Liberal Democrat New Yorker, Bob Kerrey, President of the New School in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, thinks that over half of Nebraskans — 60% by some polling — are rubes.
They’re super right-wing, reactionary hayseeds who don’t know how awesome Ben Nelson is, and are Karl Rove’s suckers for thinking he should be voted out of office.
When Kerrey’s licked 11,000 envelopes to be sent from New York to Nebraska last week, that was the message inside.
Kerrey thinks New-braskans need Nelson’s “progessive populism”.
The Pope’s progress on what?
Gee how buzz-worthy of Cosmic Bob! The funny thing is, suggest to most Democrats that Nelson is a “Progressive” and they’ll throw up in their mouth. (Then they’ll post on on DailyKos that they threw up in their mouth — but that it was all 100% soy products.)
And seeing that Progressive is just the new politically correct term for Liberal, let us see how that sells in Nebraska anyway.
Populist? Ask how many people think he was doing the “people’s” bidding when he was the deciding vote on ObamaCare — as opposed to becoming a Democrat party tool. (Becoming?)
Yes, we understand that Kerrey feels he needs to re-up his liberal bona-fides after he was ousted from the New School for not being New York City liberal enough.
But please, spare the fine folks of Fly-Over-Country the liberal…er, Progressive…lectures that sell so well in lower Manhattan. Nebraskans are aware that when something stinks, it ain’t a fine cheese.
For those keeping score at home, the Washington Post still has Nelson’s Senate seat as the #1 most likely to switch parties in 2012.
Remember when that was all supposed to change because of how awesome everyone would realize ObamaCare is, and how they wouldn’t believe that Nelson embarrassed Nebraska with the Cornhusker kickback, and how Nelson’s awesome ads would change everyone’s minds?
Yes, yes, we are a long ways off from Election Day. But how is all that working so far?
Overarching foreign and domestic policy interview with Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1) in the Fremont Tribune:
This is another neighborhood, another hemisphere, and others have the primary responsibility here.
On the budget:
The president’s showing no leadership on this and the House of Representatives can’t run the country by itself.
On lowering Ag subsidies?:
Most Nebraska farmers are also good Americans, they realize this has to happen.
Jane Kleeb is lapping up the attention given to her by Governor Dave the other day, and of course incorporating it into a fundraising letter.
Bold (short for “Bold Nebraska” — their liberal movement, which you know is “bold” because it’s in their name – Ed.) works closely with landowners and concerned Nebraskans who want to see safeguards put in place for this risky pipeline…
Uh, yeah they may work with people who want safeguards… but that is not what THEY want.
They want to eliminate the pipeline and the Canadian tar sands oil completely. They do not want a “safe” pipeline…they want NO pipeline.
Don’t you forget it, automobile driver.
