From the Houston Chronicle:

I don't think I've ever heard a U.S. Senator use the word "chicken", other than when ordering a meal.

I must admit that he has a point, but I don't agree with his name-calling.

On the other hand, if the shoe fits. . .

If you read the whole story it seems like this guy is pretty blunt about everything. Calling senators cowards isn't exactly polite or nice politics. I'm guessing that's just how he is and part of his appeal to his constituents in Oklahoma.

Especially daring for a congress member from Oklahoma, when you consider how much of the FAA is based out of OKC...

Coburn's been a political maverick his whole career. This is no surprise to us here...

He speaks a great truth here. Insults the Chickens of the world, but he is right. Too bad bad nobody at FAA will be held accountable.


I don't understand everything I don't know about this.
