Mary Fallin Forgets President’s Forum Isn’t Staged Townhall

September 23rd, 2010at 07:29am Posted by Eli

I can only assume that Oklahoma Republican gubernatorial candidate Mary Fallin forgot that she wasn’t at one of those fake events where candidates get to pick the attendees…

Yesterday the Jim Thorpe Museum was host to the annual President’s Forum, a gathering of University and College Presidents, the Board of Regents, and a handful of other dignitaries and invited guests.  Speaking before this distinguished audience were the two candidates for governor, Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins, and Congresswoman Mary Fallin.  The format for the event was that Fallin would first deliver remarks, then take questions, and then Askins would do the same.

However, just before she was to begin, Fallin made a strange request of the event organizers; she didn’t want the Lieutenant Governor in the room while she spoke.  Nor did she want any of Jari’s staff in the room.  In fact, she even scanned the room for faces that might be unfriendly, to see who else she should have ejected.  Apparently she didn’t like the look on State Senator Mike Morgan’s face, because she told the event organizers she would not take the podium until he had left the room.

Seriously?  This is crazy batshit paranoid stuff.  I guess Fallin wants to make sure she locks up that I-sure-do-miss-Dubya vote.
