How many points is Ginsburg, anyway?

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) indicated that he thinks Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be dead within a year.

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.

Now he's apologized.

I know, cancer's not anything to joke about. I've had friends die from it. I've had family members die from it. Heck, I was even misdiagnosed with it one time.

Cancer is scary stuff.

But it's not always fatal.

Still, I help but wonder if Ginsburg will be on sombody's Ghoul Pool list next year.
