Senate senioritis senility

leave a comment »

Senator Jim Bunning (R-Kentucky) has placed a hold on the extension of unemployment benefits to millions of Americans, and in so doing has been wonderful reminder of that fact that some people, even if they’re 79 years old, can still be school yard simpletons. Check out this video of Senator Jim Bunning telling a reporter from ABC to get out of his elevator because it was for senators only.

How come he didn’t even say “nah nah nah boo boo”? I don’t think most Americans would be thrilled with the idea that parts of the Senate function as tree-houses with “NO GIRLS ALLOWED” signs out front.

Bunning may actually be suffering from senioritis- and no, I’m not talking about the fact that it’s an open secret that he has Alzheimer’s- rather the junior senator from Kentucky has decided not to run for reelection in 2010, and that’s probably why he’s being such a dumbass.

Having just been a senior in college myself, I guess I can sympathize with someone who just doesn’t give a crap anymore because their time in an institution is coming to an end. But can’t Bunning find a way to do it that doesn’t make him act like a mentally challenged Scrooge McDuck? Hasn’t he ever heard of just getting drunk in his office all day? Bunning is the senator from Kentucky! His only real responsibility (besides keepin’ track of the gays) is to drink bourbon, fan himself, and declare the benefits of ownin’ land.

So come on Bunning. Stop acting like you own all the elevators in the senate and do what all people are about to be out of a job do- start a blog!
