Hall-la-lou-lou-ing for Oklahoma's Senator Tom Coburn: Congress's Worst Person?

Federal Flood Insurance Expires Due To GOP Obstruction

(OKLAHOMA CITY) As Henry II is alleged to have said to his henchmen in regard to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket, who had been blocking some of Henry's governing and expropriating plans, "Is there no one to rid me of this meddlesome priest?"

Odd isn't it how frequently, almost inevitably, religious piety and the process of making civil law become nearly conjoined twins.

As of today there is no one who has announced in Oklahoma to run against GOPer Senator

"Dr. NO" Tom Coburn whose term expires this year, nor has Coburn said he would not run for re-election.

Coburn is notorious for blocking social services bills containing unemployment and disaster relief that offer some assistance to those taxpayers whose jobs and property have been seriously damaged through no fault of their own, or as some people might say, "acts of 'god'."

Here is a link to a story concerning Coburn's latest exercise in self-righteousness:

Amazing isn't it that such an obstreperous, vainglorious, self-serving, hard-hearted individual is able to do as he pleases with Senate bills that affect real people who have to deal with real problems. Coburn in his other-worldly remoteness as he lives up to another aspect of his Dr. NO nick-name,has no fear of consequences from the voters of Oklahoma who in turn pride themselves on their allegiance to christian religion as they halla-lou-lou this easter week over the supposed resuscitation of a doubtful historical figure and its associated mythical suffering.These same fundies are perfectly comfortable allowing one of their Senators to exacerbate the real time sufferings of their fellow Americans in other parts of the country.
