First a little Separated at Birth for ya…
Denzel Washington, sporting the cool beanie in Training Day and…
Bob Kerrey sporting the striped beanie, while sipping his latte.
And, of course, speaking of Cosmic Bob, should we have expected any less of him?
Kerrey first told Nebraskans that he would make his decision on whether or not to run for Senate sometime between January 8th and January 12th. (And not the 3rd week of January, as the OWH reported.)
Then, when that date passed, he promised a decision by January 21st.
Next it was definitely a decision by the 28th.
And now? Super for sure a decision (and announcement?) …some time next week. (Is that when the final polling will be completed?)
How did he EVER get the nickname Cosmic Bob?
Deb Fischer’s camp announced their 2011 Q4 fundraising numbers.
She raised just under $67,000 for the quarter, and spent just under $65,000. That puts her at $295K for the cycle, with $207K COH.
The COH numbers puts her substantially lower that Jon Bruning’s $1.7M, but ahead of Don Stenberg’s $177K COH.
Of course Fischer doesn’t have a Sugar Daddy like South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint running ads for her like Stenberg does, so she is still at a disadvantage. She is going to need more cash than that to run serious TV.
Your thoughts on the GOP Presidential debate last night?
Is Florida, and the rest of the race officially Mitt’s to lose now? Did Newt’s lead go to his head? And has Newt made Mitt a better candidate?
Or any other thoughts you may have on our Federal Friday…
Hey, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (will Bob Kerrey have decided by then???). Well, get on the ball and order something for your honey on Amazon.com. You won’t have to wander the mall and you can get free shipping by ordering early.
Oh, and you’ll be sending a little valentine Leavenworth Street’s way when you click on our Amazon links by letting us wet our beaks, ALL at no extra cost to you. As the soccer fans in the Stallone movie shouted, “Victory!” (That’s translated from whatever it was they were chanting at the end during the penalty kick.)
Have a great weekend! May YOUR team be victorious! (Unless they’re playing my team…)
And be sure to follow Leavenworth Street on the Twitter for updates on stuff throughout the weekend (if there’s something worth updating).
