WaPo’s Milbank Dubs Bunning “The Screwball”


It’s the summer of Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) — oh, that’s right, it’s still winter. Thank God for Bunning in any season. WaPo’s Dana Milbank continues the Bunning saga with a sketch today about the 78-year-old senator’s possibly “crazy” ways. There is no mincing of words, no official diagnosis, but for Bunning, this kind of press can’t be helpful.

An excerpt:
“He said his opponent looked like one of Saddam Hussein’s sons. He suggested that he and his wife had been roughed up by ‘little green doctors’ at a political picnic. He refused to debate in person, instead doing so by teleconference from Republican National Committee offices in Washington, where he used a teleprompter.

Just over a year ago, Bunning resumed his erratic form when he predicted in public that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would probably be dead from pancreatic cancer within nine months.”
