Most people who do rotten

things have redeeming qualities if you look hard enough. Then there are the really low and vile characters like Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY). After tastelessly predicting Justice Ginsburg’s death in 9 months over the weekend, he’s now followed up with a sneering non-apology apology in which he pins the whole dust-up on her apparently being oversensitive. Truly a rotten person. No wonder his own party is trying to find someone to run against him.

“I apologize if my comments offended Justice Ginsberg,” Bunning said. “That certainly was not my intent. It is great to see her back at the Supreme Court today and I hope she recovers quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.”
