“I don’t want to come across as being critical of Mike Johanns leaving , but…”
And isn’t it a little sad? Here’s the guy who stood by Lawrence Phillips. Here’s the guy who stuck to his guns on the immigration question against Dave Heineman. Heck, here’s the guy who went for two against Miami!
And now he’s relegated to taking pot shots on behalf of Bruning? Geez Tom, what’s next? MoveOn.org ads?
Of course, it’s curious how this all came about. Osborne confirmed, “when asked” that he was considered for the Ag Secretary position before Johanns. Hmm, we wonder who prompted that reporter’s question. Wait, here we see later in the article that T.O. won’t “publicly” endorse a primary candidate, but will “personally” stand by Bruning. Love that distinction.
We see that T.O. wants to stress the importance of his “loyalty” to Bruning who stood by him during the Governor’s race (hey, did Jon support Osborne’s immigration position?). We guess that’s what payback’s all about. In any case, we hope we’ve seen the last of T.O. going negative.
(Now Tom, about that two-point conversion play call…)
Stop the presses! Mike Johanns is going to run for Senate? What the? Well, we’re not going to get excited about this until it’s actually confirmed next week.

So, Marianne Means thinks because Ben Nelson is conservative he’ll be Hillary’s VP, huh? Well, if she says that’s the way to go in balancing out the ticket, that’s good enough for us.
But here are a few other conservatives that Mrs. Clinton is more likely to pick than Brunette Bennie:
Hal Daub; Dan Welch; David Kramer; Rush Limbaugh; Monica…
