Did we strike a nerve out there, Boldies?
We put up a little post about Jane posing as a farm-girl at the Keystone XL State Department hearings, and the entire liberal political establishment in Nebraska rattled!
You always know you’ve hit something when libs start yelping, “There’s nothing to see there! Nothing! You hear us? Nothing!!! Don’t you have something better to talk about??? There are people starving in the world! ”
So we just sit back and chuckle.
And yes, we read Jane’s Twitters and Facebook posts about her father-in-law’s jacket, and she didn’t know the rules and blah blah blah — which we of course predicted prior.
Just one little correction: Jane says on Facebook, “And when an older woman came up to me and explained she would prefer I not wear his coat I respectfully took it off.”
Well, we ALSO know for a fact that former FFA members approached her and asked her to take it off.
And she refused. Apparently until an old lady joined the chorus.
Never quite get the full story with Jane, do you?
And on that Twitter topic, Jane is Tweetering out to all her followers, “do NOT talk to people w/out press credentials“.
Why not Jane?
Because they will end up in a video like…THIS?
Geez Jane. They’re just speaking from the heart. What’s the problem?
(But for the life of us, we cannot figure out why Emperor Palpatine is protesting the pipeline…
But ah, loyal readers, politics in Nebraska isn’t all jackets and boots ya know.
Sometimes we have to discuss campaigns too. And the Washington Post did a pretty lengthy analysis of the GOP Primary for the U.S. Senate race, as it stands.
The gist of the article is that Jon Bruning is manuevering some bumps in the road, and is being challenged by Don Stenberg and Deb Fischer. All pretty much stuff that you know well, if you follow pols here much at all.
But a few interesting notes:
Just recently, he parted ways with his old media consultant, Bob Wickers, for a new one, Larry McCarthy. He has also brought on Brooks Kochvar, who managed now-Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) 2010 campaign, as general consultant.
We knew that, but that’s much more detail.
Bruning’s peeps, “acknowledge that it hasn’t been smooth sailing and say the candidate is leaning more on the advice of his new campaign apparatus.”
Not exactly something you want to say out loud…
Fischer supporter and former state party chairman David Kramer…
Maybe we knew that he was on her team. But there it is, officially, in black and white. (Or whatever color your Kindle now uses…)
“There’s the Jon Bruning vote and the non-Jon Bruning vote,” said the source close to Bruning’s campaign.
Well, OK, we knew that last one too.
And then the point that everyone keeps making, of Deb Fischer:
Much will depend on what kind of fundraising numbers she produces in the third quarter, which ends this week.
It is an exciting time politicos! People wait years for this kind of stuff. And it is upon us.
