Compassion: Thy Name is Bunning

bunning.jpgFormer Phillies “great” and ridiculously conservative U.S. Senator, Jim Bunning, is the kind of compassionate Senator who is more interested in humanity than he is in politics. He’d certainly like to see a Conservative Supreme Court, but he’s not so tacky as to hope for a painful death to one of its members.

Or maybe he is:

During a wide-ranging 30-minute speech on Saturday at the Hardin County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, Bunning said he supports conservative judges “and that’s going to be in place very shortly because Ruth Bader Ginsburg … has cancer.”
“Bad cancer. The kind that you don’t get better from,” he told a crowd of about 100 at the old State Theater.
“Even though she was operated on, usually, nine months is the longest that anybody would live after (being diagnosed) with pancreatic cancer,” he said.

What they the article failed to reveal, however, is that Bunning was probably smiling devilishly and playing with his mustache when he said that.

And now I don’t feel so awful wishing cancer upon Bunning. Hopefully, it won’t be of the nine months and you’re dead variety — I hope it sticks around for a couple of years, and debilitates him. Also: What in God’s name makes him think that Obama would appoint someone more conservative than Ginsberg to the bench?

What a fat-headed twatwaffle.

Yeah, I had the same thought, why would Obama appoint a conservative judge? Of course, the Main Squeeze pointed out that with Obama's "governing from the middle," we might be in trouble, since the supposed middle has been skewed so far to the right.

twatwaffle is my new favorite word.

Bunning is certifiable. As in half-senile with a dose of paranoia. He's famous in Kentucky -- he claimed little green men were following him around once at a big political rally.

I'm soooo proud of my elected official.

More bad news, Bunning: the Justice's cancer is often quickly fatal because it rarely caught as early as hers. With a little luck, she'll outlive your crazy ass.
