A day after Sen. Jim Bunning insisted he would seek a third term, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said he still wasn't sure whether the Kentucky Republican would actually run.
"I don't think he's made a decision on whether to run," said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), head of the NRSC. "We're working with Sen. Bunning now to provide him all the information he needs in order to make that decision."
Bunning's response: "he's either deaf or he didn't listen very well."
This gives me a serious case of the giggles, as I can only imagine that Big John's "imformation" being shared with the sun-ravaged mummy husk that is Jim Bunning can only be gruesome polling memos and other not-so-subtle suggestions that he pack it in rather than go for another term.
McConnell "had a lapse of memory when he was speaking to the press club last week when he said he didn't know what my intentions were," Bunning told Kentucky reporters Tuesday, according to the website Bluegrass Politics. "Whatever Mitch says is whatever he says. He's the leader of the pack and he can say whatever he wants and get away with it."
