If there was ever a time NOT to do this, this is exactly it. But, it's probably very good, in the vast scheme of things, that today's Republicans are not exactly masters of timing.
U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., decided here and now, of all times, to use his authority to block a bill and hold up jobless benefits for a lot of desperate people out there. Here's the story.
My hopes and dreams for this country are somehow, in the long run, renewed. As ineffectual as Democrats have been, and for so long -- when they have pathetic cretins like this as their opposition, that is encouraging.
More on Coburn, by the way -- one of his "amendments" to the health care bill was to deny coverage of Viagra for rapists. Yep, that's sure going to stop a lot of rapes. Great that we have such moralists as Sen. Coburn up there at bat for us.
