Tom Coburn

The New York Times has an article today about Tom Coburn, a right-wing, antiabortionist, ultraconservative, probably wingnut.

Coburn makes a practice of putting folds on legislation techniques that needs with this disapproval. Where was the Democratic senator who hold the spying bill or war funding?

I do not know if he has strong principles or if he is just playing to his conservative constituency, but I wish that the Democrats have somebody with a tenacity to do something other than to cower before the right-wing.

perelman,
Not to be unkind, but you need to read your post over or submit it to your copy editor. It's comperhensible, but sounds like you've been drinking.

That would require that the electorate start electing people with an inclination toward good government. What chance do you think someone like Nader or Chomsky woould have in a Congressional or Senatorial election? Slim to none I would suggest.
