Rep. Sally Kern, poster child (in more ways than one) for Oklahoma ignorance and intolerance, was nowhere to be found Tuesday when some 300 protesters showed up at the state capitol Tuesday to meet with the anti-gay legislator.
The protesters went to Kern's office after an audiotape of her anti-gay remarks was posted earlier this month on YouTube. Kern's remarks have been widely criticized in Oklahoma and elsewhere (see AT's earlier postings).
But not to worry. The Tulsa World reports today that Kern is willing to meet with a few of the demonstrators. The money quote: "I'd have no problem meeting with them next week when I have my lawyer," Kern said.
Really? A lawyer?
Our question: How does that square with The Absolute Truth that Kern presumes to speak? Or maybe that's the problem: it doesn't.
