James Bunning: An Imperfect Hero

Alright, two quick things first:

Point One: James Bunning is a 7-time All-Star, Hall of Fame pitcher who retired with a 3.27 ERA (albeit in the National League). He kicks ass.

Point Two: He’s not handled his interactions with the press very well. Perfect example is his confrontation with ABC’s Jonathan Karl we’ve all seen a million times by now. Okay, Karl was asking a very stupid question that Bunning had answered a million times already (see more below) and was just goading him for dramatic effect. But Bunning, someone who’s been in Washington since 1987, should be better at such things.

Okay, now on with the post:

The “Independent” and “Objective” Media Pull for the Stalinization of Health Care

If you’re like me, you held your breath for just a second when you read the following headline from the AP:

9 Dems who voted no on health bill may reconsider

If you’re like some of the sheep on the Left (many of whom often troll this site and offer their talking-points in lieu of actual engagement in conversation), you probably did a little math and figured the Speaker had finally found a way to pull together her needed 216 votes for passage of the Josef Stalin Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care Bill.

Fortunately, I’m like me, and so are you if you also read further into the “news” story to find that it’s actually only three who are wavering as far as the AP has been able to figure:

In interviews with the AP, at least nine of the 39 Democrats — or their spokesmen — either declined to state their positions or said they were undecided about the revised legislation, making them likely targets for intense wooing by Pelosi and Obama.

(my emphasis)

Really? And how’s that looking?

Three of them — Brian Baird of Washington, Bart Gordon of Tennessee and John Tanner of Tennessee — are not seeking re-election this fall.

Okay, so it’s possible these three with nothing to lose (by the way, have you been following Andy’s discussion on this?) may fall on their swords for that lady with all the Botox. But this is a lead story for them? Um, okay.

By the way, you may notice when you read it, this clever little swipe:

Both parties have used the “reconciliation” strategy to pass big bills before, but Republicans call the health care push an unwarranted departure from standard practices.

Yea, those Republicans who are saying that. Like this guy?
