Finally, some sanity from DC. If the GOP wants to re-invent itself after the Bush Debacle (while returning to their fiscal-responsibility roots), they need to make the biggest stink possible while fighting the Democrats' housing gambler bailout bills.
Jim Bunning, you sir, along with Ron Paul, can stay (for now).

Bunning Campaigns Against ‘Bailouts’ in Housing Bill
The Senate Banking Committee plans to vote on legislation Thursday that would create a new regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and allow the Federal Housing Administration to insure up to $300 billion in refinanced mortgages. Lawmakers plan to file up to 70 amendments during the committee vote, with 31 of those coming from Sen. Jim Bunning (R., Ken.).
According to a summary of all the amendments, Sen. Bunning wants:
“to stop the bailout of the rich”
“to prevent the bailout of illegal aliens”
“to prevent the bailout of homeowners who used their homes as a credit card”
“to stop the bailout of sex offenders”
“to stop the bailout of drug offenders”
Another of Sen. Bunning’s amendments would change the name of the bill from “The Federal Housing Finance Regulatory Reform Act of 2008” to the “Bailout of Irresponsible Lenders and Borrowers Act of 2008."
