Always fun when the “people-with-cell-phone-cameras”, which represents probably a majority of the country, fire up their devices and make like citizen journalists.
Case in point: Bob Kerrey on the way back to his election state from his home in New York City on Saturday. Nothing like complaining about your opponent’s out-of-state connections…from The Big Apple.
Quick Bob! Change back into your barn jacket!
And a final follow-up on the debate biz…
Funny how Kerrey pleaded with Deb Fischer to join him at Boys’ State, because it “‘sends just the right message’ at a time when the future of young Americans is so much at stake.”
(Oh brother. And he finished up with a few bars of, “I believe that children are our future…”)
But in nearly the same breath (they are one entity, no?), in response to the recent story about Kerrey’s The New School tenure, where the students literally revolted against him (occupying their school), Paul Johnson noted that,
“The students never really cared for Bob.”
So much for teaching them well and letting them lead the way, eh?
As we sift through the flotsam and jetsam from last week’s Senate primary, we see that Bob Kerrey is still trying to shake that Joe Ricketts vending machine to see if he can get angry-Democrat cash to fall into the hopper.
Kerrey sent out a letter to his fellow liberals complaining that Ricketts was trying to “buy” the Nebraska election. Which of course is ironic, considering that Kerrey raised 27% of his campaign money from New York City residents and only 22% from Nebraskans.
So maybe Kerrey is hoping to give New York CITY its own Senator, yeah? That would be new.
And Deb Fischer, who has a 100% Pro-Life voting record in the Nebraska Legislature, was endorsed today by the National Right to Life Committee and the Susan B. Anthony List.
This also may have had something to do with Bob Kerrey voting five times against the partial-birth abortion ban.
