Are Washington Republicans learning from Wake County Republicans?
 
Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, a leading opponent of the health-care reform bill, said Sunday: “What the American people should pray is that somebody can’t make the vote.”
 
Democrats protested that Coburn was wishing misfortune on a Senator.
 
Maybe Coburn was just hoping that – a la the WakeCounty commissioners – a Democrat will go to the bathroom long enough to let Republicans prevail.
 
Given the heavy-handed rule of Republicans when they ran Congress, they hardly have room to squawk now.
 
Harry Reid’s strategy is bold and brutal: We’ve got the votes, and we’re going to pass the bill.
 
It’s about time Democrats showed some ruthlessness.
