Falling Away

Remember Anna Falling, who ran for mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, under the platform that there just plain ol' wasn't enough religion in government?

Yeah, she got 10% of the primary vote, way behind her competitors. I don't know much at all about her competitors, but I have to think that running on the single plank she did, with hardly anything else to go on, couldn't have helped.

On the other hand, one out of ten Tulsans voted for her. Think on that.

Tip o' the ten gallon hat to Hemant over at Friendly Atheist.
