Via Atrios:

You know, Josh Burkeen is our rep down here in the southeast area. He lives in Colgate and travels out of Atoka. He was telling me lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in southeast Oklahoma that they'll only let one girl go to the bathroom. Now think about it. Think about that issue. How is it that that's happened to us?" -

This is Tom Coburn speaking, the Republican candidate for senator from Oklahoma. Funny. I imagine long lines of cross-legged girls standing in line, waiting, waiting...

But there is something not-so-funny beneath this blustering. Something a little scary and paranoid, hmh?
