The Nebraska Republican Party put together a :40 second video about Ben Nelson, and his infamous Cornhusker Kickback. See it here:
It is powerful in its brevity and choice of quotes.
We have always thought that Nelson figured this would blow over a week or two after he sold his vote for ObamaCare.
He was mistaken.
U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu is saying that the Keystone XL Pipeline may get approval because of concerns about energy security, and the preference to get oil from a neighboring ally.
You can see the whole interview here:
We heard about this in a Tweet from Republican Congressman Lee Terry of Nebraska’s 2nd District , who has been, and still is, in favor of the pipeline.
And we see that Arizona now wants to move their Presidential Primary up from February 28th to January 31st.
Of course citizens of Iowa and New Hampshire will bitch and moan about this because for some unknown reason they get to decide who the Presidential nominees are every four years. You know, because that’s the way we’ve always done it.
So, our question here is, What sort of backward-ass banana-Republic are we living in that we don’t have some sort of organized plan for Presidential Primaries??? After the walls came down in Eastern Europe, the Poles and Czechs and Hungarians mush have come over and said, “Uh, THIS is it? This is your ‘plan’? What the hell? We could have gotten this idea from Moscow.”
How about the Governors or Senators or whomever call some sort of convention and come up with a better plan, huh? Split it up so the times rotate every four years. Make it fair. Everyone gets a shot. Oh, and can we do away with the stupid caucuses already?
Of course as soon as someone suggests this, they risk losing the Iowa and New Hampshire vote! Uh, we can’t have that! Run!
Love to hear your comments on why this would be a bad idea. We’re flabbergasted every four years…
And Gooooooooooooo Huskers! Throttle those Chattanoogans!
