Jim Bunning was a baseball star with the Tigers before he was a senator, but no he was thrown off the schedule at a suburban Detroit sports-card show after he refused to bail out auto workers.

Bunning was to appear Sunday at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor. Fans would have paid $35 for Bunning to sign a baseball and $55 to sign a bat.




Owner Jim Koester says he can’t support someone who voted against Michigan’s economic well-being.

Think Progress looks at the 20 senators who voted yes to bailing out Wall Street, and no to Main Street, and the 10 who were absent for the vote.  Among Democrats, John Kerry was at a UN conference on climate change in Poland, and Joe Biden was busy with transition duties.
