mark your calendars, tom coburn and i agree, kind of

I’m not a Tom Coburn fan. I disagree with much of his agenda and I don’t think he has done much to help the image of Oklahoma on the national scene (except perhaps with the crossword crowd).

Yesterday he did a town hall meeting in Tulsa where (among other things) he called the FAA “chicken” – not terribly grown-up, but I’ll let that slide.

According to the Oklahoman, during the meeting he made the following statement during an exchange about immigration.

Our nation is in a mess,” Coburn replied, “but it doesn’t have anything to do with immigration. It has to do with career politicians who are afraid to defend people and who refused to stand up for the principles that made this country great. Immigration is a symptom, but it is not the disease. The disease is cowardice in the U.S. Senate.

On this, Dr. Coburn, I completely agree.

So could you please tell me who you were defending when you held up the Hunger Free Communities Act? Or when you voted against Biden Amdt. No. 4245? Or now as you are holding up the reauthorization of PEPFAR?

Just curious.
