Jim Bunning... Does New Funny Jim Bunning Things

News

Mark your calendars for the year 2010 everyone, because there's going to be at least one 2006-George-Allen-level comedic midterm race. Baseball pitcher Sen. Jim Bunning is running for reelection in Kentucky and will lose,loudly. Bunning resurfaced in the media recently for telling a pancreatic cancer-stricken Ruth Bader Ginsburg that she should go die alone, soon. Now Bunning has run into some local Kentucky trouble by snapping at some reporter who asked about his internal poll results, which wouldn't be a problem in and of itself (MSM lies anyway etc etc) except that he used the word "goddamn," which to Kentuckians is more appalling than raping 40 young children and a grandma.


Bunning recently conducted an internal poll to gauge his reelection chances and then held a conference call with reporters, one of whom inexplicably had this bizarre desire to ask Bunning about the results of his recently conducted internal poll to gauge his reelection chances.

To Bunning, this was just one more reporter lookin' for a con sarn handout:

Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., has conducted a poll on his 2010 bid for election to a third term, but he isn't making the results public.

"Let's say I did the polling," the senator told reporters on a conference call this morning.

What does that mean?

"That means it's none of your g--d--- business," Bunning said, who then followed up with a laugh. "If you paid the 20 grand for the poll, you can get some information out of it."

So yeah, he's losing by 70 points.

Keep in mind that the Louisville Courier-Journal doesn't censor the word "goddamn" by accident. It's a word that is censored in all Kentucky media because, oh we don't know, maybe it's the worst imaginable fucking word a human can say?

Predictably, Bunning swiftly issued an apology. Not to the reporter, whom he treated very rudely, but to Jesus:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning has apologized for using profanity in his weekly conference call with reporters on Tuesday. [...]

He released a statement on Wednesday that said: "I am sorry for taking the Lord's name in vain. After 59 years of dealing with the media, sometimes they get under your skin, but that is no excuse."

Ha ha he's going to Hell.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
