Tom Coburn Is Just a Sad Lesbian Cat Lady Now

Typical communist/PETA fanatic.Poor old Tom Coburn was a wingnut proto-teabagger Republican Hero until the other day, when he went INSANE and told a crowd of morons they should maybe not be so hateful and personal about politics, when reasonable people can disagree, etc., and Nancy Pelosi is actually a “nice lady.” Wonkette op-art contributor Lauri Apple takes Coburn’s transformation to its only logical conclusion, and you must see it.

This should be Tom Coburn's official portrait.
See more of Lauri Apple’s art at her Trend Pieces website or right here at Wonkette.

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


  1. BlueStateLiberal

    Oh, look at those sweet sensitive eyes! And his complexion is so smooth and clear! Way to go, Tom!

  2. JMP

    Wouldn’t a lesbian have dogs, not cats?

    Coburn’s biggest crime, beyond even calling Pelosi nice, was telling the crowd to get their news from sources other than Fox. He’s dead to them now.

  3. Crank Tango

    today, we are all lesbian cat ladies. Truth be told, I wasn’t that far off anyway. Except for the dick having.

  4. freakishlystrong

    Lauri is awesome; she even captured that contemplative look he gets while he’s blocking unemployment extensions. Kudos.

  5. Brendan M.

    The problem with painting such a lovely and flattering portrait is that by the time the paint has dried Coburn proved that he is most assuredly a sociopathic asshole, momentary decency and sanity notwithstanding.

  6. Radiotherapy

    Wait, the lesbian cat lady is a family practice doctor who specializes in Ob-Gyn and has had cancer, reportidly, twice. Even though there is nothing funny about cancer, that would explain the mastectomy appearance of the left chest.

    [re=551439]geminisunmars[/re]: Oh, that’s an Oklahoma commemorative necklace. It says “OK.”

  8. Hamster

    [re=551428]Capitol Hillbilly[/re]: I get the feeling everything in that room is a dildo cozy, including the cats.

  9. germansteel

    Needz moar bible. Tom’s a deacon, counsellor to horny C Street Republicans everywhere. And, bribe bag lady, to boot.

  10. One Yield Regular

    I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again, Wonkette. Enough with the faux-iPod awards for caption & blingee contests. Can we haz Lauri Apple painting?

  11. What Fresh Hell is This?

    So, you ask, what does Tom Coburn say on this contagious subject? Let’s turn back the clock to October 12, 2004.

    “Lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in southeast Oklahoma that they’ll only let one girl go to the bathroom. Now think about it. Think about that issue. How is it that that’s happened to us?”

  12. BOOBIES!

    I’d hit that. The guy, or the woman, but not that cats. Won’t have nothing to do with the cats.

  13. snideinplainsight

    [re=551481]What Fresh Hell is This?[/re]: Geez! How do I find thes “southeast Oregon” place? Sounds cool to me!

  14. Aurelio

    [re=551486]snideinplainsight[/re]: It’s southeast Oklahoma, and you don’t wanna go there, not even for the hot lesbian action.

  15. user-of-owls

    [re=551486]snideinplainsight[/re]: Alas, it’s “southeast Oklahoma” you’re pining for…and I can tell you from experience that it is somewhat different than “southeast Oregon”…rampant lesbianism notwithstanding.

  16. weejee

    [re=551488]Aurelio[/re]: [re=551486]snideinplainsight[/re]: Yes, the real action is just across the border in De Queen, Arkansas.

  17. Speed Ball

    [re=551431]freakishlystrong[/re]: The cat by his right arm has same look on its face. Wrinkle on brow, thoughtful.

  18. inedalo

    maybe coburn wants to run for Prez? he’s a doctor, ain’t he? and could perform lots of abortions in the White House.
    remember, you catholics out there- if men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

  19. Speed Ball

    When Calico dies, Tom immediately replaces with identical Calico, and gives it the same name. This is how he keeps going.

  20. Aurelio

    Tom Coburn…told a crowd of morons they should maybe not be so hateful and personal about politics.

    What’s this? Tom looks like a bull dyke, but inside he’s really a femme? What kind of sexual orientation is THAT? I haz a confused.

  21. Accordion-o-rama

    [re=551481]What Fresh Hell is This?[/re]: To be fair, that comment was just before the 2004 elections when the GOP theme was “Gays will kill us all”. Here’s a time line:

    2000: Blow jobs will kill us all

    2002: Iraqis will kill us all

    2004: Gays will kill us all

    2006: Peaceniks will kill us all

    2008: The negro will kill us all

    2010: Socialists will kill us all

  22. Aurelio

    [re=551559]Accordion-o-rama[/re]: Okay, here’s your straight line: What will the theme be in 2011?

  23. DustBowlBlues

    [re=551481]What Fresh Hell is This?[/re]: Yay. You got it in. Remembered when it happened. “8 ft. Lesbian Attacks Little Dixie.”

  24. DustBowlBlues

    When he had the momentary lapse into semi-decency, I told you guys not to take it seriously. Wasn’t he attacking Rachel Maddow last night? So even mavericky Tom has to suck the Faux News dick.

  25. Beanball

    [re=551620]the problem child[/re]: Don’t use the bracket “[” thingie, use the sideways carat “<” thingie. (Drop the quote marks, obvs.)

    [i] = [i]


    HTML magic!

  26. heathenish

    [re=551482]BOOBIES![/re]: Is there ANYthing on the planet you WOULDN’T hit? I probably don’t want to know what that might be, though.

  27. Jukesgrrl

    I was anticipating a Coburn smackdown from Rachel Maddow tonight, but Lauri beat her to it.

  28. Darkness

    [re=551562]Aurelio[/re]: [re=551559]Accordion-o-rama[/re]: Hm. . .

    2012 Lawyers will kill us all

    2012 Taxes will kill us all (This seems most likely. Kicking the financial can down the road is a republican speciality)

    2012 Aliens will kill us all (green or mexican, or mexican with a salsa verde, if you prefer)

    Other than the repubs know damn well who is buttering their bread, i’d say 2012 the Chinese bankers will kill us all
