Down that old gavel road

The Oklahoman has been sharply critical — or sometimes, not so sharply critical — of the proceedings of this year’s legislative session. This bit from Sunday’s editorial, however, is definitely pointed:

In floor debate, the appropriation chairs of both chambers praised the process that produced the budget.

“We had the most open and transparent budget process in the history of this state,” said Rep. Leslie Osborn, R-Mustang.

“We’ve done a fantastic job this year of coming up with a budget,” said Sen. Kim David, R-Porter.

Those statements serve only to remind one why it’s a bad idea to let students grade their own homework.

Ouch.

Fortunately, both of them are Republicans, so there’s no chance that anyone is going to dump on the paper for picking on women in the legislature.

    Not to mention, everybody should pick on the female governor of this state. Mary Failin’, as they say.
