Fort and Donny Osmond:
Alter talks about how the group ChangeCongress.org is claiming victory in their web campaign to force U.S. Senator Ben Nelson to change his stance on Obama’s health care plan.
It went like this: Not long after ChangeCongress started their ads, Nelson said that, like pretty much every issue, he is on the fence and tries to play both sides unless forced into a position by a blogger.
OK, maybe he didn’t say that (but is it far off?).
And the filibuster part is really the only thing anyone cares about in the Senate where the Dems hold a solid majority.
Is the Benator just feeding the Free Health Care crowd a bone? Will he stand up for what he believes in? Will he finally recognize Leavenworth Street when he makes his decision?
We will have to wait and see…
In any case, the lead at that group in Nebraska is of course Mrs. Jane Fleming Kleeb — of the Scott Kleebs.
Could Ms. Hannah’s complaints about cowboys and cowgirls and fake Nebraskans be directed at the Kleeb Clan (and is there trouble in paradise?).
Gee whiz, don’t say we didn’t warn ya…
The comment had nothing to do with Scott Kleeb, and any assumptions made by those not within my closest circle of friends are just that: Assumptions without any basis in fact.
Finally, we hate to keep bringing this up, but we’ll just point you to the latest report by KMTV’s Joe Jordan (in case you missed it).
Jordan points out that the Omaha World Herald isn’t done with the investigation of Mayor Jim Suttle’s political confidant, Matthew Samp (aka “Matt Moore”).
It seems that the OWH is delving deeper into the “what did Suttle know and when did he know it” aspect of the investigation into Samp, and are seeking to open search warrants and other records.
Jordan notes that Douglas County District Court Judge Pete Battallion will decide (this week maybe) whether the info will be opened.
We’ll give these guys a shout-out just for the pure creativity factor:
