Bunning wins, but we still lose

Lonely Senator Jim Bunning from Kentucky stood against the tide for days and found little support from his own fellow Republicans. Both parties were united in spending deficit money without a recorded vote.

Remember Bunning wasn't blocking anything from passing, he simply refused to give his unanimous consent. Finally the party leaders caved and held a recorded vote, which they could have done in the first place. It's like shining a light on the cockroaches.

The leftwing media was predictable, blaming Bunning for filibustering or stopping it, which was not even possible. Then again, what can we expect from the dumbest people on Earth?

So finally the recorded vote was held. 18 spineless Republicans, who had apparently given their unanimous consent, crossed the isle and voted with Bunning. 18! Republicans who would have added $10 billion to the national debt to add that 99th week of unemployment benefits (only in specified states, mind you) in secret but not in public.

Hey Rush, tell me again how the Republican Party isn't the problem?


  1. RINOs are the problem....I'm beginning to think the only folks with a clue are Michael Savage and Beck....

    Even if we toss out the Democrats come November, what do we gain, with the limp wristed, panty waist Neo Cons and Moderates in office?

  2. Senator Bunning helped to illustrate what the GOP really is. All of the rest of the Republican Senators were willing to add another $10 Billion onto the debt without even so much as a vote. But when its a recorded vote, 18 of them join him, spineless even in their weenieness. I think it might be too late. I think we are headed for a Great Fall. I don't know how long it will take but its going to be worse than the Great Depression.

  3. Since human vice and virtue cannot be commanded or demanded, the best we can do is create structures in government to mitigate the worst, and the best of them. The ReddSkye Manifesto, with its 19 Articles of Re-confederation, suggests an approach. Review the manifesto ( and voice your opinion. You will be glad you did and the government will be the better for it.
