GOP Split: Gov. Fallin Blasts Far-right Critics as 'Uninformed'

You can't be too conservative in Oklahoma—there's always some far-right fringe types out there pushing Sooner pols further right.

That was the case yesterday in Tulsa when a handful of wingnuts turned out to protest the conservative leadership of Gov. Mary Fallin. But Fallin was having none of it, criticizing her critics as "uninformed" on health care. 

We rarely agree with the governor, but she sounds positively reasonable compared to the far-right know-nothings who protested Fallin's visit.

The Tulsa World story is on the GOP fuss is here.

Paul Krugman notes a new incident involving John Lott, pro-gun "intellectual", a darling of occasional AT commenter, Man of the West:

"John Lott first attracted notoriety with a pro-gun-ownership study nobody else could duplicate; his original data, he said, was destroyed by a hard disk crash. In the furious discussion that followed, one frequent contributor to discussion boards, ardently defending Lott, was someone named Mary Rosh, who claimed to have been Lott’s student and glowed with praise for his teaching.

"It eventually transpired that Mary Rosh was a pseudonym; her actual name was … John Lott.

"So now Lott has gone on the warpath against Chris Brown of Media Matters, accusing Brown of misquoting and misrepresenting a blog entry. And sure enough, the quote in Media Matters doesn’t match what the post says … now. However, Brown saved a screenshot of what it originally said, which matches his quote.

"So, it appears that Lott retroactively tried to put his original statement down the memory hole, then accused a critic of wronging him by quoting what he originally said. Now, that’s scholarship!"
