Here we go again

Once more, I'm embarrassed to live in Oklahoma:

Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma has vowed for the second straight year not to march in a Tulsa parade because organizers are calling it a "holiday" event as opposed to a "Christmas" one.

"Last year, the forces of political correctness removed the word 'Christmas' and replaced it with 'Holiday' instead," he said,
according to the Tulsa World. "I am deeply saddened and disappointed by this change."

Senator Inhofe, don't you have more important things to be "deeply saddened and disappointed" about?

(I found the information here.)


  1. Exactly.
    I personally don't give a rat's ass what they call it. Most everyone refers to the parade as the Christmas parade.. although in years past attending.. I don't recall many floats, etc, reflecting Christ. wtf.
    Why not "Winter Solstice Parade"?:^)
    Tulsa is not home to Christians only, will folks ever get that? meh.
    I'd like to dock Inhofe's pay for this kind of crap he pulls and who cares if he's in the parade or not? oh wah. what an ego.
    hmmmm. talk about having something 'crammed down our throat', and they have issues with health care reform?
    and repealing DADT?
    gee. what's wrong with this whole picture?

    I am embarrassed to BE from Oklahoma for exactly the reasons you stated Ellie...HOW pathetic!!!!

    You should move to California with all us fruits, nuts and flakes...where more people think like us. It's WAAAAAAAY more fun.

    So sorry you have to put up with that stupid bullshit!

  3. This whole thing showed up on Monday night's episode of 'The Daily Show' and Jon Stewart made some very salient points in his own tongue-in-cheek quirky way. Definitely worth watching.
