Coburn: Franken-free life is great
It's like playground politics with these elected officials. Sen. Tom Coburn, in the latest winning quote relating to the Minnesota recount contest, made a fool of himself.

"The battle in Washington, D.C. is real," Coburn said, according to the Tulsa Beacon. "Every day in the Senate without Al Franken is a great day."
Hopefully they can hug it out, Obama style.
