Senator Cal Hobson, who presides over the upper house in the Oklahoma legislature, has come under fire for an item in his regular column in the Purcell Register, in which he comes off as embarrassingly star-struck. The star in question is Danny Glover, who has been coming up with some really preposterous statements of his own of late.
The state GOP has called on Hobson to apologize for sucking up to Glover, a notion flogged by Cam Edwards on his morning show today, further evidence that the smaller the teapot, the bigger the tempest.
Does Cal Hobson owe me an explanation? Yes. He owes me an explanation of why the state's been on this spending spree for the past few years, and how we got into this half-billion dollar hole, and why the legislature was even thinking about adjourning a week early this year. As for what he thinks about Danny Glover geez, aren't we getting too old for this shit?
