We were worried that wingnuts were going to challenge the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency. That he won in a blowout (at least by modern standards) dampened that concern a bit. But don’t get too relaxed, folks.

Some newspaper readers in Sapulpa are upset by what wasn’t in the paper.

The Sapulpa Daily Herald did not report that Barack Obama won the Presidential election in its Wednesday edition.

Best part?

One paragraph on the front page did report the majority of Creek County voted for McCain.

It’s a small paper, and it would be understandable if they just avoided national politics. But clearly they don’t. Can’t bring themselves to publish Obama’s name, perhaps?
