[doubleplusundead] Looks like the Democrats are ahead in implanting spines in the GOP leadership race.

Normally, I would pass a story like this off as another attempt by the MSM to build a meme for defeating a Republican. Not this time, though. It's true. Jim Bunning needs to announce his retirement after this term:
While Bunning has shown no sign that he’s ready to retire, there’s little evidence he’s prepared for the tough, expensive campaign that looms ahead.Bunning barely squeaked through in his 2004 re-election campaign against then state senator (and current lieutenant governor) Daniel Mongiardo. Remember? That was the election where Bunning stated that Mongiardo looking like one of Saddam Hussein's sons, among other things. Embarrassing.
Bunning will need to raise millions to mount a serious defense of his seat, but he is already well behind pace with only $175,000 in his campaign account through September, the latest a report was available. Worse, he isn’t expected to hold his first fundraiser until April.
His retirement would clear the way for some new blood in the Republican political establishment in Kentucky:
Still, there are signs that Bunning could face a serious primary challenge from Kentucky’s 36-year-old secretary of state, Trey Grayson.Trey Grayson won statewide election as a Republican in 2007 at the same time GOP Gov. Ernie Fletcher lost re-election by 20 points. GOP Rep. Geoff Davis from Kentucky's 4th District (where I grew up) is also a potential challenger, but since I didn't get hired in his DC office after two interviews, I'm going to be spiteful and support Grayson instead.
Grayson has already heard from leading GOP fundraisers and supporters urging him to run, said spokesman Les Fugate, adding that Grayson wouldn’t rule out a primary challenge against Bunning.
“I don’t think he will ever close the door on any opportunity, and he’s not considering it right now, but you never say never,” said Fugate.
If Bunning decides he's in this for himself, he's likely to face a strong, strong challenge from Attorney General Jack Conway. And Conway will win.

The Senator has a fevuh, and the only prescription is more Hopenchangetm:
“It’s really not a time to be obstructionist,” Ensign, chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, said on Fox News. “It’s a time where we as a party need to try to work with especially President Obama and try to solve some of the country’s problems.”
The Republican senator, who praised Obama for having some “really good ideas” coming into office, said given the myriad of challenges facing the nation, it is time to “put the country before our party.”
The sad part is that they probably will be more helpful to President Obama than the Democrats in the Senate. With few exceptions, Republican Senators are squishes who either lack or have severely misplaced principles. Democrats, however, will (maybe) spend a good deal of time criticizing Dear Leader whenever he veers to the right of Lenin. Depressing.
Oh, and just to remind everyone, Sen. Ensign was the head of the NRSC the last election cycle. I wonder why we lost so many seats?
I'll give you a hint: her name rhymes with "Rathleen Rarker."
Sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, extremities numb despite layers of wool, and seeing so many gathered to witness this thing they called "change" was, dare I say it, awesome. That most-annoying hipster term for anything remotely acceptable is suddenly useful for its intended purpose.
For awe is the truest word to describe what transpired and what was inspired.
there any way that we can excommunicate this gigantic fucking tool from
the ranks of the conservative movement? Because I'm getting
really sick of her bullshit. And I'm pretty sure I can get an
"amen" from most of you.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go punch a wall.
