Jim Bunning Can't Find the Strike Zone
Yes, it's a stupid joke, but the man who used to be a major league pitcher, and is currently a US Senator from Kentucky, Jim Bunning, seems to be totally clueless. From the Louisville, KY, Courier-Journal:
U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning said yesterday that he was unaware of reports that a unit of Army Reserve soldiers in Iraq had refused an order to deliver fuel for reasons including that their trucks were lightly armored.A US Senator that hasn't read a newspaper or watched the national news in the past six weeks! This man is obviously not fit for office. Really, that's a disgrace.
"I don't know anything about that," Bunning said during a news conference after a speech he gave to the Rotary Club of Louisville....
When reporters told him that the unit's refusal was a national news story and involved a soldier from Louisville, Bunning said, "Let me explain something: I don't watch the national news, and I don't read the paper. I haven't done that for the last six weeks. I watch Fox News to get my information."
