Brad Henry, Oklahoma's pro-gambling Democratic governor, is running for re-election and running a political ad in which his three blonde, telegenic daughters are the stars. The girls explain, in cheerful soundbites, how the size and scope of statist schooling has grown, thanks to their dad.
While Henry's opponent - Ernest Istook - praises homeschooling (and pub. ed)., some savvy Republicans privately say that Mr. Henry is going to win by a landslide.
By a landslide? Tell me again how this is a conservative state?
