For doing the right thing, Jim Bunning (R-KY) has been excoriated by Democrats and the press, some even calling for his removal from the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
How stupid can you get? Someone actually takes a stand against stupidity, and they have to be banned from honors earned in a previous career??? You have to be fucking kidding me.
In case you didn't know, Bunning pitched his way into the hearts of Philadelphians and baseball fans on Fathers Day, 1964, when he pitched a perfect game at Shea Stadium against the New York Mets. When the Beatles put in their stellar performance in that great ballpark, Bunning said, "Been there, done that." The Phillies retired his jersey number 14 in his honor, despite the great Pete Rose also wearing it in the 70s and 80s.
I have news for the Left. Bunning ain't the guy you have to worry about. He really only opposes you about 65% of the time, which is nowhere near enough, and he's not even consistent at that. Jim Bunning will nonetheless remain one of the greatest pitchers ever to play professional baseball, and his name will always grace the walls of Cooperstown's museum. The number 14 will forever hang in the outfield at Citizens Bank Park and all of its descendants, whether you like it or not.
Here at the RWRepublic, we don't discriminate. If someone does the right thing, they get praise. If they screw up, they get a shit sandwich. You won't excoriate Jim Bunning, or anyone else for that matter, for doing right thing with our blessing. You should try it (doing the right thing) sometime. It's liberating, to be sure. To Mr. Bunning I say (Phillies cap proudly seated upon my crown), keep it up, and check what you've done against what you should do. Make changes where appropriate. Screw Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and Huffington. The more you are like them, the more you are the enemy.
Hey, how about we all wear Phillies caps one day this week to support Mr. Bunning?
