It's okay, as long as he hates the broads and the homos

Thanks to Atrios for reminding everyone to check out Salon's scary expose on a Republican nomination to Senate. Tom Coburn sits on the President's council on HIV and AIDS, a disease which disproportionately afflicts gay men (need I remind you?). This is how he feels about gays:

"The gay community has infiltrated the very centers of power in every area across this country, and they wield extreme power ... That agenda is the greatest threat to our freedom that we face today. Why do you think we see the rationalization for abortion and multiple sexual partners? That's a gay agenda."

For some reason, he thinks that gays, who conservatives constantly remind us cannot conceive, cause abortions. And of course, the cure for promiscuity is to ban marriage, or something like that.

When he was a doctor, he sterilized a woman against her will. (Something that pro-choicers are accused of wanting to do, mind you.) He is a hypocrite of the weirdest, most fucked-up sort:

"I favor the death penalty for abortionists and other people who take life," he told the Associated Press in July.

He presumably excludes himself (since he has performed abortions, no doubt for the "right" reasons) and murderer-in-chief George Bush who had a fantastic death penalty record as governor and has really topped himself in killing Muslims, plus 1,000+ dead American soliders dead due to his screwed-up decisions.

Read the whole thing. I guess the good news is that more and more people are being open with the fact that "pro-life" is just a misleading euphemism for anti-woman and anti-freedom.

Texas owns 50% of the nation's crazy. Oklahoma must be jealous, because they've been throwing some whoppers up there.

We Oklahomans harbor many wackos that we are just waiting to unleash on the United States. My favorite Oklahoma wacko was former candidate for Governor, Hoppy Heidelberg. We can produce quality wackos-- just give us a chance!

Well, I can't speak---I live in Illinois, where the very certifiable Keyes is running for Senate. It's pretty clear he's just trying to revive his shock-radio career, as he goes up and down the state, embarrassing the hell out of moderate Republicans (in Illinois, that's the majority of Repubs, believe it or not), and embarrassing himself (if he could only realize it) by his complete lack of knowledge of Illinois and its issues.

Watching this Senate race must be like watching a train wreck for the Republican party; I'm an Obama supporter, so I find it entertaining. Reporters must too; they stand around the podium salivating, looking for the next batch of crazy shit Keyes can come up with. At least Barack Obama can laugh his way into the Senate seat!!

I'm originally from Maryland, and I can vouch for the fact that Keyes is, indeed, certifiable.
