Hal Daub, while running for Regent, has categorically ruled out ever running for Mayor of Omaha again. But running for Regent should be a big enough gig for him. The University system needs to keep growing and needs a mind like Daub’s to continue innovating.
Interesting that the first thing Randy Ferlic did was to go negative against Daub while trying to tout his daughter for the gig.
Ferlic said his daughter would be a stronger candidate for his seat than Daub and that Daub may lack innovative ideas on keeping tuition affordable and preserving higher education values.
Ha. Right Randy. That’s Hal Daub. Always just sitting there, mute, without a new idea on his lap. Way to try to keep that job in the family though.
Attention DC Police! Jane Kleeb is still at large! Repeat: Jane Kleeb is still at large! She is reportedly operating an ironic gas-guzzling SUV, with one of those “Coexist” bumper stickers. There is also now an “Obama ’12” sticker over what seemingly used to be a “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism” sticker.
Well, if that APB hasn’t gone out, it should, right? Jane told Joe Jordan that her “plan” was to get herself arrested at the White House gates with everyone else yesterday. Awwww, but apparently, she was just an “organizer”. Ya see, someone had to flip the $600 bills to Chico’s Bail Bonds to get the rest of the gang outta the pokey.
Jane absolutely double-pinky swears that she is going to go back and get herself arrested in a couple weeks. “That’s the plan,” she says.
But you know, sometimes plans can go awry.
And isn’t it good to know that our law enforcement officials in the nations capital are so effectively using their time and efforts? We are beginning to see why the Dems say they need more money to run the government.
The Don Walton of the LJS notes that Ben Nelson’s latest fundraising letter tries to hammer Jon Bruning on… you guessed it! Beetlemania, a/k/a RacoonGate a/k/a “what was that about ‘grapes from a jar’?”
But the Oh So Pious one is suggesting that since JB is such a meany, that while you should contribute to his campaign, you should also give money to some other charity as well.
No word on what charities the 47th Richest Member of the United States Congress is giving to. Was that included in the fundraising letter Mr. Johnson? We are just wondering. Seems like the sort of thing the 47th Richest Member of Congress should have noted when suggesting that other people should give money to a charity, while also paying your salary. (“He wants us to contribute to a charity AND to his campaign?! Now THERE’s a knee to the groin.”)
And speaking of knees to the groin, H-O-M-E-R-S, Homer’s has the very…last locationnnnnn. Closing their 132nd Street locale just leaves them in Omaha’s Old Market. Bummer.
On that note, here’s a fun one: Try explaining to a little kid what it means to “sound like a broken record”…
