It's Cold Down There

Well, I may have to rethink global warming. Because....

(In case you're wondering, this is Tom Coburn, my fellow physician. Just goes to show 'ya. I guess if you make it through med school, even at the bottom of the class, you might have at least a remnant of veritas. For this, I'll give hims some credit.)


  1. Wow. From Wikipedia's description to that interview. Pardon me, doctor, I have a case of whiplash.

    California, meantime, I am proud to report, having found that having open primaries leads to more moderate candidates, is trying again to write a law for one (the Supremes having struck down the first version, but not till an election had shown it to be a good idea. Okay, so, leave out the specific names of the two parties and let's roll.) The idea is so that candidates don't have to kowtow to the baseness of their bases in order to win the primaries. (Poizner and Whitman...)

    I think the over-the-top ranting will, in the end, politically crush those who resort to it, because most of us want to be seen as better than that. I'm glad to see Coburn stepping away from it and encouraging others to, too--about time!

  2. So all of the Fox Noose folk are left swinging in the wind - clunking and twisting dully - like the hollow gourds they are.

    Finally, FINALLY someone stepped out of the lockstep faux - conservative death-march to let a little air into the sour fart pit republicans have been wallowing in.

    It must have started with Drudge when he realized that the republican dog was being shaken by the Fox tail.

    I can hear the wailing, here in SD, of the likes of SS and Drekman - and their ignorant ilk.

    Unbelievably, for the first time in generations, I am feeling something like respect for a republican.

    Probably won't last long, but Wow.


  3. At least Dr. Coburns academic records aren't sealed up tighter than Nancy Pelosi's face.
    What was our fearless leaders(Peace be upon Him) class rank? You can't even find out what his GPA was...Something tells me if it was good it wouldn't be a state secret...


  4. Well, lets see: He taught at the University of Chicago over a period of twelve years.

    Read - the UC Law School statement:

    The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer." From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law School's Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.

    Yep, sounds like a low GPA type for sure!


  5. Only would like Frank Drackman to stop--as I said before--the "peace be upon him" goofiness.

    Is this just an example of rightwing folks not allowing reality to enter their beliefs/universe?

    Darn it all, I need to watch more than ABC, PBS, listen to more than NPR. It's like you have said, Dr Schwab, facts only exist when I listen to "all' sides.

    Darn that science!!

  6. The point is, is GPA could be as high as the current deficit, but nobody knows, cause its Secret, unlike "W"'s from Yale...
    "Those who Can't, Teach"
    You catch that 17 minute word salad answer he gave the other day??? Made "W" sound like friggin Steven Hawkins...


  7. Umm... Oh, Yeah!

    What was W's GPA again? I'm sure I remember it being it widely published when he stole the election.
