Rachel Maddow Questions Bunning's 'Mental Fitness', Ignores Kooky Democrats
MSNBC Host Questions Republican's Sanity, Omits Nutty Dems
For "progressive" Democrats who can't imagine anything standing between them and endless spending opportunities, Senator Jim Bunning's lone crusade to turn the lights out on their wild party can only mean insanity on the Kentucky Republican's part.
But when MSNBC's Rachel Maddow questions Bunning's "mental fitness", shouldn't she also consider the stability of Senator "Bow Wow" Al Franken (D-MN), who has been known to bark like a dog in public, or Fortney "Pete" Stark (D-East Bay), who in the below clip (second video) discusses public urination on a constituent's leg and calls opponents whores, fruitcakes and a disgrace to their race?
MADDOW (00:56 in segment on Maddow MSNBC site titled "Paygo principle missing in Bunning's record"): It is not possible to report accurately on what's been a very bizarre term of events in the Senate without also explaining that Sen. Bunning has a history of bizarre behavior, behavior that's not just politically strong-willed, that's not just him having extreme opinions on issues, but rather we mean literally strange behavior.
To the point where even his hometown newspaper has at times questioned his mental fitness, saying 'Is his increasing belligerence an indication of something worse? Has [he] drifted into territory that indicates a serious health concern?'
Sure, intellectual honesty is a bit much to ask of Maddow, but why does she leave herself so easily vulnerable to such criticism?
