "traditional values" will really like that one. He could also go the other route and use a photo of him listening to renown local bigot nutjob Carol Hefner. She just held a fundraiser for him last night:
