After spending billions of dollars on phony wars that will never make us the slightest bit "safer," after saving the rich elite billions in tax dollars, Jim Bunning finally said enough.
Those Americans, who are poor and hurting, who are facing one of the worst economic periods since the Great Depression, must be the ones who feel the pain. Sorry, no more money to go around. Get a job. Oh, that's right. There are no jobs.
Where was Bunning when it came to spending $106 billion for the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars? Where was Bunning when it came to the brutal Bush tax cuts? Wait a minute, says here Bunning voted for both of those.
I call that hypocrisy.
And then this guy has the audacity to actually suggest a revolution. Sure, it was the letter writer who said "a revolution was long overdue," but did you notice how Bunning didn't disagree when he read the letter because "everyone had to hear it"? Here's a U.S. senator actually suggesting that an American revolution is long overdue -- and it's somehow acceptable.
What exactly is Bunning suggesting a revolution from? May I suggest that it would be from the kind of politics that he plays so well? A revolution from a government that looks after its corporate elite instead of the hard-working men and women who make this country run?
I would be ashamed to say I was from Kentucky today.
