Crazy Tom Coburn during the Roberts’ hearings:
COBURN: Right. I’m not asking you about legal significance.
Would you agree that the opposite of being dead is being alive?
I don’t mean to be overly cautious in answering it.
COBURN: You know I’m going somewhere. One of the problems I have is coming up with just the common sense and logic that if brain wave and heartbeat signifies life, the absence of them signifies death, then the presence of them certainly signifies life.
And to say it otherwise, logically is schizophrenic. And that’s how I view a lot of the decisions that have come from the Supreme Court on the issue of abortion.
Crazy Tom Coburn today:
COBURN: You know, how is it that we have sodomy protected under that due process but prostitution unprotected? It’s schizophrenic. And the reason it’s schizophrenic is there’s no foundation for it whatsoever other than a falsely created foundation that is in error.
I don’t know if we’ll ever change that. It’s a measure of our society.
Kind of a one trick pony, isn’t he?
