State House Formally Reprimands Oklahoma City Republican Rep. Sally Kern

Sally Kern's outmoded ideas were the subject of disciplinary action in Oklahoma City today when the state House of Representatives voted to reprimand the conservative Republican lawmaker.

For those of you keeping score at home, Rep. Kern last week argued against affirmative action by claiming that some Oklahoma citizens (African Americans) are lazy and other citizens (women) just want to stay home and have babies. 

Ah, the Good Ole Days, when Kern was young and all those trouble-making minorities and uppity women stayed out of the way and let the white men run things.

Kern seems to represent the Taliban wing of the Oklahoma Republican Party. She keeps finding threats to public order and morality in everything that's not approved by her brand of religion.

Turns out, that's a lot—seemingly, most everything that's happened since the 1950s.

BTW, as a woman who doesn't work as hard as a man, is she forfeiting part of her state salary?
