Coburn to 9-11 Heroes: Drop Dead
Challenges Inhofe for "Biggest Asshole' award

"Inhofe ain't got shit on me when
  it comes to being a major douche


Amid mounting pressure from Democrats and a growing handful of Republicans
to pass a bill that would provide health care benefits to first responders who were
at the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn announced
on Monday his intentions to block passage of the legislation.

He tells Politico that he "wouldn't allow the bill to move quickly" due to "problems
with parts of the bill and the process Democrats are employing" to pass it.

Coburn defended his position in a Tuesday morning interview on Fox News,
arguing that "this is a bill that's been drawn up and forced through Congress at
the end of the year on a basis to solve a problem that we didn't have time to
solve and we didn't get done."

Coburn also argued that the bill, entitled the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act,
"hasn't even been through a committee." Coburn added: "We haven't had the testimony
to know."  (ThinkProgress notes that on June 29, the Senate Committee on Health,
Education, Labor and Pensions - on which Coburn sits - held a hearing on the bill.
But Coburn's office says that doesn't amount to having gone "through a committee.")

Meanwhile, a growing chorus of Republican commentators has begun to pressure
GOP senators to revise their positions, arguing that the health of first responders is
a sensitive national issue - and that opposing it could be politically unwise.

"Why wouldn't we take care of their health care?" asked intern-killing Joe Scarborough.
"It's just like taking care of veterans' health care... It can't be a good move for Republicans
to oppose a bill for the firefighters and the cops on 9/11."

When it came time to bail out the Wall Street billionaires, Tom Coburn didn't have any
worries about controlling the money. When it comes to "the little people," I don't see how
Tom Coburn is any different than Leona Helmsley (Not a compliment)

...and it makes me wonder...

If the Democrats had half a brain cell between their entire f-ing party
(Should I bother to finish this sentence?) why the hell didn't they introduce this bill
in mid-October, KNOWING the GOP would show their lack-of-heart - we might've
saved more House seats and been in a better position to outwit the sons of bitches.

But no, we're Democrats.
We can't f-ing think.
We're so f-ing stupid, Bartcop is one of our top strategerists.

Why can't our side think?
Why can't our side be half as smart as their side?
Why can't our side see more than five minutes into the future?

Over at DU, they accuse me of "being in love" with Bill Clinton.

When did Clinton ever crawl under a table and wet himself in fear?
