It’s a media Friday politicos! Here is some video and audio to whet your whistle for the weekend.
The commenters continue to argue about the Baron Hill- Lee Terry bill to improve fuel efficiency standards.
We’ve posted Rep. John Dingell’s comments about the bill, and about Hill and Terry on the floor of the House. Some glowing words from the Democrat Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee…
On a side note, Dingell’s Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee has decided that Jim Esch’s campaign is not worth focusing on…
Next, we’ve dropped in Joe Jordan’s interview with David Sokol after the finale of the Fahey Flipout.
Note that Sokol is gracious, even-tempered and answers Jordan’s questions. Unlike Mayor No-Comment. And the rest of the Nebraska Dems…
Finally, we’ll link to the interview of Senator Ben Nelson (a-member him?) on Todd n Tyler.
The aging hipsters glowingly chat with E. Ben about Tim Russert, and the Senator recalls (about 4:15 into the interview) Russert writing Omaha and a little Nebraska map on his whiteboard.
Except Russert never did that. He did mention Omaha recently, but the only place you’d see the map would be here on Leavenworth Street.
You see, sometimes we edit photos to make a point.
Also, for clarification, Tom Osborne didn’t really wear a “Vote for Pedro” t-shirt…
…and your hair isn’t really a loaf of bread.
And former Kennedy speechwriter Ted Sorenson was in Lincoln raising money for Scott Kleeb. While in town, Sorenson took a few partisan shots at the President.
It seems that Sorenson doesn’t care for a President who talks funny, blundered an invasion, got American into an unwinnable war and made us less safe vis-a-vis our enemies.
Oh, wait. No, he LIKES those things in a President.
See: Boston-accent, Bay of Pigs, Vietnam and losing missiles in Turkey against the Soviets.
But gee could Kennedy spin a phrase. Golly.
