Bibleless Pioneer Woman beaten badlyApril 30th, 2007
Okies have put in their two cents on the Oklahoma commemorative two-bit coin.
As the result of a statewide vote, Governor Brad Henry announced today that Oklahoma’s commemorative quarter will feature the state bird and state wildflower: the scissor-tailed flycatcher and the Indian blanket (Gaillardia pulchella).
It wasn’t even close for the Pioneer Women.
The final vote tallies are as follows:
#2 – 76,643
#3 – 19,740
#4 – 18,976
#1 – 17,784
#5 – 15,023
Oklahomans want Bible on their quarter
The symbol known as the Pioneer Woman will probably be featured on Oklahoma’s state quarter but she may not be carrying her trademark Bible.
But, some Oklahomans, including Gov. Brad Henry, want the Pioneer Woman to be holding her Bible on the quarter.
A spokesman said that if a Pioneer Woman design is selected then Henry “will be in touch” with the U.S. Mint requesting the Bible be placed in her right hand as depicted in the 17-foot bronze statue in Ponca City, Okla.
Advantage – Henry. He gets credit for wanting the Bible, but without the hassle.
But this can’t be good for Hillary. Four woman candidates out of five, and they still lose.
