No one, but no one, will take Jim Bunning's seat away from him! Not while he's alive!
And should the powers that be in the Republican Party dare try and find another candidate to replace everyone's favorite senile sourpuss...
...should anyone even dare raise the spectre of a challenge to the increasingly erratic, increasingly broke junior Senator...
...well, he'll SUE THE NRSC, that's what he's going to do! The courts will save him!
"If they recruited someone to run in a primary against me, I would sue them because they are not following their bylaws," Bunning said.
You may not have known that the NRSC's bylaws are actually actionable in a court of law, but that's not really the point, now, is it? The point is that somewhere out there, there are LAWS which say that any Republican who gets his hands on a Senate seat gets to keep it forever!
We don't need stupid elections or anything to tell us how to live!
Gee, we thought Norm Coleman was bad enough, refusing to go quietly in the sunset after losing an election. At the rate Bunning is going, it wouldn't be a bit surprising to see him barricaded in his Senate office in November 2010 with a Remington shotgun, threatening to blow the head off of anyone who dares come to take away his rights!
That includes, by the way, the completely untrustworthy and thoroughly snake-like NRSC chair, John Cornyn:
"I don’t believe anything John Cornyn says. I’ve had miscommunications with John Cornyn from, I guess, the first week of this current session of the Senate," Bunning said, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
"He either doesn’t understand English or he doesn’t understand direct: ‘I’m going to run,’ which I said to him in the cloakroom of our chamber."
Well, that's one thing Jim Bunning has in common with America: he doesn't trust the Republican leadership.
And that's one thing Cornyn has in common with America: he apparently doesn't listen to a word Jim Bunning says.
