Mark Steyn vigorously defends Tom Coburn over 9/11 bill

Mark Steyn, subbing in for Rush today, gave an amazing monologue praising Senator Tom Coburn for what he did with the 9/11 first responders bill. Despite tons of emotional manipulation, he said Coburn and a few others held strong and managed to cut 4 billion in waste out of this bill that would have been headed straight for the trial lawyers. Steyn says that this is the good news coming from the lame duck session and that he hopes Coburn will apply this method to all legislation coming out of the Senate. Otherwise, he says, if we can’t start cutting this massive waste iconified by this one bill, then there won’t be any more America.



If you don’t have a ton of time, skip to 2:20, but the whole thing is worth listening.

I heard Dennis Miller interview him a couple of months ago. You can go to Miller’s site and still hear it. Not only is the guy (Miller too) pure genius he is funny as all get out. On the 8 billion bill. Can’t you just see the welfare kings and queens all over the Manhatten area now stepping up with their hands out? Sad reality is, a good portion of this money will be pissed away just like New Orleans/ Katrina. If I had time I’d tell you first hand accounts of wasted money from those ‘refugees’ that fled into Alabama. I saw with my own eyes. If these leeches would put in as much effort and time into actually trying to get a job, as compared to the time and skill they use up devising ways to milk us taxpayers, most of them would be productive working employed citizens!

Steyn is w/o a doubt the best fill-in guy I’ve heard. Someone plz give this man his own full-time radio show (unless he has one, in which case someone needs to point me in the direction of the stations that air him).

How about he gets Hannity’s slot on FNC instead?

But he is Canadian. So there’s that. Curling and whatnot.

I value Hannity’s consistency.

Knock yourself out. I agree he should move into a prime slot.

8 Billion/71,000= 112676$ per person.

How the hell could 71K people get close enough to Ground Zero to get sick from it?

Oh, never mind.
