Cranky old baseball pitcher Sen. Jim Bunning, who is still being a dick for no reason or a stupid secret reason (kidney stone?) with regards to extending the Hobo Bean supply, was confronted in an elevator by some liberal journalists. He went insane. Is this person mentally stable enough to serve in the Senate? Unfortunately, yes. [Swampland]

    That this batshit-insane fucktard is still in the Senate is incontrovertible proof that Kentuckians are morons, fools, and imbeciles, though none was needed.

  • Chernobyl Soup

    Yet I still don’t hate him as much as I hate Lieberman.

    Disingenuous douchebag is disingenuous.

    Well sir, excuuuuuuuuuse ME!!!

  • Smoke Filled Roommate

    A ‘Senator-Only Elevator’? And I thought so much progress had been made..

  • SayItWithWookies

    Clearly the man doesn’t like to be inconvenienced — no matter how many thousands of people he has to render jobless or dead.

  • JMP

    Hey now, if we kicked out Senators for obvious insanity and/or senility, there would only be about a dozen or so of them left.

  • norbizness

    That’s what you get for bothering the automatons in Disney’s Animatronic Hall of Incontinent Reactionary Dickbags.

  • CapnFatback

    Don’t feel sorry for the reporter; fortunately, his last name is Figurelli, so he was able to catch a ride on his own elevator.

  • DustBowlBlues

    I remember during his last election, he would suddenly forget where he was and start babbling about his mommy. Or something like that. Anyway, he was showing clear signs of dementia which, given their love for Saint Reagan and his Alzheimer’s, makes Bunning the most beloved of Republics serving in the Senate.

    I’ll bet Spooky Doktor Tom is jealous that HE didn’t think of this. He’s probably hoping a bill to fund puppy rescue is next, so he can put a stop on it. Republics are dickwads. Some are worse than others.

  • OffTheRecord

    [re=522067]Come here a minute[/re]: Sigh. The theory amongst us morons, fools, and imbeciles is that the good senator actually took one too many baseballs upside the head. It’s kind of like when grandpa gets dementia but no one wants to deal with it so you just kind of hope he dies soon, except instead of death it is retirement. Although I suppose either would work.

  • Mr Blifil

    Teabaggers would contend that it is in fact THEIR elevator. At least the reporter had a fair complexion or god knows what the ossified old coot would have done CHEKYRMEDZ BUNNINATOR

  • sati demise

    [re=522085]DustBowlBlues[/re]: It does, however, give the Dems a chance to say “see? Even one senile, mentally impaired, legally incompetent person can stop us from doing the will of the American people, blah, blah, blah.

  • BigDupa

    Was that Frank Howard in the elevator with him? If not, he should get his Phllie-Tigers ass off it and walk! Bastard.

  • JMP

    [re=522078]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Hey, the guy apparently had work instead of watching a college basketball game he wanted to see. Why, that has got to be one of the greatest indignities forced on a man since the other day when family responsibilities made me save and quit on a video game when I wanted to keep playing.

  • BlueStateLiberal

    Wow, this says so much for the voters in Kentucky. I can’t believe anyone would elect this dickhead, much less get in the same elevator as him.

  • Snarkalicious

    I quote the Bible: “Suffer the little children…the poor…those…meek…merciful…pure…peacemakers” (Luke 18:16, Matthew 5:3-10)


  • Extemporanus

    [re=522068]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: Whom do you think was operating the elevator?

  • elburrito

    In his last election, running against an EYE-Talian, he demonstrated that he is fucking insane. And a dick.

  • rottenart

    So “Unemployment Benefits and Medicare Payments Held up By Stodgy Old Prick” just isn’t sexy enough for the MSM or what?

    It’s also frightening how many of these assholes’ followers think that both of these things are GOOD.

    Like, gag me with a spoon.

  • AutomaticPilot

    The worst part was when he called the reporter a cunt.

  • elburrito

    His 05 campaign proved him to be mentally unstable. And a dick.

  • ForTheTurnstiles

    Between him and McConnell, which one pitches and which one catches?

  • ElitistMarxist

    Somewhere there is a team named “Wildcats” playing some game somewhere, and Ol’ Kentucky Bunning simply will not miss it (but only when reporters try to talk to him, not when he has to show up to renew his hold)…

  • petehammer

    I want to shove an elevator into his pee hole.

    No, Senator, excuse ME!

