Sen. Tom Coburn is mulling an entry into the Republican presidential primary, according to sources inside and outside the Senate. Coburn, a senator from Oklahoma, is believed to be receiving encouragement from a small group of wealthy businessmen and philanthropists in the Oklahoma-Kansas-Texas region of the country.
"He's all about faith, lower taxes, and staying the course in Iraq," says an adviser outside of the Senate who has been speaking to Coburn.
Coburn is believed to have the backing of several low-profile members of the so called "Swift Boaters," men who financed the ads that doomed the presidential aspirations of Sen. John Kerry.
I don't know much about Coburn, so I wandered over to Wikipedia to take a peek.
Not all bad, he sounds like he leans towards regular conservatism, but then again there is this...
In 1997, Coburn introduced a bill called the HIV Prevention Act of 1997, which would have amended the Social Security Act. The bill would have mandated HIV testing in some situations, would have allowed physicians to demand an HIV test before providing medical care, and would have allowed insurance companies to demand an HIV test as a condition of issuing health insurance.
Erp, also this
Coburn said that he favored the death penalty for doctors who perform abortions and that homosexuality was the biggest threat to America.
Oh, nevermind, go read the whole damn thing. He's the freaking tool that says lesbians are in the school bathrooms, silicone breast implants are "healthy", is blocking celebrating Rachel Carson's birthday and and was against airing "Schindler's List" on regular tv.
He'll fit right in.
