No, SEIU rep Kleeb brought her own protesters to the hospital where the meeting took place.
And then the unthinkable happened: a Johanns staffer gave the protesters a “dirty look”.
Finally, all heck broke loose. Hospital security came over and crushed the protest using billy clubs, tear gas and the latest in urban crowd control.
Or maybe they politely told them to move a few feet from the hospital entrance (those jack-booted thugs!).
But Kleeb is absolutely 150% sure it was Johanns who “called the cops”. Why? Because MJ only gave a passing greeting to the people protesting him, instead of sitting in a circle with them and holding hands.
Oh, and by the way, Kleeb bringing protesters to her own meeting with Mike Johanns has absolutely nothing — zip, nada, nil — to do with the fact that Johanns crushed her husband in the Senate race last year. Nope, nothing to do with that. Uh uh.
Tom White is now officially-unofficially in the race for Congress against Representative Lee Terry.
And GOP Chairman Mark Fahleson had the line of the day in his Twitter:
Tom White plans to run as Tommy Obama?
Sure you see White says he can win big as a pro-life, pro-death penalty Democrat, just like President Obama.
Uh…well… White will be just like Obama and spend all your money hither and yon.
Well, White says he will win because “the Obama people are still here”.
Oh, and Columbus born White will totally bring out North Omaha in droves. That’s clear. Right?
And in Don Walton’s column this morn:
Representative Jeff Fortenberry:
“I love what I do and I’d like to continue to do it. I’m running in 2010.”
