More Wisdom from Jim Bunning

When sportswriters need a cranky old opinion from a cranky old baseball player -- and if Bob Feller isn't available -- they call Jim Bunning:

Jim Bunning, the Hall of Fame pitcher-turned-politician, wasn't swayed by the 42-page analysis of Roger Clemens' career, noting it was factually incorrect and did little to show that Clemens' longevity wasn't a result of performance-enhancing drugs.

"It's sad that a man of Roger Clemens' reputation and qualifications would have this analysis published," said Bunning, a Republican senator from Kentucky. "Clemens should have the opportunity to prove his innocence, but he's going about it in a very strange way."
Remember folks, that thar man reversing this nation's traditional burden of proof is a United States Senator.

I'm so embarrassed that he represents my home state. I honestly think that he might have some sort of psychological disorder.
