Could Bunning Get a Job as a WalMart Greeter?

Here's Jim Bunning making some classy comments about Ruth Bader Ginsberg's cancer at a dinner in Elizabethtown:

U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning predicted over the weekend that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would likely be dead from pancreatic cancer within nine months.

During a wide-ranging 30-minute speech on Saturday at the Hardin County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner, Bunning said he supports conservative judges "and that's going to be in place very shortly because Ruth Bader Ginsburg ... has cancer."

"Bad cancer. The kind that you don't get better from," he told a crowd of about 100 at the old State Theater.

"Even though she was operated on, usually, nine months is the longest that anybody
would live after (being diagnosed) with pancreatic cancer," he said.

In the "comments" section on the Louisville Courier-Journal story, kywildcatfan71 raised the question about whether Bunning would have the personal skills to land a job as a Walmart greeter if he wasn't in the Senate.

That's a very good question.
