Not insulting Old People is hard.

Well it's come to this. The aged sage of Atlanta sports punditry, Furman Bisher, wrote in his Sunday column (AJC premium so no link) that Baseball should scoop Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) out of DC and make him the Commissioner.

Take a look at this article (Salon, click through).

Furman, while utterly adorable when making fun of Black athletes' names and reminiscing on back when Horse Racing was front page shit, lost his mind years ago. He hasn't written a relevant article in decades.

But who knew that there's a demand for more old, senile, batshit-crazy coots running things in sports? What does Furman think Bunning will bring to baseball? Catheter-included cups? Dentures with dip stain?

Yep, on my way to hell.
