TULSA---Along Yorktown Ave. between 21st and 25th streets Cascia
prep-school students are searching the grounds for the lost idiot alumnus.
But not to despair, he has been found, on the front pages of papers coast to
coast and on CNN, and still an idiot. Mrs. Keating’s little boy Frankie has
once again shown us all how easy it is to be a world class ass.
While the usual anti-papists and Catholic bashers take his resignation
from the Bishops National Review Board as sign that the Catholic Church is
attempting to cover up a multitude of sins. Oklahomans, Catholic and
Non-Catholic, know this is just the latest in a long line of mean spirited
statements by a frat brat who was a joke in school and whose only claim
to fame is daddy’s money and his wife’s connections.
Not only was his remark equating Bishops to La Costa Nostra ill advised
it was hypocritical in the extreme. Keating was complaining that the Bishops
had been “hiding information.” Well that depends on what you call hiding, Frankie.
When Keating as governor was questioned about his purchase of a state
airplane he danced and dodged every question. He even refused to divulge who
was riding on the taxpayer aircraft, he claimed it was to protect business
leaders who might be considering moving their operations to Oklahoma.
Others suggest he kept the identities secret because he didn’t want taxpayers
to know just how politicized the plane had become, or that maybe there
were some passengers the public didn’t need to know about. Republicans hate
scandals, especially about Republicans, right Frankie.
It’s never been fully explained why the governor, who made it a point
to have more than adequate security, would have the state troopers assigned to
protect him stay at hotels separate from his. Why? Just as one can only
wonder why the gov would use troopers’ credit cards for certain purchases so
they wouldn’t be reflected on his own expenses. Why? Ask Frank and see
what his position is on secrecy.
Frank never told the public that he used state troopers to move his
daughter back from school in Virginia. It seems the happy troop flew to
Virginia packed up the little missy and then the family flew back to Tulsa
while state troopers drove the Uhaul. Your tax dollar at work.
Nor did Frank ever explain about that weekend in Bohemian Grove,
California with the good ol’white boys of the ultra GOP. That’s one of those
weekends when all the rich and powerful white boys bond and make plans for
running the country. Interestingly all proceedings are not open to the public.
Democrats need not apply.
Little known is that during the bonding weekend, drums, loin cloths and
face paint may be optional, the governor and all other politicos are not allowed
to take phone calls or have visitors. If the Oklahoma City bombing had taken
place that weekend the dead would have had to wait until Frank surfaced with
a fresh nazipublican smile before they could die, it wouldn’t do to have his
picture taken with a three day old corpse. As Frank found out, bleeding and
dying children are worth lots of votes if you can make it to the nets.
Frank kept lots of secrets when he was governor. And made a lot of
mean remarks about teachers, inmates he was about to kill, and voters who
refused to elect his wife and give the happy couple a free trip back to
Washington D.C., their REAL home
But alas, Frank’s fortunes seem to have fallen. After calling teachers
slugs and saying the best method of dealing with teachers was homicide
Frank has, to put it not too succinctly, pissed off the pope.
But, that’s ok he once described the Pope as a nice old man who
misread the Catechism when he opposed the death penalty. As with his fellow
Republican Governors, George Pataki and George W. Bush, Frank got a real
buzz out of killing people. Nothing like hauling a unarmed man out of a cell,
strapping him to a table and then hiring someone to kill him for you. Those rites
of passage just aren’t what they used to be.
Not to fear. Frank still has lots of money. But it may be only a matter of
time before the people paying him the big bucks to sit on various boards take
stock of this laughing stock and think to themselves, “ How long before this
goof says something we have to live with.”
The GOP caught on early. Frank wanted to be Attorney General but over
played his hand, pissed off the Bushies and they handed him his head on a platter
by disclosing that he had a long standing open palm policy with the old man Dreyfuss
to the tune of $10,000 a year, just to help with the kids education. Frank never
mentioned what happened to the money after his daughter got the free ride through
the University of Oklahoma Law School. OU--always looking out for the needy.
Thus Frank leaves the Review Board, probably in worse shape than he
found it. Bishop Gregory has learned he might want to check people out a
little more closely before pandering to the ultra right and Catholics, well now the
world knows what we in Oklahoma knew all along---- keep newspapers on
the floor when Frank Keating comes to call.
