So, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who once worried about the rampant spread of lesbianism in high-school bathrooms and sterilized a woman without her permission, was one of three Republicans to vote against the final minimum wage bill.

According to Coburn, he did it to help the poor.

Next week I hear he is voting against Thai hookers to help Neil Bush and banning heart surgery to help Dick Cheney.

Isn't he the one that commissioned one of those "family tree" nuts to go back in time and insure there were NO gays in his family?
OMFG

I think Inhofe did that, but who knows, maybe Coburn too. They are both from Oklahoma, and are two of the craziest mofo's in the Senate.

I am glad you are all still around. Sorry for the lack of posting. Things shall pick up...

Oh man...I really hate Coburn. "Helping the poor" is just a metaphor for sticking it to them one more time. There's a special place for Tom and guys like him in hell...asshole.

I was watching C-Span the other day - maybe Monday - and I saw Uncle Teddy K. standing in front of no one in the Senate chamber bemoaning all the republican riders on the minimum wage bill. As is my wont, I started railing at the TV: "Let 'em filibuster, you old fat drunk. What are you afraid of?"

As usual, no one answered me back. But I still think the cowards that we call the Senate Democrats should have let the filibuster go. Let all of America hear why you're holding up a minimum wage increase. Let them explain WHY their business cronies HAVE to get more tax breaks on the backs of the working poor.

Cretins, creeps and more of the same ole, same ole.

No one answered you back, Gimmeabreak? You just didn't scream loudly enough. Mine answers me all the time. Trouble is, my TV is a smartass. I'm trying to teach it some manners.

Next week I hear he is voting against Thai hookers to help Neil Bush and banning heart surgery to help Dick Cheney.

And prohibiting ventriloquism to help George Bush. And banning rehab clinics to help Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Dick Cheney, Michael Richards, Mel Gibson, Courtney Love...
...Bob Ney...
...Anna Nicole Smith...
...Mark Foley...
...Rush Limbaugh...

Ok.... the line about banning heart surgery to help Darth Dick.

That was good. Really really good. Still cleaning the spray of spit and beer off my monitor....

Just an FYI for anyone who goes to Daily Kos- I will be hosting the Saturday Nite Losers Club about 8p EST tonite. You need to register if you're not, but it's always a snarky fun good time, and tonite I'm doing it as a pre-valentines day smackdown on LOVE. ack.
