Contrapositive has a nice article introducing you to Tom Coburn, our charming republican Senator from Oklahoma. That’s right kids, this guy thinks that “abortionists and other people who take life” should get the death penalty. Chew on that for a minute. More counterintuitive yet, he thinks abortion is in place in our nation because of the “gay agenda.” I’ve gotten past the fact that the people have elected a monkey and his puppeteers as president. Yes, we really missed it on the “moral values” bullshit. We have better moral values, but nobody bothered to point that out. We lost. C’est.
That said, that people in Oklahoma voted for this nutcase is still something beyond my comprehension. This one is going to take a while to digest.
