New anti-Ben Nelson…er…ISSUE ad, from Crossroads GPS. See it here:
Continuing on the theme of “Nelson is there when Obama needs him.” People are finally figuring this out.
Don Stenberg’s endorsement by Senator Jim DeMint has had some immediate obvious payouts. DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund has put ads up (above the headline banner) on The Drudge Report…
…and according to their website, they have raised over $50,000 for Stenberg this week.
In addition, they have an ad up (on the web anyway, with we assume a TV buy) for Stenberg. See it here:
Annnnd, Stenberg has his own “ad” up. See that here:
We have to chuckle at that last one a bit: MY that’s a poofy sleeved shirt and tight sweater vest! And a bit of a bare-bones fireplace set there, eh? No photos, or maybe a paper fold-out turkey to add? Reminds us of the brick backdrop at a comedy club. Remember to tip your waitresses.
In any case, a good week-long hit for Stenberg. Can he sustain it?
Interesting testimony on the Keystone XL pipeline yesterday. For the pro-pipers you had Brigham McCown, an expert on developing and laying pipelines. McCown was asked questions by five different Senators including Dubas (an anti-piper) and Langemeier (Natural Resources Committee chair). Neither Dubas nor Langemeier engaged any other witness all day. McCown was in the witness chair for 25 minutes.
Senator Jim Smith stated publicly that McCown was the only witness appearing before the panel who could answer numerous Committee Member questions due to his expertise.
On the other hand, the anti-pipers had a mother who carried her baby with her and said that she was against the pipeline because mothers known something about leaks.
And that is pretty much where the debate on this issue is.
Looks like the Penn State board agreed with us that JoePa had to leave now. Interesting to see that the Penn State student body is so pro-child abuse that they rioted about it. Oh, but hey, we have to respect their right to protest, right? If we’ve learned anything from rioters in, say, Oakland, it’s that we must acknowledge their rage.
Don’t judge, folks. Don’t judge.
