Vice President Coburn? *shudder*

Some are suggesting McCain should pick proto-fascist Senator Tom Coburn as his running-mate. Some of Coburn's choice quotes:

Gun control: ''If I wanted to buy a bazooka to use in a very restricted way, to do something, I ought to be able to do that.''

-- May 2, 1999, Tulsa World

Abortion: ''I favor the death penalty for abortionists and other people who take life.''

-- July 10, 2004, The Associated Press.

Gay issues: ''He was telling me lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in southeast Oklahoma that they'll only let one girl go to the bathroom.''

-- Oct. 12, 2004, Tulsa World.

Yeah, this guy's qualified...or certifiable....


  1. i regularly hear people in this state talk about coburn in glowing terms. the only conceivable way coburn could get any kind of a positive gloss is in comparison to the other jackass senator from oklahoma.

    fuck both of them. andrew rice for senate.

  2. Coburn is no one to mess with, he has a hold on The ALS Registry act S.1382. ALS patients nation wide are being held hostage on Capitol Hill by Doctor / Senator from Oklahoma. Held by senate trickery this legislation would authorize the establishment of an ALS Registry at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The House of Representatives passed the bill on Oct.16, 2007 by an overwhelming 411-3 vote. The Senate H.E.L.P. Committee favorably reported the Senate version of the bill on Nov. 14, 2007 and more than two-thirds of the Senate has cosponsored the bill. The ALS Registry Act is needed to build on projects underway in three test cities and is supported even the Administration. No explanation by the Senator / Dr. No but he had time to endorse McCain.

  3. I was not aware of that. What a barstid.
