Die for the Man, Mortimer!
Robert Byrd may have dodged Tom Coburn’s Holy Bullet on Sunday — “What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight” — but a caller to C-SPAN this morning feared that God may have gotten His signals crossed:
Our small teabag group here in Waycross, we got our vigil together and took Dr. Coburn’s instructions and prayed real hard that Sen. Byrd would either die or couldn’t show up at the vote the other night.
How hard did you pray because I see one of our members was missing this morning. Did it backfire on us? One of our members died? How hard did you pray senator? Did you pray hard enough?
Playing the part of Deer In Headlights is John Barrasso (R-Cheneyland), who was unable to explain why James Inhofe skipped today’s cloture vote, nor whether Inhofe deserves to live.
