This one won't be appreciated by many of you but it is very humorous and tells a real story about the real world.

Irritated at the bumps on the road to the Democrats' Thousand-Year Reich, liberals are now claiming that Republican Sen. Tom Coburn requested a prayer for the death of Sen. Bob Byrd during the health care debate last Saturday night.

Here is what Coburn actually said: "What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can't make the vote tonight. That's what they ought to pray."

Oh, he meant Robert Byrd all right and everyone there knew it. Byrd had been ailing that day and a late night vote in a blizzard would be hard on the 92 year old. Everyone on both sides of the aisle knew if Byrd didn't make in to vote, the democrats couldn't get their 60 votes. Coburn even got called out from a member of his own party for his callousness.

Did you read any part of the link? Somehow I don't think you did or you may have seen what a conservative thought about the event. Can you disagree with her about what happened? Well sure you can because you have read what the libs have written about the event without seeing anything that disagrees.

Yes, I did read your conservative link about the prayer as well as find my own liberal link about what happened. Contrary to your assumptions, I read/view as many conservative media sources as I do liberal ones. I like to compare both sides of an issue before forming an opinion. In this case, I stand by my post above.

So, you and Coburn agree that it was courageous for Byrd to brave the blizzard in order to pass the healthcare bill.

Here's additional proof that everyone understood that Coburn was aiming that prayer request at Byrd. A conservative Tea Bagger prayer group was upset because they thought their pray for Bryd to die went astray and hit one of their own.
