Senators Coburn And Nelson Sing Rocket Man

Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma bet Democratic Senator Bill Nelson of Florida on the BCS title game.  Like most Republicans this year, Coburn lost when the Florida Gators beat the Oklahoma Sooners 24-14.  To pay up, Coburn had to serenade Nelson with his rendition of the  70’s Elton John Classic.  Nelson is a former astronaut, and Coburn is a doctor.  Makes you wonder if Coburn had won, would Nelson have had to sing “Bad Case of  Loving You”.  Being a good sport, Nelson didn’t make Coburn go it alone.


Of course, it would be virtually impossible to top the 1978 version of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin song as interpreted by William Shatner.
