I liked Jim Bunning More When He Was A Pitcher

As a US Senator, the Baseball Hall of Famer is a joke, and now, with flimsy justification, is filibustering and blocking an extension of jobless benefits. points out the audacious hypocrisy involved, and The New York Times notes that Bunning's antics allow Democrats at an advantageous moment to cast Republicans as negative and filibuster-happy.

The blocking action was because the Senate wasn't following their own "Pay As You Go" rules. Bunning was holding the measure for this reason. It's very telling how pay as you go is only important to liberals when the Republicans are in power.
