He's lost a little off his fastball

Score this one "compassionate conservatism."
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. -- U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning predicted over the weekend that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would likely be dead from pancreatic cancer within nine months.

During a wide-ranging 30-minute speech on Saturday at the Hardin County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner, Bunning said he supports conservative judges "and that's going to be in place very shortly because Ruth Bader Ginsburg … has cancer."

"Bad cancer. The kind that you don't get better from," he told a crowd of about 100 at the old State Theater.

The Kentucky Republican, who is more likely to be remembered for pitching a perfect game than for his legislative career, later apologized, the same day she returned to the bench.

One of the less well-remembered reasons that an Obama victory was important.
