Bunning isn’t worried about reelection, so the Democrats screaming “YOU HATE UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE!!!” isn’t going to work on him.
In the end, that is the ONLY thing this “Jobs” bill is about, making Republicans vote against “Jobs”.
We have some REAL WHACKOS running the White House and Congress now, folks

Kudos to Sen. Bunning.
Now if he can convince some of his colleagues to get some backbone before he leaves . . . .

It's too bad the RINOs running the NRSC and those in KY never realized what they had in Senator Bunning. It's funny, but the very things that made him unpopular as a Senator- his gruff attitude, his contentious relationships with the press and leadership, and his stubborness are the very same qualities that so many Kentuckians value in themselves.

Of course, the rest of the story is very unflattering to the Democrats. They’ve had this deadline for months. They know they can pass a bill to fix it. But instead, they did NOTHING, wasting their time on health care.
Now, it’s so late they were trying to pass a 1-month extension so they could get time to do the real bill, which they expect will pass easily.
So while it’s great that Bunning is stopping this, the democrats have nobody to blame but themselves for not taking care of this months ago. All they had to do is fashion the new bill, bring it up last month, and file cloture. They could be voting today on the real bill, not a one-month extension.
But Harry Reid is incompetent. He failed to get dozens of political nominations through a senate where he had 60 votes. ALL he had to do was bring up all of them, and file cloture papers for each, and he could have finished them all. But he was too busy.
“Rockefeller also noted that Bunnings objection could turn off televisions for more than 1 million households, since the package has provisions dealing with the switch to digital TV.”
What a frigging travesty! No TV. Oh what are we to do?
Country is broke and these asshats are spending money on crap like this.

I’ve long believed that Al Franken would usher in a return of fisticuffs to the Senate floor, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Bunning was the one who administered the a$$-whoopin’.
