Oklahoma politics

“As a general rule, we do not have to listen to them”

– Rep. Guy Liebmann, R-Oklahoma City, in response to an attempt by Chad Smith, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, to speak at a State House committee meeting on a bill to declare English the official language of the State of Oklahoma.

Update: Just to clarify, what really struck me about this quote was the idea that a politician would say that about the people.  Imagine another situation in which an employee said that of their employer.
