You think if say, Jane and the Boldies, had a protest outside a Mike Johanns speech, The Don would have mentioned it in his article? We are pretty sure of the answer to that.
In any case, the AFPers were complaining about Nelson’s failure to hold any publicized Town Hall meetings during the August recess — unlike the rest of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation who have all had several.
We suggest playing the “Chicken Dance” song for him at the next gathering.
And Nelson continues to tell those that will listen that there is lots of “misinformation” about ObamaCare, and that people shouldn’t believe what they hear about it.
Sounds remarkably similar to what the President told a farmer about new Ag regulations, while on his bus trip across the voting public. That was just before a reporter spent a day and half trying to find out about the regs, and then never got any of the answers.
Gee, could there be unknowns and unexpecteds in ObamaCare? Could such a thing be possible? Well, maybe you should just trust the President and the Senator. They know best.
And Yahoo! News reports that MOST Members of Congress are skipping TownHall meetings — like Senator Nelson — this break. They note that 67% of Democrats and 50% of GOPers in the House are skipping out. But that does NOT include Lee Terry, Adrian Smith or Jeff Fortenberry.
And the story includes Terry at a TownHall (from a KETV report). Interesting though, at Terry’s meeting he gets a loud tongue-lashing from some gray-haired dude about Terry NOT raising taxes.
Wait, that can’t be a Tea Partier then, right? We have heard that Tea Partiers hate raising taxes. But we have also heard that it is only loud Tea Partiers that raise their voices and yell at such meetings. And this guy (at :37 of the report) certainly does not use his “inside voice”.
Oh, we are so confused.
But just in case you were worried that Terry’s meeting wouldn’t be saved for posterity, we see that a Tracker is there to video the whole thing. And it seems that said blonde-haired Tracker just got back from Zimbabwe, by his choice of blouse.
We are told that it is an outside group that is paying for this videography. Hmm, just the type of out of state group that Senator Nelson says is putting undue influence on Nebraskans. We are sure that “on the one hand” such groups are bad but “on the other hand” they’re good.
And speaking of constituent meetings, we see that during yesterday’s East Coast Earthquake, Jane and the Boldies were scurrying from the Senate Office Buildings, after meeting, apparently, with the Nebraska Senators’ staff. Jane had complained that the House members didn’t set up meetings to discuss hating oil.
But then, Terry, Smith and Fortenberry are all in…Nebraska. At public TownHall meetings.
To quote the great Homer J., “I’m livin’ in a cuckoo clock!”
And we see that Janie was quoted in Politico as follows:
“This is not just some liberal tree-hugging effort. This is regular folks telling Obama that we’re serious.”
Whew! Glad we finally got Jane to admit that her’s is a liberal tree-hugging effort.
But next time Jane, please put a “President” in front of that “Obama”. Oh, and also let us know how you “regular folks” financed your trip, accommodations and bail for your multi-week trip. ‘Cause all “regular folks” have their own zillionaire sugar-daddy, yeah?
And thanks to all of you Leavenworth Street sugar…cousins (?) who continue to buy your Amazon.com loot via L.St.’s Amazon link. You are helping us to keep the lights on and treating yourself to a brown box at your doorstep all in one click! (And it is zero extra cost to you!) Mucho appreciado.
