Before health care vote, Republican senator says we should pray for God to smite Democrats.

In a debate on a vote for health care reform, Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma said the American people should pray for something to happen to keep Democrats from voting.  That led to a debate about what Coburn meant, with some interpreting his remarks as wishing harm on Democrats, 92-year-old Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia in particular, that God should favor the Republicans over Democrats, etc.  One defender said that maybe Coburn just wanted a blizzard to keep voting Democrats away, as if that were okay.
