Check out this column, by Robert Novak, which describes the heinous and corrupt behavior of Republican Senator Tom Coburn, M.D., who has the distinction of being the only sitting Senator currently being charged under Senate ethics rules.

The charge? Sen. Coburn is accused of earning too much money in his home state, where he delivers babies when he's not working in the Senate. In fact, Sen. Coburn is so dastardly in his corrupt behavior that he even made continuing to deliver babies a campaign promise. Well, the U.S. Senate isn't having that, so it did the only thing it could under the circumstances: Charge Coburn with ethics violations.

Can you believe this? Apparently, Sen. Coburn is extremely unpopular with both parties in the Senate because he has a reputation for challenging huge spending bills, which, as you know, are the main reason our taxes are so high; they're also the main vehicle for most Senators to show that they've done something for their campaign contributors. When Coburn wouldn't follow the routine, the truly corrupt Senators worked to get him out of the chamber. He's no good for them.

Of course, if we had a real media in this country, this story, and not the Tom DeLay story, would be front-page news. Unfortunately, that isn't the case, so we can just sit back and listen to the baseless allegations against DeLay while a really good politician is kicked out of office. What a shame.
