An Oklahoman Apologizes for Oklahoma's Politicians

Dear Americans,

On behalf of the great state of Oklahoma I want to take this opportunity to apologize. Wednesday evening, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart interviewed our Senator Ralph Shorty, the architect of the Oklahoma Personhood bill intended to declare a fertilized egg a person. Shorty explained that he couldn't add Senator Constance Johnson's "Every Sperm is Sacred" Amendment to his bill controlling women's bodies, because her amendment was an effort to control men's bodies. Senator Shorty will control women's bodies, but control of men's bodies Is. Not. Allowed. I promise you not all of our elected officials are this hypocritical, and most Oklahomans absolutely are not.

While I'm at it, I also want to apologize for all those oil companies encouraging Sen. Inhofe to declare global climate change is fake. You see, Oklahoma is where the oil comes from. We horde it like dominated squirrels so when we suck the Middle East dry everyone at home becomes a billionaire. I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I'm so, so sorry about Senator Sally Kern. I really don't know what her problem is. She just seems to hate it when people are happy. I would psychoanalyze her, but she's blocked me from asking these questions on Twitter. To be fair, though, she's originally from Arkansas, so maybe that's what it is.

I apologize to Arkansas for that last remark. You're not any better or worse.

5. I called Senator Johnson's office when the sacred sperm amendment first came out.

I shocked her staff member when I told her I was calling from clear across the country as they had no idea (at that time) that it was resonating beyond the borders of Oklahoma. When I mentioned I would be visiting OKC in the near future she asked me to come in and introduce myself and meet the senator.

I love Oklahoma. I lived there for many years and plan to return there 'cause they need good Dems.

7. That segment was GREAT.

Shorty got caught using his own bullshit argument against himself. It was EPIC.
But on behalf of Oklahomans, I apologize too. I didn't vote for these morons.
