Ross Douthat: Coburn 'Intellectually Honest" | Blue Oklahoma
Ross Douthat, a conservative columnist for The New York Times, published a glowing profile of U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn Monday that incredibly failed to mention the defining element of the Oklahoma senator's career: obstructionism. Douthat, we can only speculate, agrees with every one of Coburn's numerous and legendary holds on legislation, but the writer's failure to focus on the senator's political theatrics in his sycophantic article makes his commentary seem disingenuous.
