In case you missed it

which you probably did because its on fuckin c-span but on saturday night tom coburn asked his constituents and anyone else opposed to the current health care reform bill to pray that senator robert byrd didnt make it to the building in time to vote. as you can see some of them pretty much thought that meant that they should pray for the senator to die. now i think its tasteless and rude to pray for things to work in your favor when you're basically trying to deny other people the basic rights you have. hell i even find it a little weird that the church right down the street from comerica park and ford field prays for lions and tigers victories and judging by the amount of wins the lions have God,Jesus,Jehovah and Buddha all hate the lions and are somewhat on the tigers bandwagon but back to what i was saying. when you pray for someone to die it is going to come back and bite you in the ass.

What was said in the video:

CALLER: Yeah doctor. Our small tea bag group here in Waycross, we got our vigil together and took Dr. Coburn’s instructions and prayed real hard that Sen. Byrd would either die or couldn’t show up at the vote the other night.

How hard did you pray because I see one of our members was missing this morning. Did it backfire on us? One of our members died? How hard did you pray senator? Did you pray hard enough

HOST: Senator Barasso, he was referring to Senator Inhofe, who was not part of the round of voting this morning.

BARASSO: The votes today, they needed 60 votes in favor of the bill. Senator Inhofe is opposed to the bill, and whether he was there or not didn’t make any difference. There was no way that Jim Inhofe was going to vote for the bill, the senator from Oklahoma. So that’s why he wasn’t there this morning.

HOST: Do you know where he was, senator, why he wasn’t able to make the vote this morning?

BARASSO: No, I don’t know.

senator james mountain inhofe isnt dead. he's just dumb
