HOPE Irony

From the "Sunday Oklahoman" in an article by John Greiner.

Rep. Ed Cannaday, D-Porum, a former government teacher, said he has been skeptical of government by petition or referendum because it often is used by legislators to defer their responsibility to govern through legislation.

But Cannaday said it is ironic that those who have supported this type of governing are now opposed to the OEA's petition drive.

"If it were to become part of our constitution, it would put into reality positions taken by both our governor and Legislature,” Cannaday said of the education petition.
