Sexiest 911 Hero, John Feal:

Mr. Coburn should be ashamed of himself. Because I think before he was a senator he was a doctor and he took an oath to help people that are sick. He’s going against his oath as a doctor. He can vote any way he wants as a senator, but as a doctor, he just embarrassed the medical profession.”

Poor, Senator Coburn (R-OK). It’s not easy being a piece of shit.

Even the soulless Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani are calling for this bill to be passed.

But there’s hope:

Republican and Democratic senators have reached a deal on a scaled-down bill to help 9/11 first responders who became sick from having worked in the dust of the World Trade Center.

Congressional aides close to the negotiations tell The Associated Press that the deal calls for providing up to $4 billion in health care and economic aid over five years to first responders and survivors of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism attacks. (AP)

Update! Yes, humanity prevails! Senator Cretin fails! A deal has been reached!

  1. Perhaps “the clock of time” has turned around, and folks’re starting to realize that knee-jerk opposition to *everything* may actually not be a winner all the time.

    Personally, I don’t believe it. But it’s nice to see the words strung together, at least.

    And now back to watching Walnuts make his own gravy.

    • So “9/11” means it takes 9 to 11 years to obtain healthcare coverage when you risk your life to save people in a terrorist attack.

      The irony is that the next time firemen will face such danger, they won’t ask themselves if they are going to get screwed like the 9/11 first responders. They are going to jump into the danger and hope fire and Republicans won’t take their lives…

    • Wow! That Red State comment was astonishingly fucked up…and stupid. But WOW! It’s as if the fucker doesn’t know the proper definition of “conservative” in English. Jesus undermined that status quo, pulled the mother fucking rug out from under the establishment. Weird.

      It’s a bit passe to reference 1984, but 1984. 😯

      • If I remember right from the balloon-juice comments, the author over on red state is some winger mouth onna radio, who came in 2nd to palin onna red state poll of the conservatives they most trust.

        Or maybe it was “most deserve”. Hard to tell sometimes.

  2. the rethugs are doing whatever they can to try to convince people that they still have weewees. yertle mcconnell is probably stewing in his mock turtle soup knowing that the moderates are willing to ignore him and vote with the dems. wouldn’t it be funny if a few of them decide to jump to the other side of the aisle, or even declare themselves independents?
