The land of Bibles and bigots


Robin Meyers

Pulling up behind an enormous red pickup truck a few weeks before the election, I couldn’t help but notice a huge portrait of President Obama that covered most of the tailgate, and just beneath this unflattering image, in big block letters, was this question: “Does this ass make my truck look big?” Coming closer, I saw that the driver was a Marine, and these were his sentiments about his commander in chief.

Cliff hanger


Gazette staff
Now that the dust has settled with the averted fiscal cliff, there are dubious Beltway winners and losers, but among the unequivocal winners is Oklahoma's own U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Moore. Early on, he urged his Republican colleagues to accept tax hikes on the wealthiest 2 percent and wait until spring to battle over spending cuts, and the political postmortems have been more than kind to him.

Here comes the judge


Gazette staff
Freshly appointed federal Judge Robert Bacharach has been receiving so much praise from lawmakers lately, it's enough to make you wonder why it took the Senate so darned long to confirm the Edmond resident to the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Frank gets clubbed


Gazette staff
The fiscally conservative Club for Growth is going RINO-hunting, and in its sights is “big government liberal” U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Cheyenne.

Marriage equality is up for grabs

Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. To me, the phrase — when applied to marriage — means “marriage equality,” both same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage.

Miracle on 23rd Street: a tax cut


Cal Hobson
With the exception of that most beloved Republican activity — the buying, selling, exchanging, concealing, cleaning, carrying, showing, stroking and shooting of guns — members of the party once led by Lincoln are now best known for their genetically driven obsession: cutting taxes anytime, anywhere, any size, for any reason or excuse.

Payback politics?


Gazette staff
Who knew weather had, as Stephen Colbert might say, a well-known political bias? That seemed to be the case last week as the tornado that leveled Moore also reignited a long-running debate in Washington, D.C., over federal spending for emergencies. Republicans say Democrats dress up emergency spending bills with unneeded extras, while Dems counter that Repubs don’t want to spend money for victims of natural disasters.

Touting marriage: Why knot?


Brandon Dutcher
Startling but true: Growing up in a stable, two-parent family is the exception, not the rule, for Oklahoma teenagers.
