Senators Behaving Badly

Huzzah! -- two on the same day!

Behind door #1: Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning:

WASHINGTON — Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning cursed at reporters during a telephone press call and refused to release the results of an internal political poll on Tuesday.

The poll results are "none of your g--d--- business," Bunning told reporters.

When a reporter asked if Bunning's decision to keep the poll numbers private infers that he isn't happy with the results, he responded: "You are going to infer any damn thing you choose, so why should I try to influence it."

And behind door #2: Louisiana Sen. David Vitter:

The Louisiana senator arrived at his gate to find it already closed and then "opened the door, setting off a security alarm and prompting an airline worker to warn him that entering the gate was forbidden." Vitter "gave the airline worker an earful, employing the timeworn 'do-you-know-who-I-am' tirade that apparently grew quite heated."

However, when the worker left to find a security guard, Vitter "turned tail and simply fled the scene."

Keep up the awesome work, fellas!

Yes.. This is much worse than Charlie Rangel telling a reporter that it's none of his GD business why he cheats on his taxes.... Much worse.
