Tetched by Teh Gay
The Oklahoman this morning had a story on House District 88 winner Al McAffrey, and titled it Gay legislator not expected to push agenda.

Oh. Right. That agenda. What was I thinking? (And how come everyone else has a "platform" or a "values statement," but gay candidates have an "agenda"?)

Have you ever heard of anyone running as a straight candidate?
Sssh. Don't give Thad Balkman any ideas.Posted at 5:48 PM to Soonerland
