NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:
Debra C. asks a rhetorical, but inane, question in Sunday’s paper: “Who does Sen. Inhofe represent?”
She said she can’t figure out who his constituents are, then proceeds to list who she knows they’re not.
Of course, she does surmise that upper income men and the oil/gas industry are the main culprits.
Imagine the state of Oklahoma leaning toward the oil/gas industry.
She mentions the “nonpartisan” votesmart.org. as a source which I have to assume she uses for her facts. They could probably tell her that Inhofe’s been in Washington forever and even if he does occasionally land on the wrong runway he can probably stay as long as he wants. She could also factor in that no Democrat since Boren has been elected in a statewide Senate race.
Oh, I voted for Inhofe as many times as legally possible and my wife can tell you I’m hardly “upper income.”
