Um ... wow?

In the 'I Can't Believe This Is Real' category, we've got a comic book by Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart who is using it as a handout piece in his reelection bid.

Obviously, it's juvenille, offensive and so absurdly comical you keep scanning the pages looking for a tag from The Onion, but more than that it doesn't really do a good job in actually promoting Rinehart's record. In fact, all I really know about him is that he supported Veterans' Appreciation Month and fought to keep the cross at the community's fairgrounds. That, and he repeatedly misspells pedophile.

Well, he seems a bit obsessed with Greek and Roman imagery. Of course the gay boyscout leaders will dress like Petrocles and drag the Weblos kicking and screaming into the woods . . .

Living in Athens it's easy to forget how well some of this stuff actually plays in middle-America red states.

His comic book might be more effective if he actually spelled everything correctly!

I see that David Hamilton didn't get criticized for HIS misspelling. Oh right, he supports the gay agenda, so there's no reason to go after him for petty garbage like that. Right?

Hamilton's (mis)spelling on a blog is in a bit of a different category from the misspelling on a political pamphlet designed to get people to vote for you -- unless you are going for the idiot vote. Oh, wait a minute...

What did I misspell? Oh wait, it's "Webelos." Can you misspell something that isn't technically a word?

Worked hard for that Grammar Merit Badge didn't ya?
