Thanks to Oklahoma’s venerable McCarville Report for news of another Oklahoma newspaper — the editorially very conservative Oklahoman in OKC — unimpressed by Gov. Mike Huckabee’s attack on Okla. Atty. Gen. Drew Edmondson for going after Arkansas chicken industry pollution in Oklahoma waters. The Tulsa World earlier blistered Huckabee.
Huckabee’s visit to Tulsa and Oklahoma City to “boost his own presidential bid and trash” Edmondson, the editorial says, was political: “He’s a lame duck who has an eye on the White House. As a conservative Republican, he conceivably would run well in Oklahoma. But he hurts his chances by failing to support actions that most Oklahomans want to restore quality to the water of its most scenic river.”
