Boyle has offered up a few excuses for why he “wants” to run. “I think I could do something to straighten out the mess,” he threw out to the OWH.
Well, he’s better than nothing, right Dems? Could be an outside chance (waaaay outside) to win, right?
And you can guarantee that Heineman won’t take it easy. The former Airborne Ranger will prepare like he’s running against Bob Kerrey and Ben Nelson combined (who will both jollily support Boyle).
Heck, he’ll eat it up. Did you see the pic of him last summer after his abortion-truck dust up?
Basically, he got a ticket for blocking an anti-abortion truck with graphic images, with his car. So the local Dems turned his $54 fine into a fund-raising party — with Boyle posing for mugshots on the invite, but a’la Nick Nolte (wet hair, Hawaiian shirt…).
He’ll get to be the center of attention. He’ll get to pump out the Dem talking points and glad-hand and slap backs. And all the Dems will super-appreciate him for it. It’ll be the final “victory” lap of his career (without the victory, of course).
Here’s the only thing we’d caution: Have you seen the guy lately? Not exactly the picture of health. We’d challenge him to walk across the state, but are a little afraid of the results.
He has given himself until February to wait for someone else to get in…er…to make up his mind.
See ya on the trail, Mike.
