Rachel Maddow takes on Tom Coburn's faux principle

To be fair, she stretches one point when she accuses Coburn of telling the American people to pray that a fellow Senator would die rather than make the healthcare vote, but he did, in fact, suggest they pray that someone not be able to make the vote. It certainly wasn't very Christian to do, and he should be held accountable for that. For the rest, I think Rachel does a nice job of addressing my Senator's hypocrisy with regard to the John Ensign scandal (which is still amazingly basically not covered by the national media) and his willingness to vote for lots of unpaid for expenditures, but not for unemployment benefits or aid to fight genocide.
