That Tom Coburn is a bit sneaky,
a favorite on gun control show Morning Joe + Joe and Mika he announces he WILL vote for cloture (making Mika smile) then a day later calls the Toomey-watered- own background check bill ‘un-workable’,
Well Tom, maybe your vote will be key in getting an ‘unworkable’ bill to Obama’s desk.

I think Coburn term-limited himself to two terms in the Senate. It will be good when he is gone; I one thought he was the best senator since Helms, but no more. OK people though probably don’t know how he has turned left.

Coburn and Toomey are real disappointments lately, I would have never expected either of them to turn into GOP establishment hacks when they were elected to the Senate. I'm glad Coburn is retiring, but it can't come fast enough. I heard some murmurs that Toomey had gone wobbly after being elected, but now it's certainly official. He's sort of become the national version of Illinois State Senator Matt Murphy... comes to everyone's attention by running against an odious uber-RINO, then morphs into RINO-lite after a couple years and starts doing what he condemned the RINO for doing.
I'm surprised that John Thune's name isn't on the list. He usually votes for cloture to please the beltway crowd, then votes "no" on final passage (knowing it will pass easily in the Dem controlled Senate) so he can maintain his "conservative" ratings and smooch over gullible conservatives about how he "stood up for gun owners" and blah blah blah. He's been completely invisible lately.
No real suprises from anyone else. Burr isn't as conservative as we were lead to beleive, and Flake lives up to his name (though he also gets "95% conservative" ratings for some odd reason)
