    That Oklahoma, for all the mislabeling, is not a "Midwestern" state. It's in the South. Period. And many of its current elected officials are, unfortunately, straight out of the Old South.

    As a Southerner, Coburn's statement really upsets me--and makes me shake my head. As a North Carolinian, I can only say that it might have come straight from the mouth of our late senior senator, Jesse Helms.
