Oklahoma County Commissioner: Satan Endorses My Republican Opponents

County commissions seem to attract the most colorful characters. I've criticized commissioners before (for example, in Perry County, Alabama and Blount County, Tennessee) but this guy takes the prize. Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart has created a comic book which he says is "more or less a story of my experiences of the last four years of being the county commissioner of District 2."

Toga-wearing gays, political figures, trench coat-clad henchmen, concerned residents and Rinehart round out the comic's cast.

"This is one of the strangest things I've ever seen," said Keith Gaddie, a political science professor at the University of Oklahoma. "I've never seen a comic book with the phrase 'anal sodomy' in it before. That was a new one for me."

Gaddie said comics were common political campaign tools decades ago, but not for today.

"He's pretty much grinding every ax he's got from his days in the county commission," Gaddie said. "In a way, it's a sophisticated piece."

In one sequence, Satan says: "If I can get the kids to believe homosexuality is normal!"

The angel replies: "Hey Satan, not with Brent around you won't!"

"The history of my office is that I do expose the homosexual agenda, and that it does exist in the state of Oklahoma, and my history also would show that I am very much opposed to the homosexual agenda," Rinehart said.

In the comic, Satan endorses Rinehart's opponents in the July 29 Republican primary for the District 2 county commissioner seat. The angel endorses Rinehart.

Repeat: Satan endorses Rinehart's primary election opponents---other Republicans---because they are part of the "homosexual agenda." Eeesh. Sometimes I'm not too sure about this local democracy thing.
