i think booman is right. if tom coburn supported no-strings disaster relief after the oklahoma tornadoes, he probably would have probably taken as much heat for hypocrisy as he will for insisting on offsets. so even though it looks like he is dicking over his own constituents this time, going the other way wasn't a necessarily a better choice for him.

that's assuming that coburn only cares about political calculus and doesn't give two shits about actual people.
