T.W. Shannon got his ass handed to him by James Lankford on Friday. Ginger Skeletor won the race by a decisive and somewhat insulting 22.8% margin. It was the biggest ass whipping James Lankford has delivered since that time he stumbled across a science textbook at the Falls Creek Church Camp.
The results were a surprise to many analysts and insiders. Most were expecting a runoff and two more months of ridiculous negative campaign ads trying to paint two ultra-right wingers as Obama liberals. Sooner Poll even released numbers on Monday reporting that Lankford had a 43% to 35% lead, which, once again, reminds us to never take any Sooner Poll too seriously.
Anyway, don’t feel too sorry for old T.W. He’ll probably land a six-figure gig as a lobbyist or consultant and he’s still the Boy Wonder of state GOP. Don’t be surprised if you seem him running for Governor in four years or seeking a US Senate seat when the robot that’s playing the role of Jim Inhofe retires or has a total circuit board failure.
Plus, T-Dub has a hot ass wife. Her name is Devon Shannon. She’s this week’s Hot Girl Friday.
