Dang.  It’s a festival of wretched.

U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) declares that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will likely be dead from pancreatic cancer within 9 months.

Is there an Asshole Academy you go to where you learn to come up with this stuff?

During an half hour speech over the weekend at a dinner in Hardin County, Kentucky, Bunning pronounced his doom and gloom in the ever so sensitive context of his support of conservative judges:

And that’s going to be in place very shortly because Ruth Bader Ginsburg … has cancer…Bad cancer.   The kind that you don’t get better from… Even though she was operated on, usually, nine months is the longest that anybody would live after (a diagnosis) with pancreatic cancer.”

Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg was diagnosed with Stage 1 cancer in February 2009.   This is the best case scenario with pancreatic tumor. Patients have between a 21 and 37 percent chance of surviving for more than five years.

(I ❤ U, Justice Ginsburg!)

  1. I can’t help wondering how much influence he thinks he would have over any appointment that President Obama might have to make? Not a whole lot, I don’t think.

  2. Shaking head in disbelief and dismay, wondering aloud how many times in less than a week the Republicans should have heeded my grandmother’s advice, “if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all”.
