“I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.”
 “The academic community has in it the biggest concentration of alarmists, cranks and extremists this side of the giggle house.”
“Scientists are people who build the Brooklyn Bridge and then buy it.”
“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”
“Liberals, it has been said, are generous with other peoples' money, except when it comes to questions of national survival when they prefer to be generous with other people's freedom and security.”
“Conservatives should be adamant about the need for the reappearance of Judeo-Christianity in the public square.”
 “Back in the thirties we were told we must collectivize the nation because the people were so poor. Now we are told we must collectivize the nation because the people are so rich.”
“Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.”
“It had all the earmarks of a CIA operation; the bomb killed everybody in the room except the intended target!”
 “I get satisfaction of three kinds. One is creating something, one is being paid for it and one is the feeling that I haven't just been sitting on my ass all afternoon.”
“Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality, the costs become prohibitive.”
“The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry.”
 “One must bear in mind that the expansion of federal activity is a form of eating for politicians.”
“I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word "fair" in connection with income tax policies.”
“The more complicated and powerful the job, the more rudimentary the preparation for it.”
 “You cannot paint the "Mona Lisa" by assigning one dab each to a thousand painters.”
 “Mr. Bush is in the hands of a fortune that will be unremitting on the point of Iraq. If he'd invented the Bill of Rights, it wouldn't get him out of his jam.”

 Jim Bunning

U.S. Senator from Kentucky.

Hall of Fame pitcher.

100+ wins, 1000+ strikeouts and a No-Hitter in each league.

Seemingly somewhat ill tempered, with an oversized pair of cajones.

I like him.

Always have.
