In today’s paper mention was made of an Oklahoma politician named Brent Rinehart who had mailed out a “comic book” so crudely drawn and bigoted that well, you just have to experience it for yourself.

This piece of literature is so breathtakingly badly drawn that I was left to conclude that it was done by a sixth-grader, perhaps because all the seventh-grade artists were at sleepaway camp.

Then there’s the political “wisdom” contained therein: “Brent voted to remove homosexual references in the county handbook but it was voted down by the good ol’ boys.” He’s also concerned about “pedaphiles, polygamists and homosexuals who practice anal sodomy.”  Apparently, non-anal sodomy is OK. Or, maybe anal sodomy is OK as long as the participants are straight.

I don’t know…the phrase, “tobacco-chewing moron” keeps coming to mind.
