For a guy who looks like a skeleton, James Lankford sure could use a spine.
Over the weekend, Senator Gingertor – the guy who’s supposed to be the more sane and reasonable of our two US senators – announced that he’s still aboard the latest obstructionist effort from the alt-right to stick it to the Libs… and attempt to usurp our country’s flawed, fake, money-driven democracy.
Here are some details via The Tulsa World:
U.S. Sen. James Lankford on Saturday joined a group of Republican senators who say they’ll oppose final approval of Electoral College results on Wednesday until a special commission “audits” election results in several states before the Jan. 20 inauguration date.
Speaking by telephone Saturday afternoon, Lankford said his objective is to clear up as many questions about the election as possible.
“We’re trying to get the facts out,” Lankford said. “We want to be able to say those questions were answered to the best of our ability.”
Yeah, this is about as surprising as a 15-year-old getting to second base at the Falls Creek Church Camp.
Sure, those of us who haven’t been brainwashed by decades of right-wing propaganda, fearmongering and misinformation, accept the election results and know it wasn’t rigged (outside of its typical money, corporate and party influences), but then again, we don’t have to count on the brainwashed folks to give us money and vote for us to keep our job every six years. James Lankford does. You know there are legions of narcissistic Trump folks biting at the chomp to go full He-Man on him in the primary if he doesn’t bend the knee to their cult, so his hands are a bit tied on all this.
Here’s James Lankford’s tweet about the news:
May the Lord raise up righteous and diligent judges, lawmakers, and leaders because our nation needs justice and examples of faith in our public square. I recently wrote a prayer for Decision Magazine’s December issue. You can read the full thing here: https://t.co/tyPVcX1r2s

Oops. Wrong tweet. That’s the one where he prayers for God to deliver us lawmakers who are the opposite of James Lankford. Here’s the correct one:

If you click the link, it will take you to a lengthy Facebook where he does a mental gymnastics floor routine attempting to justify his actions, while also trying not to alienate the few remaining establishment GOP-types who still have a shred of integrity. Check it out on your own if you want to see if he sticks the landing.
