Coburn for V.P.

Opinion Journal implicitly makes the case for Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) as Vice Presidential nominee (or President in 2012):
[Majority Leader Harry] Reid is telling reporters he will no longer tolerate the Oklahoma Republican blocking about 100 bills using the power Senate rules give individual member to stop legislation from coming to a floor vote. Mr. Coburn objects to many of the bills because he says they would enrich special interests and private developers at the expense of taxpayers...

"For those of you who may not know this, you cannot negotiate with Coburn," Mr. Reid told reporters. "It's something that you learn over the years, that it's a waste of time."
Stop the Pork. Coburn for Vice President!

I'm pleased to note that a Coburn staffer apparently surfed through here around 11:30 on his daily rounds of Coburnia in the blogosphere.

Welcome, Dirksen peons!
