WHO gets offended by cartoons, aside from Barack Obama and Muslim extremists?

Brent Rinehart is an Oklahoma County Commissioner. He is campaigning for reelection.

As reported, he’s been accused of “abusing his office for personal gain”, and is due to go on trial this autumn on felony campaign finance charges.

But it’s not him. If you want to blame somone, blame the homosexuals, liberals and good ol’ boys. (What no Jews? – Ed). Rinehart puts his case in a comic book he’s sending out to voters. he wrote it himself.

“It’s more or less a story of my experiences of the last four years of being the county commissioner of District 2,” Rinehart tells The Oklahoman.

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.”

Gaddie said comics were common political campaign tools decades ago, but not today. “He’s pretty much grinding every ax he’s got from his days in the county commission,” Gaddie said. “In a way, it’s a sophisticated piece.”

The strip, which Rinehart said took him two months to write, opens with a proclamation that Rinehart is a Republican and Christian who stands up to “liberal good ol’ boys” at the county courthouse.

“I do not know who the good ol’ boys at the courthouse are,” said County Assessor Leonard Sullivan, a Republican who has had public disagreements with Rinehart.

“I’ve really encouraged him on more than one occasion to get professional help. He really needs it,” said Sullivan, who is not depicted in the comic.

Can’t wait to see his New Yorker cover…
