Tom Coburn cries for unity

I really like it when the writers of AMERICAblog get snarky.

Apparently, during the Roberts hearings today, Sen. Tom Coburn got a little emotional. He gave a "heartfelt" plea for America to move away from polarization.

Now I remember Coburn from this little moment:

"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.'"

(I think I have a HRC file with this quote on it). Anyway, does that sound like a man who wants to move away from polarization?

Anyway, Rob from AMERICAblog remembers this moment, too. And he is Not Amused by Coburn's plea for unity.

Go read. It's fun.
