Jim Bunning's Seat Up for Grabs?

Probably not, but his lead is down from 24 to 11 points against an unknown guy with no budget. Why? He's showing signs that he's got some sort of demetia.

They know it, and their protecting him and keeping him in a cocoon is what is harming his campaign:

Saying falsely that he was needed in Washington this week for Senate votes, Bunning tore up his own carefully crafted debate agreement and refused to return to Kentucky on Monday for his one scheduled debate with Mongiardo.

Instead, Bunning insisted on "debating" via satellite from the womblike conditions of the Republican National Committee headquarters studio in Washington.
