This one has been around for a while, but we hadn’t gotten around to putting up Ben Nelson’s latest campaign ad. See it here:
Eleven — count them ELEVEN — people sing the praises of Ben Nelson in this spot.
We can all agree that if THIS isn’t a campaign ad for Nelson, then there is no such thing as a campaign ad.
To state otherwise simply makes a mockery of the system.
Oh, and Nelson weakened Medicare by $500 billion when he was the deciding vote for ObamaCare.
Lots of action at the Special Session hearings yesterday. And beyond the dueling lawyers for each side, what did we learn?
Well, that the TransCanada peeps know how to lay pipe and follow the rules that are presented to them. And that the people against the pipe really FEEL strongly against it. Oh, and that the Sandhills are “precious”.
And we are still awaiting ANYONE to dispute what UNL hydrogeologist Prof. Jim Goeke told the legislature when he testified that the current proposed route is the best route, and won’t — CAN’T — damage the Ogallala Aquifer.
In the mean time…
Can Herman Cain come back from the spate of harassment accusations against him? If he does beat them, can he beat Romney? (We are more or less on par with Jonah Goldberg’s thoughts on this.)
Is Romney a foregone conclusion? How do you feel about Romney?
Dive in Presidential.
Just for a totally random question, does this OWH ad make you want to be a teacher? Or make you want to be an Exorcist? We are just a bit baffled. But if the pipeline matter has taught us anything, it’s that appealing to people’s emotions is waaay more effective than going after their intellect.
Oh, and scaring them is always good too.
