Bunning bids farewell

In a farewell speech, outgoing U.S. Senator Jim Bunning delivered an emotional final address but not before slamming several pieces of legislation and showing the public his surly side once more. First elected to the Senate in 1998, the Hall of Fame pitcher gained national attention for blocking an extension of unemployment benefits for millions […]

Jack attacks

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway was out of town during the heated nose-to-nose protests over U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning’s one-man crusade to block extension of unemployment benefits, but he did tape his first television campaign ad, which focuses on the recent fiasco. The advertisement also takes time to throw jabs […]

Lunchbox: Blame Bunning

Lead blocker: Everything from federal road construction to financial plans for the Ohio River Bridges Project is being blamed on U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning’s stubborn one-man filibuster over extending unemployment benefits. And because of his strained relationship with Republican leadership (read: U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell), Bunning’s obstructionism could cost the GOP, which is already troubled […]

Bunning +Teabaggers x Video Camera = Gold

No words can adequately set up this video, so just watch it. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqMGmgVLtOY&feature=player_embedded[/youtube] (h/t Jake, PageOne)

Bunning calls Bernanke’s B.S.

Instead of taking that money and lending to consumers and cleaning up their balance sheets, the banks started to pocket record profits and pay out billions of dollars in bonuses. Because you bowed to pressure from the banks and refused to resolve them or force them to clean up their balance sheets and clean out […]

Out of Sight, Out of (His) Mind, & Out to Pasture

The simple fact is that I have not raised the funds necessary to run an effective campaign for the U.S. Senate … I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure that the United States remains true to the principles that have made this country a beacon of freedom and economic opportunity for […]

Bunning to C-J: NO NEWS FOR YOU!!!

As much fun as it is to rag on The Courier-Journal, our hearts go out to political reporter Joe Gerth, whom was recently declared persona non grata by Sen. Jim Bunning’s office for reasons both dumb and dumber. That means no more conference calls, no more access, just a blatant “fuck you” to a guy […]

Bunning See N’ Say

Now that it’s getting warmer outside, Sen. Jim Bunning’s Crazy Glands are working overtime. And when Bunning’s veins are coursing with the Crazy, why, the incumbent sumbitch could say just any ol’ crazy thing that pops into his head (which we now know is occupied by a Gremlin pulling on the tiniest of levers). And […]

Bunning v. Blow-up Doll

Or winning elections — Senator Beanbag hath invoked the wrath of FOX 41′s Bill Lamb. Hilarity ensues as Lamb utilizes some novel, poetic imagery to lambast the incumbent Bunning. Get your lols out here.

Bunning: “Try, Try, Try Again”

File under “it practically writes itself”: Sen. Jim Bunning describes his re-election campaign’s fund-raising efforts as “lousy,” and then proceeded to urinate on every reporter in the room. Okay, not really. But perhaps he’s just trying to make his next quarter’s efforts seem better by comparison. Or maybe he’s having a hard time convincing his […]
