The Kentucky Senate race was getting quite boring. Leave it to eccentric, Looney Tune Jim Bunning to heat things up. One would like to think that the outgoing Senator who was shunned by the McConnell machine because he is a can or two short of a six pack decided to shake up this race but then you realize that well, Bunning is a can or two short of a six pack. However, his callous, uncaring and hypocritical "stand" earlier this week against the nation's unemployed has indeed ignited the Kentucky Senate race, which quite frankly was becoming a yawner.
Before speaking any on the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate and their deep love for Senator Bunning, I think it would be fitting for some theme music to introduce Kentucky Republicans:
Of course, hoping to harnass the looney-tune tea-bagger energy of folks like the Hummer Guy here in Paducah, both Republican candidates love them some Jim Bunning. First we had Rand Paul, quite eccentric son of former Libertarian Ron Paul who pretty much says "tough crap" to all the people who were unemployed by Republican policies of greed that crashed the economy:
Here are his supporters supporting the most maniacal Junior Senator of Kentucky, shot by the founder of our site Jim Pence:
Of course, one wonders where all this Republican concern for fiscal responsibility was when they were crashing the economy and putting millions of Americans out of work in the first place. But typically, in the narrow-minded Republican world their huge failures in the last decade and the lessons they taught are completely forgotten.
Trey Grayson not only loved him some Bunning too:
"I would proudly stand up to ensure that programs are paid for and think that this is further evidence of mismanagement of the Senate by Harry Reid. If we had not wasted time debating and passing a pet bill for Reid, we would not have been in the situation that led to the delay. I agree with Senators Bunning and McConnell that the government has a responsibility to pay for its programs and a good place to start would be to cut funding from the stimulus in order to pay for the extension of unemployment benefits. If the stimulus had created jobs as promised, then we would not need more unemployment insurance." (Trey Grayson)
Wow, now that is real Kentucky Republican skill. He managed to brownnose the Looney-Tune Kentucky Tea-Baggers, McConnell and Bunnning in one fell swoop. He also released an ad showing just how "responsible" he will be when he is allowed to preach the religion of McConnellism in the United States Senate:
Man, both these guys are very dangerous. When you cannot even admit that Jim Bunning is out there like Pluto you are either just as eccentric or worse yet just do not care and seek to score cheap political points on the backs of those "lazy" Americans who just will not work because their jobs were outsourced.
Now, for a little sanity from Bluegrass state, whose Junior Senate seat will hopefully be just as blue. First, Daniel Mongiardo pounded the actions of Bunning and led a rally to protest the actions of Bunning. Here he is in another video shot by our founder, Jim Pence:
He also released an ad recently on the Bunning fiasco:

Either Democrat in Kentucky's race has a chance to win and both Republican candidates represent another Jim Bunning, except this time they will be lock in step with McConnell. Democrats can win this seat in Kentucky as a firewall in case we lose others if we support the eventual Democratic nominee.
