Senator talks about Ginsberg

Who gave this guy a mic?
U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning predicted over the weekend that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would likely be dead from pancreatic cancer within nine months.

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.
Idiot. You don't talk about a sitting Justice that way. Cancer is a very private matter, a battle fought between the person and the disease, hopefully with the help of their family, etc.

As a U.S. Senator, shut your mouth. Talk about the stimulus and what you're doing for jobs and the economy and to keep our taxes low. Do not talk about the ailing Justice who deserves more respect than a 9-month diagnosis from some schlup.

And lastly, I reiterate: What a SCHMUCK!
Bunning, who only has about $150,000 in his campaign account, has been criticized because of his inability to raise money.

"I'm not only asking for your support, but if you have a $25 check somewhere, or whatever, you can send it, I'll cash it," he told the group.
Who says that?
