I guess the current Governor of Oklahoma isn't batshit crazy enough.

Former Oklahoma state Sen. Randy Brogdon (R) announced his plans to run for governor of the Sooner State, posing the first GOP challenge to current Gov. Mary Fallin.

On Wednesday, Brogdon said on his website he will file the necessary paperwork to run for governor in 2014, saying he believes "Constitutional Conservative leadership is needed in the Governor’s office."

"Government is too big and too powerful and we all know it. It spends too much, borrows too much, taxes too much, regulates too much and snoops too much," Brogdon wrote. "We are in the fight of our lives for liberty, and I feel morally obligated to lead that fight on behalf of Oklahoma families."

Brogdon lost to Fallin in the 2010 GOP gubernatorial primary. He went on to endorse his former rival despite earlier criticisms of her "liberal compromises."

Someone didn't learn from the 2010 primary and needs to get his ego leveled again.

In 2007, he was the recipient of the Phyllis Schlafly Oklahoma Eagle Award for his consistent support of Constitutional Conservative legislation.

indicated by a line drawn from the corner of the eye back (which should be the top of the ear) and a line drawn from the bottom of the nose back (which should be the bottom of the ear). oversized ears were an indication of serious health problems, according to that bit of wisdom. either that, or the person was more than a bit weird.
