      That it's the tone of the condemnation of Oklahoma rather than the facts in the reporting, those are not in dispute. Whether it's intentional or otherwise, I have no idea. My objection to that kind of rhetoric is and always has been how Progressives in the south are tarred with the same brush they use on the baggers and those who voted for them. And it's just irrational, feel good hatred, isn't it? Most of the people rendering these opinions have never been to Texas, (other than that interminable drive through the state on I-10 or I-20 that one year), so they are entirely operating on stereotype. It's not worthy of Liberals to trade in bile and excrement aimed by prejudice and it disappoints the fuck out of me.