  • Extemporanus

    From the original story on ABC’s constipated poop blog:

    “Senator Bunning was even more expressive before the cameras arrived, using a little sign language.

    When Senate producer Z. Byron Wolf spotted Bunning exiting his office, Bunning said, ‘I’m not talking to anybody.’ When Wolf asked him to stay and talk to our cameras, Bunning walked toward the elevator and shot the middle finger over his head.

    He always did have a pretty mean knuckle ball.

  • NegativeZero

    Is it just me, or does it look like the second time the door fails to close it opens exactly when Bunning presses a button? Anyone want to place bets on whether Bunning hit the ‘door open’ button?

    I suppose when you can’t tell the difference between ‘open’ and ‘close’ it’s understandable that you can’t discern things like ‘helping people’ and ‘condemning people to hobo beans’

  • ElitistMarxist

    [re=522082]Dave J.[/re]: Stop being mean to retards!!!!!1@@

  • Hooray For Anything

    [re=522091]sati demise[/re]: That would be assuming that the Democrats were smart enough to use this to their political advantage. And even if they did, Sarah Palin would post something on her facebook page about not paying enough respect to old people and the entire Democratic Party would wind up apologizing.

  • Joshua Norton

    Hey, you have to follow his logic here. No more debt! Well, no more debt right now. Too many Democrats in office. Wait until we have a Republican Congress and a Republican President again and then you can spend and steal like a drunken CEO.

    Repuglikker deficits don’t count.

  • JMP

    [re=522095]Snarkalicious[/re]: I think there’s an appropriate line from the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed be the senile, doddering old fools, for theirs is the power in the Senate; as it is in Rome, as it shall be in on the other side of the world two thousand years hence.”

  • coolcatdaddy

    [re=522080]norbizness[/re]: They used the brain labeled “Abby Normal” on that one.

  • BobTheBuilder

    Geez, Wonkette – a Republican Senator says “tough shit” about the unemployed and you act like it’s some big deal.

  • finallyhappy

    [re=522148]BobTheBuilder[/re]: Really! Isn’t that what they all would say if asked?

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=522148]BobTheBuilder[/re]: Bunning’s real motivation, truth be told, is that all the poor white Appalachian trash in the eastern part of his state will simply pack up and piss off to West Virginia, where all the poors rightfully belong.

  • AddHomonym

    “I’ve got to get to the floor!!!” In what other context might he have said that?

  • Sparky McGruff

    I still remember Bunning’s famous speech on the floor of the Senate, where he so memorably said, “Give me liberty or give me… Where’s my goddamn oatmeal? Where the hell am I? Who stole my damn breakfast?”

  • qwerty42

    Reading the comments at Swampland, I saw many references to “porkulus” … that is so early ’09.

  • Lazy Media

    Did ABC hire a bunch of Bill O’Reilly’s ambush staff to be reporters? That was insanely lame. Bunning’s a dick, but he came off better in that exchange than the ABC assholes did.

  • Katydid

    [re=522098]rottenart[/re]: Pricks and assholes reminded me to tune in Chris Matthews, which I never do, on doctor’s orders, but I fell off the wagon today, and right at the start he sided with the bunny, saying something like, should we really be borrowing from the Chinese to fund unemployment? No, not if we each make 5 large we don’t.

    And then his lead was a much less important story. Someone in DC punch that motherfucker in both of his faces, please.

  • WarAndG

    Ha huh ha huh. They said “bunning.” Ha huh. Who are you “bunning”, Butthead?


    Excuse me! This is a Senator only elevator! Do you know how many years I had to suck dicks to get to ride in this? And how many different dicks? Just let me ride in the Senator’s elevator. Please, please, just leave me in my elevator.

  • Gopherit

    [re=522102]AutomaticPilot[/re]: no, but he did flip off the reporters Klassy.

    Fuck you Bunning. How’d the GOP get you to do this after they fucked you so hard on re-election? Live boy or dead girl?

  • HopeyChangey

    Lemme get this straight…the elevator belongs to the senators, but the desk in the oval office belongs to the people? I’m so confused. I need a flow chart and a score card and maybe a power point presentation to keep all of this shit straight.

  • sati demise

    [re=522122]Hooray For Anything[/re]: and that would be a win for everyone, ?
    bags and bags of dicks to be exact.
    and goddamnit, didnt we used to have a nice colored in here to push the buttons?

  • qwerty42

    Word has been that he is really po’d because the KY GOP was kind of forcing him out of the senate race. So he doesn’t much like either party.

