Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY), who has become a one-man filibuster of a bill to extend unemployment benefits, apparently placed a hold on all presidential nominees last week.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office confirms to TPMDC that Bunning has placed the holds.
"It turns out that not only has he been blocking the unemployment insurance bill, he has also been blocking the confirmation of nominees since last week as well," said Reid spokesman Jim Manley.
Someone needs to tell Grandpa Cranky his team didn't win. It's called "being in second place and accepting like a man."
I hope his end is horrible.
