Senator Bunning, Spellcheck Please!

RealClearPolitics.com provides this update to the story below regarding Senator Bunning's inconsiderate remark concerning Justice Ginsburg's cancer diagnosis:

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) apologized today for a remark he made over the weekend regarding Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health.

. . . .

"I apologize if my comments offended Justice Ginsberg," Bunning stated today in a press release, which misspelled her name. "That certainly was not my intent. It is great to see her back at the Supreme Court today and I hope she recovers quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family."

Senator Bunning is breaking records with his wild pitches. Not since Governor Fletcher's plane buzzed the Capitol at President Reagan's funeral has a Kentucky politician made such an embarrassing impression in Washington, D.C.