  • lochnessmonster

    Sen Bunning should be reminded that it is NOT HIS elevator it is the PEOPLES ELEVATOR BECAUSE WE THE TAXPAYERS FREAKING PAY FOR IT!

  • snideinplainsight

    He’s one of God’s precious angels –

  • OffTheRecord

    [re=522219]qwerty42[/re]: Basically, yes. He has really gone rogue. Mitch, who actually supports extending the benefits, muscled him out to make room for Trey Grayson (this was before the Son of Ron came along) and now the old bastard is going to piss off as many people as possible on his way out

  • Hedley Lamar

    Can’t we fly a plane into Bunning or something?

  • Dustin de Wynde

    During my DC Bike Courier/Raver days I used to ride those elevators with glitter all over my face.

    I’d forget that I had that junk on somedays and man would I get some looks in the lobbies and elevators of Congress.

    A regular tension convention it was when the elevators would get crowded.

    Good times.

  • Allyson

    I’m walking here! I’m walking here!

  • MarSF

    Bunning is going out with a bang. Maybe this is due to the fact that all the assholes in his own Party hate him, along with everyone else.

    I did hear that the supporters of Rand Paul are going to hold a rally for Old Jim, so he still has some Teabaggers in his corner!

  • qwerty42

    [re=522237]OffTheRecord[/re]: Also interesting is the way Bunning is doing it: using the Republican talking points to justify it. So the GOP is having some difficulty taking him on and Reid is acting as though there is nothing he can do, except, maybe, hold the Republicans feet to the fire. I suspect there is a much bigger battle going on and we are only seeing a portion.

  • Holy Cow!!

    He just proves how rigged elections are here in Kentucky. No one votes for him yet somehow him keeps getting reelected. It’s gotten so bad that Mitch McConnell publicly disowned him and cut off his campaign funds to force him into retirement.

    Does anyone realize what a Herculean feat it is to embarrass Mitch McConnell into taking action?

  • CaliforniaMike

    Bunning is Tri-G’s dad, but Sarah doesn’t know it. It was an Easter Party, she was drunk and there was this guy dressed up in an Easter Bunny suit. She thought it was Todd, but he had already passed out when Bunny(ing) fed her the high cheese.

    famous last words

  • momus

    He just doesn’t want to be remembered, solely for folding down the stretch in the 1964 NL pennant race and taking the Phillies with him. So, he’s trying to take the Federal government with him as he folds his senate career.

  • katrina

    I noticed he has an onion on his belt.

  • Sparky McGruff

    [re=522166]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: If we keep feeding them unemployed folks, they won’t go away. Besides, if they freeze to death and/or starve, it will start bringing the unemployment rate down!

  • ArugulaTeleprompterz

    Ugh. As a native Kentuckian that has had to live up close and personal with this fucktwat for many many years, I would like to personally apologize to all the hobos that now have no checks with which to buy their beans. And also I moved out of KY 5 months ago so as not to have to take responsibility for such nonsense any longer. I blame the general stupidity of the average Kentuckian on poisoned ground water and a piss poor education system.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=522439]ArugulaTeleprompterz[/re]: I blame it on not prayin’ ta Jeebus hard enuf… oh, and on the wood-alcohol in the moonshine used to make the most-popular brands of infant formula…

  • Chi-town_Vinny

    I just heard a guy on Mike Malloy’s radio show say that he knew that Bunning would cut the baseball with his belt buckle when he was pitching. Shows that he always was a cheating, lying bastard.

  • O_o

    Oh what I wouldn’t give to see that guy slip a cockpunch to Bunning right as the doors were closing.

  • carlgt1

    he was a good pitcher, when did he become such a dick?

  • AL-Frankins-a-douche

    Oh come on. Bunning is just following the law that Obama set down that states no more spending without it first being paid for. This was done to keep from raising the deficit. Furthermore, there was an unemployment and Cobra extension in the jobs bill but Harry Ried removed it before it went to a vote. Ried also didn’t have to wait until the last minute on Friday to ask for an extension. He could have done it at any time with a majority vote which only would have needed 51 to pass. Instead he waited and asked for an audible vote which needs to be unanimous. Nothing like putting the focus on someone else so everyone will forget that you’re the one who nixed the extension from the jobs bill. By the way, that was supported by Obama.
    So do your homework before shooting off your mouth, or you just might come off looking like an uneducated douche, like Al Frankin.
