It’s going to be another great a four years.
In what can only be interpreted as a symbolic statement to how she crushed Joe Dorman, Mary Fallin drove a tank over an old, beat up car on Friday.
She also fired a machine gun.
It was all part of the grand opening celebrations for the new Wilshire Gun. It’s the new gun range near Nichols Hills that has a restaurant and bar on premises.
A large crowd gathered at the Wilshire Gun grand opening Friday to watch Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin drive a tank over an old car.
The stunt kicked off the three-day opening celebration, as Wilshire Gun becomes the first shooting range in the state to sell alcohol.
“Well it was interesting being able to ride in this tank and crush a car, and what an exciting way to open up the Wilshire Gun range today,” Fallin said. “It’s a great new edition to Oklahoma City and it’s creating jobs.”
Fallin said having a place that teaches gun safety is an important addition to the community.
“Having the ability to have meeting spaces where people can learn about gun safety and the appropriate handling of firearms, which is also a very important part of gun ownership,” Fallin said.
Yes, outside of a nursery or fireworks stand, there’s no better place to learn about gun safety and the appropriate handling of firearms than a gun range that serves alcohol. Because you know, alcohol helps you retain information and improve decision making.
There are plenty of ridiculous images from the event. My two favorites were tweeted by Hank from Family Guy impersonator Morgan Chesky:
Earlier today, we published a Lost Ogle Q&A with Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Joe Dorman.
Because we’re fair and balanced, we also sent the same 15 questions to Governor Fallin. I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I emailed her campaign asking about the Q&A. She did take part in one in 2010, but that was four years ago. It was before she was a heavily favored, but unpopular incumbent trying to sputter her way to reelection.
It was also before…
A) We filed a lawsuit against her. And in the process, forced her to release all public records regarding Obamacare, including the embarrassing ones.
B) The rise of Hipster Boo Boo. Our first post about the Governor’s daughter was published in 2011 after we discovered her first engagement website. Since then, we’ve kind of made it a habit to lampoon her ridiculous eccentric attention-craving daughter, who, by the way, has conveniently fallen off the map during the campaign season.
C) Inauguration Speech Plagiarism. 104-degree Hot Tub. Bowl Game Travel. Twitter Hacks. Open Toed Shoes. The Playboy Mansion Grotto. Yeah, I guess you can say we’ve had fun at Mary’s expense since she became Governor back in 2010. But… it was never planned or intentional. We didn’t seek out or pursue these stories. They all came to us via the Ogle Mole Network. It’s a powerful thing.
Based upon all that stuff, I really didn’t expect Governor Fallin to participate in the Q&A, but after touching base with, and sending the questions, to her Communications Czar Alex Weintz, I got the following response:
Eureka! Mary Fallin agreed to the Q&A! I know we give her a hard time, but that’s actually a cool thing to do. Kudos to her for taking the high road, and realizing that TLO reaches a large audience of voting Oklahomans who would like a little levity and humor the day before election day.

Q: It’s been over one year since Lord Gary England retired as The Severe Weather Savior of Oklahoma. Who do you now watch during storm season?
A: I loved Gary England, but I now get my weather reports from Mike Morgan. He, like all of our television meteorologists, never hypes things up and does his best to keep Oklahomans safe. The calm, cool, collected demeanor he displays during a severe weather outbreak is very soothing.
Q: When driving to the Oklahoma panhandle, do you chuckle whenever you pass through the towns Beaver, Hooker or Slapout?
If you’re reading this in your office or cubicle, you should probably get back to work. Otherwise, our Governor is going to have a little talk with you.
Yesterday, the Oklahoma Democratic Party released a video from a town hall that shows Governor Fallin making some comments about the unemployed. No, she didn’t call them terrorists or anything. She just wants them to stop being lazy and get jobs.
Check it out:
I guess we know why Mary Fallin wants to flunk all those third graders who can’t pass reading tests. She must know what it’s like to live in a world with confusing letters and symbols that make no sense.
Earlier this week, the following pic of Mary at a campaign event in McAlester made the rounds on Facebook. I think it proves something we’ve all suspected: Mary Fallin doesn’t know how to read.
Check it out:
We promise. This is the final Mary Fallin related post for the week.
Well, unless she says or does something stupid before Friday. Since that’s a near certainty, I guess disregard my earlier statement and expect a post about Mary Fallin later this week.
Thanks to our Governor, I nearly had to break my promise. Always down for a good challenge, she announced the following day that she’s for the legalization of medicinal marijuana while not being for the legalization of medical marijuana.
Gov. Mary Fallin is supporting legalization of a nonintoxicating component of marijuana on a limited, trial basis for use in treating young people with rare conditions that cause seizures and strokes.
The ingredient is cannabidiol oil (CBD), and an interim legislative study is planned.
Wait a second. That’s not stupid. That’s great! I hope the study leads to new moderns laws that give Oklahomans the freedom and power to treat deadly, life altering seizures without being considered criminals.
I wonder what Mary thinks about the people who suffer from other medical conditions? You know, things ranging from pain, insomnia, muscle tension, anxiety, nausea or loss of appetite to potentially fatal diseases like cancer or AIDs? What type of medical marijuana will they be able to get?
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
