In recent weeks, Tommy Boy Coburn has been making his hack-slash budget views very known. In the last couple weeks, his meddling has even led to the omnibus spending bill (which would’ve, among other things, paid for health care) getting pushed back. He’s been putting attention on earmarks and other major factors, so when Coburn showed up on Fox News Sunday today, it’s obvious what he was there for. He wanted to get his two cents in on wasteful spending. Here’s the key part (which we skipped ahead for), where he talks about redundancy. Is he right? Is the redundancy what’s killing us? And why did Tom Coburn grow a beard, anyway, guys?
So, disregarding the stuff Tom Coburn is saying here (it’s pretty bad and can be refuted fairly easily by anyone who watches the news), we’d like to take a minute to note that Tom Coburn is the new Joe Miller. See, had Miller been elected, he would’ve been the only member of the Senate to rock a beard. But, since Miller blew that opportunity (and is still fighting the results in court for some reason), Coburn has taken up his mantle as the only Senator with a beard. And like Miller’s beard, Coburn’s also has a Twitter account. (thanks corruptpolitics) source
