OK Comic Book Author Loses In Primary

rinehart.jpgThat’s quite a comedown for an incumbent politician, to come in last in a three-way primary. But that’s exactly what happened to Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart, the politician who mailed out a crude campaign comic book. He was trounced in the Republican primary, garnering only 21% of the vote.

So now, Rinehart has plenty of time to perfect his artistic skills. That, and to defend himself in Oklahoma County District Court tomorrow against several felony campaign corruption charges stemming from he previous campaign.

I guess he’ll draw his judge in tomorrow’s preceedings with horns and a pitchfork too.

Actually, Mr. Rinehart didn’t draw the comic; he just wrote it. It was drawn by someone named Shane Suiters. Whether the errors in spelling and grammar were in Rinehart’s script or were the fault of Suiters is unknown.

Still, I’m glad to see that he lost. And I hope that that lousy comic contributed to his defeat by illustrating what an idiot he is.

Let it be a lesson: bad art doesn’t pay.
