Get Off My TeeVee: Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) Edition

What a disgrace.  Jim Bunning (R-KY) refuses to allow the Senate to vote on a measure to extend benefits that include unemployment, COBRA, and other desperately needed funds.

He is blocking this money from going to the families who need it desperately it.  This is not brave, this is disgusting.

Politico is reporting that when another senator begged him to remove his objection, he said, "tough sh*t."

In this back and forth debate which went on until nearly midnight, Senator Bunning also complained about missing a basketball game.

Republicans sure are the party of family values.  Video after the jump:
