Well let us just get this out of the way. The Democrats got their dresses up over their heads because Attorney General Jon Bruning gave the Farm Bureau $100K.
On the face of it, looks pretty questionable, huh?
Except, let us look at the Dems reaction the other times Bruning’s office gave out free money:
2006, $50K to Groundwater Association: (crickets chirping)
2007: $30K to Nebraska Wildlife Federation: (wind rustling flag)
2009, $25K to Groundwater Association: (train horn in the distance)
2011, $100K to Project Harmony, which helps victims of child abuse and neglect: (person coughing in back row)
Oh, but now? “Why this just stinks!!! Ahwoogah! Ahhwoooogah!!!”
Look, if you don’t like the practice, write and bill, pass a law and don’t let the office do it anymore. Oh, and while you’re are at it, you can do the same thing with earmarks.
So Bob Kerrey hasn’t ruled out a Senate run, eh?
So he tells Joe Jordan.
We always like how Kerrey’s name is brought up and no one says to him, “Uh, you know, you don’t actually live in Nebraska and haven’t for years and years, right?”
Heck, even his bridge has one foot in Iowa.
Barack Obama and Lee Terry and the House and the Senate and Democrats and Unions and Republicans can’t agree on the Payroll Tax versus the Keystone XL Pipeline (and the non-conflict oil and lots of jobs)!
Somebody parachute Mike Flood into Washington!
(Keep ‘em comin’ Sweeper! Keep ‘em comin’!)
We wonder if Republicans are just trying to screw themselves out of the election this year, so they can be guaranteed some sort of Christie/Rubio ticket in 2016.
Because if the reason they have to try to sell Newt to the nation is, “See! Romney carries $10 grand in a money clip in his vest pocket! Next to his time piece and monocle!”, then we will just throw our hands up.
Look, if you’re like us, you love the Holidays, but hate shopping. Just the thought of wandering around the mall, dodging teenagers and waiting in line at Orange Julius makes our shoulders hurt and temples throb.
So you know what you do instead? You click over to Amazon.com, via Leavenworth Street’s links, and you go to their Holiday Deals that they have going all week. You pick out your stuff, it arrives at your doorstep (wrapped, if you’d like), and badda bing, badda boo, shopping done! And at no extra cost to you, a little anonymous love comes our way. Win, win, win.
You are now a citizen on the modern world. Have yourself another glass of eggnog and put your feet up.
