Yep, she dropped a sarcastic #hashtag journalism line! That’s harsh! I come from an era where TV news channels and personalities are supposed to pretend their competition doesn’t exist. In fact, I think there was a clause in the Ogle brothers' contract that the three of them could only be in the same room together during holidays and the family entmoot before fall harvest! Now we have Ali Meyer not only acknowledging Storme’s existence but also talking trash!
That's correct! The right-wing Christian podcaster who motivated and pushed Oklahoma lawmakers to pass moralist and judgemental anti-trans legislation cheated on his wife with an engaged woman, filmed their private encounters, was caught and then blackmailed over it! As our pal Gaylon Culver would say – Is This A Great State Or What?
With his campaign for State Public School Superintendant floundering, Ryan Walters hopped out of his SUV to film a blabbering instructional video in front of a whiteboard to help explain why sane, rational people shouldn't vote for him.
Yes, Comrades! The State School Superintendant candidate who wants to rid our schools of “leftist” propaganda wants to send teachers to mandatory “patriotic education training.”
Nothing “leftist” or “communist” or “fucking insane” about that, huh? I wonder if he got that idea after studying the teachings of Lenin, reading about China, or watching The Killing Fields on Prime Video.
Nothing says "Secure Our Schools" more than a bunch of fully-armed cops – and a shady mortgage banker – running through school hallways like a paramilitary group, looking for a bad guy – and possibly a couple of woke teachers – to take down with a hail of gunfire. How can you not feel extra safe sending your kid to school after seeing photos like that?
Although the debate was filled with its fair share of one-liners, gaffes, temper tantrums and technical difficulties, my favorite moment came before the debate event started when an Ogle Mole sent me this pic of a Swadley’s Catering van prominently parked in front of the debate venue.
Yep, the guy who is ultimately in charge of Oklahoma's IT security infrastructure and network security – and leads a division that "helps 189 agencies, affiliates and municipalities accomplish their daily missions" – fell for a classic case of Facebook copypasta.
If that doesn't tell you just about everything you need to know about the fine folks Stitt's appointed to run our state government, I'm not sure what else does.
