We mentioned yesterday that Don Walton of the LJS said that Bob Kerrey is “laser focused on entitlement reform.”
Lasers we tells ya!
And an L. St. reader reminded us that Don should know from lasers!
Don noted that Democrat Congressional candidate Tom White was “focused on (Lee) Terry with the intensity of a laser beam“!
And he zeroed in on Ben Nelson’s “laser-like focus on spending cuts“.
But it is not just the Dems who posses the photon stimulation gene.
The Don also postulated that the NEGOP “has become laser-focused on” Ben Nelson.
Now we are not suggesting that Don has been to a few too many of those Pink Floyd light shows at the planetarium but…
No…yes we are suggesting that.
On Bob Kerrey’s laser-cat focus, we will bet that the whole entitlement reform argument will be the basis of Kerrey’s “the powers that be in Washington may not like this, but I am willing to shake things up!” plea to voters.
(You know, since he sure as heck does not want them to look at his prior voting records to see how he would actually act in the Senate.)
And the gang at “Newsy” (not to be confused with the 1992 Disney musical about paperboys – starring The Dark Knight?) put together this compilation of “progressive” (liberal) sources who are not any more keen on a Kerrey candidacy than conservatives are:
Of course the Kerrey folks will eat this up to say, “Look, the ultra-libs hate Bob too! That means he is independent!”
Blah blah blah.
Ooh Markos! You’re so edgy! You do not want a Democrat like Kerrey unless he is fully on board with everything!
Yup, they would rather have a conjoined Jon Bruning and Don Stenberg than another Bob Kerrey or Ben Nelson. Yeah. Totally believable. Fight on and all that.
Because everyone saw Hassebrook as having a fighting chance.
Bob Kerrey’s man Paul Johnson pointed out that the NEGOP used “good campaign tactics” in challenging his client’s bogus voter registration address.
And in the mean time, Camp Kerrey is wasting no time in pretending that Kerrey is actually “residing” in Jay Noddle’s Guest House.
One of our spies noticed a brand spanking new jet-black mailbox that went up for Kerrey Guest House (nothing gets past us!).
“Guest” being the operative word there.
The OWH’s Robynn Tysver has apparently been allowed to get a bit frisky on her “Political Bites” column in Warren’s New Toy. She referred to Senator Jim DeMint as Don Stenberg’s “sugar daddy”, as Stenberg is waiting on DeMint’s Senate Conservative Fund PAC to finance another round of ads to compete with Jon Bruning’s latest barrage.
Now we are just waiting for Robynn to use the same term when describing the Jane Kleeb – Dick Holland relationship.
We want to thank those of you who have continued making your Amazon.com purchases via Leavenworth Street’s Amazon links (up top!). When you do, you send a little love our way — anonymously and at no extra cost to you! And you then get something cool in the mail (or possibly a download to your tablet).
It is win-win-win-win-win. Unless you are a Marxist in which case you hate to support Capitalism. But you can still get a copy of Das Kapital on Amazon. So let’s go ahead and add another WIN!
If you haven’t seen it, the Club for Growth endorsed Don Stenberg for U.S. Senate.
Feel free to jump in with your thoughts, and we will talk more about it tomorrow.
