You say you can “select it” in Preferences → Bundles, but is the 
checkbox checked?

Did you try to uncheck and recheck the checkbox?

If this did not help, try delete this file and relaunch TextMate:

However, this would be user customizations, and if you have none, should 
be empty.

And just for the records, here are all the things to delete to get back

Item 4 and 5 on that list though should not affect bundles.
