Tom Cole's luck

The Politico has published a profile of Tom Cole, Congressman from Oklahoma and chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee, in which he insists he's “the luckiest guy in the conference to have this job.”

Gotta give Tom credit for putting on the happy face in hard times.

The story did fill me in on a bit of Oklahoma political history I was not aware of (I moved here in 2003).

Back home in the Sooner State, where Republicans now enjoy a 13-seat advantage in the legislature, folks are still talking about all that Cole has done for the GOP.
