It can't happen here

No way anyone will recall Oklahoma's governor, Brad Henry:

Oklahoma law doesn't allow for the recall of elected state officials. He could be "ousted", a procedure the Attorney General handles for neglect of duty, public intoxication or a criminal conviction. On the city level — recalls are possible, for all elected officials — including the mayor and city council.

Mike from OkieDoke, from whom I pilfered this story, comments:

Ousted for public intoxication? I hope that doesn't apply to all our elected officials. Enforcing that could get to be quite expensive.

They'd have to hire someone just to follow Carroll Fisher around.
