Closing Lee Terry ad, a surprise endorsement (sort of)…
See it here:
We like the spot with Governor Dave. And the positive testimonials are good.
What we’re not crazy about is describing Jim Esch as “just another politician”.
That’s being too complimentary. In order to be a politician, he’d have to have held a job as such. When you haven’t held a job, then run for office you’re a…wanna be.
Calling him a politician gives a bad name to politicians…
Et Tu, Lou Ann?
The Esch for Congress camp introduced their October/November surprise by getting the “endorsement” of one Lou Ann Linehan.
Linehan used to be Chief of Staff for Senator Chuck Hagel. She even ran the GOP’s statewide election efforts back in 2006. Of late she has been in Iraq, working in the Green Zone as a “computer specialist” for the State Department. To our knowledge she is not a Nebraska voter.
Does she know Jim Esch? Has she met Jim Esch? We don’t know.
But we do know that her DAUGHTER works for the Jim Esch campaign.
So the Linehan endorsement, as it were, is essentially a Full Employment Act push for the Linehan family.
But you know, nice job of Linehan abusing her old job title so her kid can try to swing a job in Congress. Interesting way to close out her career in Republican politics.
In the end we believe the impact of this endorsement will be right up there with Chuck Hagel’s wife’s push for Obama.
And Scott Kleeb finished out his campaign with one final banality.
In this one he stands in front of Chimney Rock. See it here:
Wow, we’re speechless. What a campaign.
