On the Senate floor yesterday, Rep. Tom Coburn (R-OK) broke down, openly weeping:

When I ponder our country and its greatness, its weaknesses, its potential, my heart aches for less divisiveness, less polarization, less finger pointing, less bitterness, less mindless partisanship, which at times sounds almost hateful to the ear of Americans.

Here’s how Tom Coburn has done his part to mend the partisan divide:

Coburn on his 2004 opponent: It’s a “battle of good vs. evil.”

Coburn on the Oklahoma legislature: “You have a bunch of crapheads in Oklahoma City that have killed the vision of anybody wanting to invest in Oklahoma.”

Coburn on doctors: “I favor the death penalty for abortionists and other people who take life.”

Coburn on homosexuality: “The gay community has infiltrated the very centers of power in every area across this country, and they wield extreme power … Why do you think we see the rationalization for abortion and multiple sexual partners? That’s a gay agenda.”

Thank you for your efforts, Sen. Coburn.
