It would seem Oklahoma Commissioner Brent Rinehart is going all out in an attempt to get re-elected county commissioner. He’s even gone as far as mailing out his campaign manifesto in the form of a comic. Sounds like a great idea until you discover Rinehart is a fundamentalist bigot who wants to impose his Christian sense of morality on everyone else. He also seems to be wholly obsessed with the gay sex.
Rinehart says the comic strip took him two months to script out and is “more or less a story of my experiences of the last four years of being the county commissioner of District 2.” No one seems to have noted how long it took Shane Suiters to pen the 16 page masterpiece.
Keith Gaddie, a University of Oklahoma political science professor, called the book “one of the strangest things” he’d ever seen.
“I’ve never seen a comic book with the phrase ‘anal sodomy’ in it before. That was a new one for me.”
Regardless of my personal feelings about this ass-obsessed clown, I’m not knocking Rinehart’s comic book approach at all. Far from it, I think its a novel idea that can have excellent results when done politely and with an actual sense of humor, like Kansas pro-education, pro-science candidate Sean Tevis did for his campaign.
