Posted on 04/27/2016 1:10:57 PM PDT by Cyberman
Dr. No seems to have become Dr. Yes. Kind of.
Tom Coburn, the former Republican senator from Oklahoma known for his often contrarian views, said Wednesday that Judge Merrick B. Garland should get a vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee, going against his old colleagues who have staunchly opposed even considering President Obama's Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year....

So give him a vote. Just vote No!
Only one vote.
Hearings are an exercise in futility at this point.
So don’t even waste time or emotion on holding the hearing.
Biden Rule applies.
I still want an autopsy on Scalia. Tinfoil or not.
And I want it done by somebody we can trust with no leftist political bent.
Who gives a shit what he wants?
I can see these scumballs (those still in Congress) voting him in just after an election where DT wins.
But then, I’m part of the Conspiracy ping list.
Thank you Sen Coburn. The BINGO game is at 200pm, and Waterobics is at 400pm.
Shuffleboard league is at 700pm.
What a traitorous Rat Ba$tard.
He was cremated. It’s hard to do an autopsy on a container of ashes.
In Dallas, a 16-year-old girl used a chemical to kill her 38-year-old father with a fake heart attack.
The coroner didn’t have the expensive equipment, nor apparently the knowledge to test for what she used. Now they have additional equipment to test for it. Yes, long after they’re dead.
She almost got away with it; in fact she did. But told one of her classmates, who turned her in.
And they let her out (OF TEXAS), she changed her name (new one unknown to me), got married and she’s out there, somewhere.
Sleep well. I hope her new hubby has a loaded pistol. And watch out for the food she prepares; that’s how she killed Daddy.
[He was cremated.]
Well, of course he was. Great.
And without an autopsy, no samples kept from an original autopsy, which are sometimes used later.
Great. Thanks, didn’t know that.
Hello Uniparty Garland.
There are only a couple of ways to kill a pig, but an infinite number of ways to kill a himan.
Coburn has gotten worse and worse since he left
I guess we’ll never know.
It doesn’t surprise me this is how it played out.
The day or week after the election! Especially if a Republican wins
Once a RINO, always a RINO.
Don’t worry, Tom, I’m sure Garland will be confirmed right after Trump secures the nomination.
I do remember he came out for Marco Rubio for President earlier this year along with other established and still in office GOP politicians.
“Who gives a shit what he wants?”
First of all, Coburn is an EX-Senator...which means that his opinion counts as much as mine, which is to say that it matters as much as a gnat’s fart in a hurricane.
Second, he might be right...in a fair world. But we don’t live in that world, we live in the world with Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, the Clintons and Obama - and NONE of them play fair, they play to win. It is time to give them back some of what they dealt out in the past - and to THEN have a dialog about doing what is fair and right going forward. But they HAVE TO KNOW that the Republicans WILL ALWAYS play tit-for-tat in order to be brought back to the civilized table. Otherwise, why should they bother?
Coburn, you’re not teaching a college class, you’re living in the real world. Time to act like it.
