I have to admit, I really don’t understand what state GOP chairman Gary Jones stands to gain by doing this:
Republican Party Chairman Gary Jones called upon Democrat Senators to follow Governor Henry’s lead … in making public their preferences for President of the United States.
Henry, you’ll remember, endorsed Barack Obama. Jones apparently wants all these Democrats on the record:
“Oklahoma voters deserve to know who their Democrat Senators and aspiring Senators will support. Does Nancy Riley support Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton? Will Charlie Laster follow the lead of his friend from Shawnee and throw his support to Obama? Who can the voters of southeastern Oklahoma expect Richard Lerblance to support?” Jones asked. “I hardly believe either Clinton or Obama reflects the conservative, pro-family, pro-Second Amendment values of that region. Who will it be, Senator Lerblance?”
What’s it to you, Gary Jones? If you don’t believe there’s a dime’s worth of difference between Clinton and Obama*, why do you think Senator Lerblance should worry about it?
This is standard-issue GOP ZOMGLIBRULS!!1! blather. It doesn’t get any less tiresome with repetition.
* I calculate the difference at 7 cents, plus or minus a couple of mills.
