Jim Bunning trying to hold GOP hostage, make an ass of himself again?

Supposedly he's threatening to resign and let Democrat governor Beshear choose someone to replace him if he doesn't get support from the GOP leadership.  Says, yes, an unnamed source,

"I would get the last laugh. Don't forget Kentucky has a Democrat governor," one of the sources quoted Bunning as saying. "The only logical extension of that comment is, '(Make me mad) … enough and I'll resign, and then you've got 60 Democrats,'" said another source who was present at the event.

He's already issued the stock denial, and who knows if it's true, the media could just be trying to sow more discord.  I'd give it a 50/50.

As for his threats, are we supposed to be intimidated by this? We already have 60 Democrats, sometimes it's Benedict Arlen,
That's right, we've finally gotten our supermajority!

sometimes it's the two twits from Maine, maybe McCain or his poodle Graham, Hatch or some other Vichy Republican who can be bought, so his threat isn't much of one to begin with.  What's one more at this stage?  Of course then you add in the fact that Bunning hasn't done a damn thing to raise funds for himself for the next election, and is almost criminally stupid, I'd say his threat is pretty damned weak.  Go for it Jim, retire.
