Profanity Lands Senator Entire Story

337_NoCussingCoverLRG2.jpgNo doubt, sometimes it takes cussing to get a person’s thoughts across. And if it’s a senator, all the better.

Such was the case for Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.), who is not known to be the warmest, fuzziest of senators. He earned himself an entire story for his foul language.

An afternoon headline in Politico:

Sen. Jim Bunning holds floor: ‘Tough s–t’

Read the full story here.

HuffPost spelled it out: Jim Bunning Repeatedly Blocks Unemployment Benefits Extension, Tells Dem ‘Tough Shit’

TPM went with: Bunning: My Obstruction Of Unemployment Extension Made Me Miss My Basketball Game

In 2004, the media had a field day when then-V.P. Dick Cheney told Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) to “Go f–k yourself” on the Senate floor.

Bunning could opt to join the “No Cussing Club”. We don’t recommend it, but it’s an option. We hear White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a founding member.
