This is what it means to be a modern day Republican. Obfuscate to the point where a late night (early morning) vote is necessary and then pray that those who might vote for health care reform cannot make the vote. They prayed for rain on Obama’s nomination acceptance speech. Now they pray that the ill are either too sick to make it or die before they are able to?

At 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon — nine hours before the 1 a.m. vote that would effectively clinch the legislation’s passage — Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) went to the Senate floor to propose a prayer. “What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight,” he said. “That’s what they ought to pray.”

Just fucking sick.

Coburn surely knew that Robert Byrd is in frail condition and had to be brought in by wheelchair. He made it, of course, and was heard giving the Republicans who forced such a late vote a “shame…shame” upon entering the chamber to cast his vote.

0-2 on the rain prayers. Apparently God doesn’t like Republicans or wingnut asshats.

    Anything to distract from his association with “the family”

    Why does the GOP hate Americans so much? Money good people evil.

    Arrogance+Sanctimony+Incompetence = Obama, Pelosi, Reid

    Why are the Democrats so sneaky that they vote in the middle of the night? Why do the Democrats think they are better than the American citizen?
