Tulsa County Republicans will meet February 21 for their county convention and it promises to be, well, different.
The Tulsa World reports that a fight is brewing in the Oklahoma GOP between the "mainline" Republicans and the wingnut branch, also called the Ron Paul faction.
In Tulsa, the wingnuts are represented by Sally Bell, recent loser in the county commission race. Despite that loss (and in a heavily Republican county, no less), Bell is running for chair of the county GOP.
"She appears to have the backing of a former Tulsa city councilor, Chris Medlock," the World reported. Medlock, you may remember, left the council and went on to lose a race for mayor and the state legislature.
Bell, of local amusement park fame, is well known for her antiquated political views. For one thing, Bell is a proud John Bircher, still hoping to defeat the rising influence of Mao, Stalin, Fidel and—well, Fred Harris—among Oklahoma school children. It's so-o-o-o scary!
We're with you Sally. If this were 1959, you'd be a winner. Too bad you and the ole gang are just about 50 years out of date.
