Forget the presidency

While I was on vacation, a junior Senator named Tom Coburn had the audacity to force his colleagues to vote "Yes" publicly for their pork barrel projects, instead of earmarking those particular funds for hurricane relief. Not surprisingly-that is, if you're not an imbecile- most Senators votes against the Coburn Amendment, including the majority of Republicans. Not coincidentally, those Republicans kissed any presidential aspirations goodbye. Here is the roll call for the vote on the Coburn Amendment, courtesy of Mark Tapscott :

1 Well, I'll be darned... one of my dingus Democrat senators actually voted FOR it. Huh.

2 Feingold is a free speech suppressing wanker, but he is usually fiscally responsible. At least, as much as any senator.
