    Or more precisely, throws Foxnews and FANS under the bus:

    Coburn: Don't believe Fox

    Here is a bit of a signal moment in Republican politics: Oklahoma conservative Tom Coburn tells an angry town hall crowd in his home state to step back from the vilification of Democrats they've picked up from Fox News:

    “What we have to have is make sure we have a debate in this country so that you can see what’s going on and make a determination yourself,” Coburn added and then again warned the crowd against the myths perpetrated by Fox News.

    “So don’t catch yourself being biased by Fox News that somebody is no good. The people in Washington are good. They just don’t know what they don’t know,” Coburn said.

    Fascinating stuff.

    My God. The GOP is finally figuring out that they are going to have to do something substantive (and not resort to petty bullshit) to gain any traction.

    They've finally figured out that cow-towing to wing nuttery only serves to hurt them in the end.

    If this signals a sea change (which I am skeptical of), then welcome back GOP.

    He added and then "warned the crowd against the myths perpetrated by Fox News"? Can you cite the exact quote? Nooo because there isn't one.

    You stupid fucks will believe anything.

    You want me to take the word of a Washington insider?

    Get real!

    They're all corrupt. Every last one of them regardless of party.

    I'm sure Coburn will deny any of this said about him if it wasn't true.
