It just doesn’t get better for a political critic than Oklahoma politics where stupid seems to be the standard of public service.
The Oklahoman reported Tuesday that State Labor Commissioner Lloyd Fields was taken to Oklahoma City’s detox center after apparently stealing a bull rider’s guitar off the stage at the Professional Bull Riders Inc. (PBR) Copenhagen Challenger Tour Championship after-party Saturday night.
Getting caught drunk and stupid is certainly gist for humor worldwide and how that happens to a high ranking public official who then avoids arrest is the question.
Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty told the Oklahoman Monday he cannot confirm — because of state law — that Fields was taken to the detox center. "I can’t verify that it happened. If a person is not technically arrested, then we can’t release that information or anything about that."
In a non-partisan offer to reduce the level of embarrassment for all the people of Oklahoma because we did elect these fools – I offer to buy Lloyd Fields a guitar and teach him how to play it. Maybe if he practices more he will steal less.
