Great Moments in Parliamentarian Debate

The scary thing is that this is from an organization that actually hopes people will take it seriously:

Good News, America: 14 Senators Don't Have BB's
Ed Frank

Yesterday Americans for Prosperity joined U.S. Senators Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, along with our friends at several other pro-taxpayer groups, for a Capitol Hill news conference spotlighting the shortcomings of the ethics, lobbying and earmark reform legislation Congress is considering this week.

Sen. Coburn had the line of the day, and perhaps one of the best lines ever, when he pointed out that many Senators don't have the, um, political courage to vote against a lackluster reform bill:

"They have reproductive organs the size of B-Bs that won't allow them to do the right thing."

Coburn is a board certified OB/GYN, so where his knowledge of the relative size of the male sexual organ comes from is anyone's guess.
