OWH Endorses David Nelson…I mean Kramer


On Saturday, the Omaha World Herald announced its US Senate endorsement for….David Kramer! (What Nebraska deserves – OWH – 4/29/06). Their reasoning was sound, and Dave’s obviously a good candidate.

Only problem: he has no chance of winning. As a matter of fact, he is unlikely to finish in the top two for his party’s nomination. Think the OWH missed that? Don’t believe it.

Get a load of this line in their endorsement of Kramer:

Ben Nelson will likely be a very tough candidate for Republicans to beat this fall – for obvious reasons. Nelson has extensive experience and a formidable record. He demonstrates leadership. And he isn’t shallow.

I’m sorry, who was this endorsement for again? Oh yeah, Kramer.
Right…

    I heard the op-ed board voted 5-2 to endorse Kramer, but then he ate the 2 dissenters, so it was unanimous.

    Big Dave has slimmed down significatnly. So while we’ll allow that comment in the spirit of free speech, we knock it in the interest of DK’s new svelte-ness.
