First, a little Separated at Birth proposed by…Senator Chuck Hagel!
Chuck Hagel and Mac Davis.
(Here is Mac’s Wikipedia link for you youngsters who never saw him perform at Ak-Sar-Ben.)
Now the good Senator didn’t suggest it directly to Leavenworth Street. It was on the very interesting audio piece the Lincoln Journal Star put together of Hagel narrating a slide show of photos through his life. Throughout Hagel shows off the dry wit that many know and appreciate about him
For the shot above:
“That’s a picture of Mac Davis. A great entertainer.”
With Senator Pat Robert of Kansas:
“They don’t laugh much in Kansas…try to steal our water most of the time…”
A shot of him looking at his watch, carrying a suitcase:
“My staff’s no good…lazy. It’s not easy being a Senator…I have to do it all.”
A celebratory campaign photo:
“Just gotten word that…I’m not under indictment or out of detox.”
And with Tom Osborne, showing a shot of a young football playing Hagel:
“This is someone most Nebraskans would not recognize — Tom Osborne. Coach Osborne acknowledged that he and Bob Devaney missed one of the best recruits they could have probably ever had. There was one conclusion that they all came to: Hagel was not very big…but he sure was slow.”
(Now if he had only come up with something witty for the pic of his non-announcement, announcement…)
He’ll be here all week ladies and gentlemen! Try the roast beef. Be sure to tip your waitress.
Scott Kleeb and Tony Raimondo have agreed to debate some time before the May 13th Democrat primary. Well, at least Raimondo has agreed.
It would seem that the crucial part about having a debate is actually agreeing on the date you’re going to debate, right? That’s sort of the clincher. So while Raimondo has agreed to show up on April 12th, the day proposed by the Lancaster County Democrats, Kleeb just can’t commit yet.
We’re guessing he’s very busy trying to decide which campaign logo to use on his website. You know, the same website that doesn’t list a single issue or position of his…
And speaking of campaign websites, we have this to report on Jim Esch’s $40K site: “Coming Soon” (day 30 and counting…)
