We were looking back on our Separated at Births for the various Senate candidates and realized that we have been short.
We have done numerous Ben Nelsons:
But in all these years we have never done a Don Stenberg. So, here is the best we have (for now).
Don and Marlon Brando’s Jor-El:
Yes, we know, we still don’t have a Pat Flynn. If you have a suggestion, send it in and we will try another soon.
Some rumblings around the Omaha City Council.
Apparently (and none that can probably be confirmed), Franklin Thompson had negotiated with Gary Gernandt, Jean Stothert and Thomas Mulligan for Thompson to be City Council President and Gernandt to be Vice President.
But, Councilman Chris Jerram was not into that. So Jerram organized with Ben Gray, Pete Festersen and…. Tom Mulligan for Mulligan to be Prez and Jerram to be VP.
Needless to say, the others who had a handshake deal with Mulligan are pissed at him for going back on his word. Mulligan’s apparent response: “That’s politics.”
Could be “politics” if Mulligan gets a challenger in his next race.
Correction, Gernandt was elected VP. But Mulligan is the new Prez, under the same story.
The other day the Cook Report listed their known possible Democrat challengers to Representative Lee Terry in the Nebraska’s (new) 2nd Congressional District.
Their suggestions: Howard Warren Buffett and John Ewing. Which is fine, except that’s who we suggested in our last discussion on the topic. So either we are super prescient or….someone has been reading Leavenworth Street.
We have also heard state Senator Gwen Howard’s name thrown around as a possible challenger. So look for her name mentioned in a Daily Kos near you.
More windmill related deaths to God’s endangered creatures.
And yet certain liberal Nebraska groups demand the killing continue.
(Oh, and they want the domination for OPEC to continue.)
And just to finish up on everything Weiner related…
Did you notice that after all the Weiner headlines (“NY GOP Chair Cox demands Weiner straighten up or pull out”), the OWH has jumped in with the “sex sells!” headlines:
Oh, we’re hot baby. We’re hot…
