It was just over a year ago that Sen Tom Coburn (R-OK) made himself the most prominent voice of the tin foil hat brigade on the subject of health care reform. You may not remember as there has been so very much lunacy in the intermediate months. It was he who said on the floor of the Senate, “I have a message for you seniors: You're going to die sooner.”
How do you top a performance like that? Simple. You suggest that unless we elimante our basic social contracts and cut the essential safety nets for our most vulnerable citizens it will cause an economic “apocalypse.”
Am I the only one who's wondering how the hell he's going to top this next December?
