“Lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in southeast Oklahoma that they’ll only let one girl go to the bathroom. Now think about it. Think about that issue.” – Senator-elect Tom Coburn
I bet this guy is going to be the new face of the GOP. Coburn, a doctor who has a past history of sterilizing “lots” of underage girls, has apparently set his sights on the lesbian schoolgirls of southeast Oklahoma. Now, one might wonder: “What is the deal here?” but if you check out maps of the state showing which counties voted for and against him, you can see that southeast Oklahoma is nearly entirely blue, while the other half of the state is red.
He is raising this issue, these are real quotes. Although this was floundered previously, maoman has apparently missed: 1) that this information is correct; 2) that it is a genuine concern to Americans that new cultural wars appear to be erupting in the wake of a very divisive election; 3) that this guy appears to be taking the lead on the culture-war issues; and 4) he’s ready and willing to spread ridiculous information about places just because they didn’t vote for him. If this is the tone being set, we are in a lot of trouble. It would seem that his penchant for sterilizing underage girls may be a good indicator of the dispassionate will and lack of ethics that this guy will bring to the fight.
