No pun intended.
What is wrong with people, though? Think Progress is reporting that some lunatic teabagger called in to C-Span this morning, fretting that his fervent prayers for Senator Byrd’s death had resulted in the incapacitation of GOP Senator Inhofe instead. No… no, really, I’m not kidding. The dude was practically in tears. Watch it below (really watch it — you will be stymied, and it’s barely a minute long):
Transcript of caller’s remarks (thanks, Blasky):
Our small Tea Bag group here in Waycroft, we… we got our vigil together and took Dr. Coburn’s instructions and prayed real hard that Senator Byrd that he would die and couldn’t show up at the vote the other night. How hard did you pray because I see one of our members is missing this morning. Did it backfire on us [begins crying] and one of our members die? How hard did you pray Senator, did you pray hard enough?
