Dr. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma's junior U.S. senator, prides himself on being a straight-talkin' regular guy.
He'll be the first to tell you that he's not one of those Washington weasels who will say whatever it takes to keep the voters happy.
But even Coburn turns into a weasel when it suits his purpose. The most recent example was Coburn's appearance on CNN, where he was a Big Time Weasel regarding the GOP line on BP and the oil spill.
Coburn didn't want to get caught on one side or the other, which is when the Big Weasel tactic comes into play. Read and see the video report here.
