Coburn is Hooch, of courseMany of Republican Senator Tom Coburn’s Oklahoma constituents were INCENSED to see their senator locked in a pornographic gay embrace with the President after his fake state of the union address a couple weeks back. In the aftermath, Coburn received 50 letters from outraged citizens asking him why he would go and do such a dirty thing with a known socialist on national TV.

The answer is this: Coburn and Obama actually like each other (sexually). They entered the Senate together in 2004 and became quick buddies and even cosponsored some bills:

Coburn told reporters in 2004 that he had “a wonderful time” with Obama during the orientation.

“I think I can work with him,” he said then.

And the two did work together, cosponsoring bills to ensure strict oversight of government aid for Hurricane Katrina victims and to require all government grants and contracts to be posted on the Internet in a database.

So, despite the fact that one is a godless communist and the other is a very conservative doctor with a crazy hairdo, they somehow manage to get along. They are Washington DC’s own Turner and Hooch.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, Barack Obama form unlikely friendship [The Oklahoman]

  • MARCdMan

    Does he hunt dogs? He’s holding that dead-looking mongrel up like a hunting trophy.

    Kelly Robinson and Alexander Scott together again.

    “Coburn told reporters in 2004 that he had “a wonderful time” with Obama during the orgasmentation.”

    Heh, heh!


    OK, that wasn’t really as funny as I thought it would be.

  • CivicHoliday

    Secretly, this friendship is a result of Coburn fearing Rock Obama. In Bed. (hey, if it works for fortune cookies…)

  • Sussemilch

    These are the simple rules, Coburn. No barking, now growling, you will not lift your leg to anything in this chamber. This is not your Congress. No slobbering, no chewing, you will curb your foreign travel. No begging for pork, no sniffing of crotches, and you will not drink from my toilet.

  • Tommy Says Soooo, Jugdish!

    Well at least Turner & Hooch was more historically accurate than the Da Vinci Code.

  • JadedDIssonance

    Cue Randy Newman…

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    Wait just a second – you can actually get along with someone yet still disagree on most issues?

    This changes everything.

  • getoffmylawn

    Love is blind.

  • WadISay

    [re=260522]Tommy Says Soooo, Jugdish![/re]: Also, I bet Turner would have voted for Hooch’s stimulus package.

  • donner_froh

    Damn. Coburn doesn’t try to hide his manly gay love for the President:

    How better to influence somebody than love them?

    We’re totally different, but we respect each other immensely, and we have a personal relationship that’s outside our politics.

    “Am I to hate him because he has a different viewpoint than I do? Or should I love him and try to touch his heart and change him?

  • SayItWithWookies

    “Am I to hate him because he has a different viewpoint than I do? Or should I love him and try to touch his heart and change him?”

    Someone’s got a boy-crush on the president.

  • Origami

    WHOA! Two educated middle-aged men who have an interest in politics found something in common? Color me dumbfounded! This does surprise me since Obama is known to be mean and hard to get along with. I mean, that is just fact. They must be lovers.

    P.S. The video in the source link makes me sad.

  • norbizness

    Coburn’s a doctor in Oklahoma; I think the entire physician licensing exam is just a practicum involving a bible, two rattlesnakes, and a vial of purified miracle spring water from the Well of Zohassadar.

  • bitchincamaro

    Reach around. The aisle.

  • norbizness

    [re=260530]SayItWithWookies[/re]: When I read “try to touch his heart,” I think he’s speaking literally, like Mola Ram.

  • whiskey tango foxtrot

    They’re so perfect – one’s a doctor, one’s a lawyer. Just like in the Cosbys!

  • DoesThisKool-AidTasteFunny?

    As a resident of the completely backward state of Oklahoma, I am, sadly, a constituent of Tom Coburn. He and global-warming-denying Jim Inhofe are disgusting pustules on the ass of an already pathetic hellhole. The idea that Crazy Tom “Abortion-Doctors-Should-Be-Executed” Coburn might have a gay crush on Prez Sexy Barry is the only thing I have ever remotely liked about him.

  • Urbanachiever

    Ah, Oklahoma–the state where I spent my childhood years continues to make me proud….

  • PeteJayhawk v2.0

    Reading the comments on the Oklahoman article made me realize how thankful to the Lord Baby Jesus I am that I don’t live in Oklahoma.

  • Miller

    Ahh Washington, where not cursing at each other as you fight to have the others belief system legally negated and cosign an uncontroversial bill equals BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!!!! I do like that Coburn refers to Obama as one of the ‘good ones’/’honest ones’ before hurriedly explaining that he means liberals and not ‘the mud people’.

  • norbizness

    Riddle me this, Batman: why doesn’t Texas float off into the Gulf of Mexico…?

  • Jenna’s Sloppy Seconds

    “Obama Reciprocates” – I had no idea Hopey was versatile. How refreshingly non-selfish of him.

  • totoro

    Coburn, wielding the credibility of a doctor, should inform his constituents that studies have shown that the black does not rub off and is not in fact due to foul secretions of the negro liver.

    [re=260557]norbizness[/re]: Because Arizona sucks?

    Damn! That was supposed to be Oklahoma, wasn’t it?

  • StephanieInCA

    Why is there a picture of Tom Hanks and Joe Lieberman? I don’t get it.

  • smellyal8r

    [re=260557]norbizness[/re]: Uhh….Oklahoma sucks? nyuk, nyuk.

  • Woodwards Friend

    The image of Barry and Coburn spooning is really hot.

  • Come here a minute

    I think the correct spelling is Cockburn, so there you have it.

  • Mr Blifil

    Help me out. Coburn was the one obsessed with lesbians in girl’s locker rooms, wasn’t he? What the fuck would Obama, a father of two small girls, see in this douche?

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=260576]totoro[/re]: But who will reach out to the REAL AmericUns who don’t trust those liberal college elitist doctors, and prefer the prayers of Kenyan witch doctors and the discretion of small town meth-dealing quacks? Who will think of them??

  • Bowdoin

    Coburn sponsored a bill after Katrina which would’ve stripped the earmark for the Bridge to Nowhere, much to Simple Sarah’s chagrin, and send it to Nawleans. Seemed sensible, only, it was gang-tackled by everybody in the Senate. I even wrote to our two California senators, asking ’em why they both voted against stripping earmarks. One wrote back, pointing me to her website. The old Truth Commission gambit. The other I’m still waiting to hear from.

    My point was, he’s a Repugnant, but at least he’s a crazy actual maverick of sorts. Nobody thought so enough, I guess.

  • TeddyS

    That photograph of Senator Coburn and his intimate companion is charming.

  • AxmxZ

    [re=260543]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Seems especially likely in light of recent Parker quote about “cutting open Obama to find the little smiling Buddha inside” or whatever. Looks like “eviscerate Obama” is turning into a meme.

  • TheMac

    How better to influence somebody than love them?

    Indeed, Coburn. A deep, manly affection.

  • Scandalabra

    The dog is way cuter than that human hairball who is strangling him.
