A quick Separated at Birth for ye:
1st Congressional District Democrat candidate Ivy Harper and SNL star Kristen Wiig.
The other day Congressman Lee Terry, State state Senator Tom White and others joined at a candidate forum to talk about issues and such and such.
You can see a news report on it here (and feel free to debate the various candidates’ positions).
But our main point here is, of course, just how in the heck Dewey went from Malcolm in the Middle to reporting for KPTM!
Some interesting battles coming Primary Day May 11th.
Note that there are FOUR Democrats running for the nomination in the 1st Congressional District. That’s a serious battle to see who is going to get wiped out by Jeff Fortenberry. It’s either Jessica, Stanley, Ivy or Sherman. Our money’s on Ivy.
Then there’s perpetual candidate Steven Laird added to the mix in the 2nd District. Like it or not, that’s going to hurt the MattSak float wagon, as voters look to the name they’ve heard and seen before when they look for an alt-candidate.
Then after you see the few Dems that are competing in the races for Treasurer and Secretary of State, did you note that there is no competition against Jon Bruning for AG or Mike Foley for Auditor? Arguably the second and third most high profile positions in the state government these days, and once again the Dems took a “pass”.
Not that they would have likely had a prayer, but just something to note in any case.
And just to note, that once again, Senator Ben Nelson is a fan of Reconciliation for the Health Care re-from bill.
Just remember the Triple Lindy Nelson has been pulling on this issue for over a year now.
You can read the news that the President once hated this maneuver as well.
But the end result is whenever Nelson — and we’re going to focus on him here — promises anything, states anything, declares anything, just assume he may say the exact opposite in a couple of days.
And then decide if you’re into that.
