A little late Friday morning. (It would be so much easier to get posts out if people bought their Amazon stuff via Leavenworth St’s Amazon links. At no extra charge to you!)
So first, a special Separated at Birth for ya!
Democrat state Senator Amanda McGill’s Facebook profile picture and Liza Minnelli from Cabaret!
Congressman Lee Terry is out with his FEC numbers.
Terry has raised $555,326 for the cycle. He raised $197,227 for the quarter and has $320,332 cash on hand.
These numbers are higher than Terry’s contributions at the same time for the last (2010) elections — which he won by 21%.
Also significant for Terry as fundraising has been tough across the country AND there are many other campaigns with their hands out this election season.
We thought we were out and PPP pulled us back in.
One last lump of polling info from PPP.
PPP notes that Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has the third highest approval rating of any governor in the country, at 57% (according to their polls). They do note that Heineman dropped 10% from their stratospheric January numbers for him.
Senator Mike Johanns is also at a very high 52% — but it down from 59%. They did a statewide breakdown of the House members and found the statewide “favorable/unfavorable” numbers (as opposed to “job approval” — which we’d like to get to the bottom of…) as follows:
Jeff Fortenberry: 33/26
Lee Terry: 32/33
Adrian Smith: 30/26
Their breakdowns by district, for favorable/unfavorable (again, as opposed to “job approval”) are…
And then for some reason they polled on Chuck Hagel and Bob Kerrey (44/30 and 39/34 respectively). No word on whether they polled on Roman Hruska or Nobby Tiemann.
We have prepared our signs for the Occupy Omaha march (which won’t actually occupy anything, or march by any corporate headquarters like, say, Gorats). We may first stop by the Occupy Lincoln march (also not occupying anything). Of course the Lincolnites on any other football Saturday would just be confused with Husker tailgaters (except Husker fans bring their own food).
No one has said just what it is we are protesting. So we were just going to stick with our “Bring back Twin Peaks!” theme. But then we really liked that show “Profit” before it petered out. But a “Bring back Profit!” sign would probably confuse our fellow marchers.
So we saw this guy at “Occupy Wall Street”, and think he is REALLY onto something. He wants free tuition to college because…well, see why:
Now THAT kid knows what he wants!
Have a beautiful weekend and Go Bye Week!!!
