Political Idiocy Week, #-1
In other words, Oklahomans are planning to give arms, ammunition, and explosives to the same sort of people that blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City just 15 years ago.
Some people in Oklahoma are apparently too stupid to remember back that far.
Or maybe, like Virginia governor Bob McDonnell, they're remembering as far back as 1861, when treason and armed rebellion against a lawfully-elected president was fashionable in certain quarters of our republic.
Plus, given their opposition to health care, what is the new militia's rallying cry going to be? You can just see them putting their heads together to decide on a slogan.
"'You can stop cramming health care down our throats when you pry it out of our . . . ' ---oh wait, that doesn't make any sense."
"'We demand that insurance companies have the right to refuse us!' ---oops, that doesn't sound quite right, either."
"'Keep the government's hands off our Medicare!' ---oh snap, I don't think that's quite right."
"'If our children get in accidents, we demand that you let them die!'"
Umm, yeah, that'll work.
