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.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
