The only thing we have to fear is Tom Coburn

THE DEPTHS OF the Republican opposition to President Obama's health care reform plan was downgraded to the fallout shelter during the Senate floor debate on the issue. It was left to Sen. Tom Coburn, the arch conservative Republican obstetrician from Oklahoma to lay out the deadliest end of the spectrum when he rose to warn Americans' of their impending doom if the bill passes.

"I have a message for you," the doctor declared. "You're going to die sooner."

For his big dose of fear-mongering to unsuspecting Americans, Coburn easily wins the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (Gall) award. And I was naive enough to think that things couldn't get worse in the war on health care reform. They have.

If Coburn and friends write a healthcare bill, dieing sooner may be a blessing.
