WS JOURNAL: JIM BUNNING'S FINEST HOUR

WS JOURNAL: JIM BUNNING'S FINEST HOUR

Bunning did what anybody fed up with Washington ignoring the budget disasters would do. And the other 99 Senators won't do. Take a stand.

Mr. Bunning did not stand alone. Senator, Public Advocate stands with you and so does all of America.

The Wall Street Journal says "Throughout his Hall of Fame baseball career, Jim Bunning was famous for the brush back pitch: a fastball inside to a batter crowding the plate. Now Mr. Bunning, a Republican from Kentucky who is retiring after this year, is throwing a political brush back in the Senate on behalf of fiscal responsibility.

And all hell has broken loose. Mr. Bunning has dared to put a hold on a $10 billion spending bill to extend jobless insurance and fund transportation projects. Mr. Bunning says he won't yield until the Senate finds a way to pay for the new spending with cuts somewhere else in the $3.5 trillion budget. For this perfectly reasonable stance, Mr. Bunning has become the Beltway and media villain of the hour. We'd call it his finest hour."
