According to the Tulsa World:
Coburn made it clear that he won’t be on Newt Gingrich’s 2012 presidential bandwagon.
Gingrich “is a super-smart man, but he doesn’t know anything about commitment to marriage,” he said of the thrice-married former House speaker. “He’s the last person I’d vote for for president of the United States. His life indicates he does not have a commitment to the character traits necessary to be a great president.”
For once I agree with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.). Of course, Coburn is the guy who once said that the movie Schindler’s List should not be shown on network television because the actors playing holocaust victims were filmed in varied states of nudity. Only a repressed fundamentalist could watch such a movie and see anything sexual about it.
The entire Republican Party, these days, just seems sick. From holier-than-thou prudes like Coburn or hypocrites like Gingrich, it is difficult to respect any of them or find a leader among the sorry lot.
