HeeHeeHoHo. Are we just being a little nutty?
Well, not so much. See Bob Kerrey’s refrain — ever since he discovered that he wasn’t going to be carried across the bridge he bought (with your money) by the swelling masses — is that we MUST get rid of partisanship in Washington, DC!
You see, it is partisanship that ruins ALL his good ideas! If only we got rid of the parties that have been around since the founding of the country — like Bob says we should — we would solve all the problems, like Bob thinks we should.
And while, of course, it is just Kerrey pandering to the masses, saying what he thinks they’d like to hear, could it be any more comical?
Kerrey is the one who genuflected to Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid before he he would deign to flitter around Norfolk or Hastings.
Kerrey is the one who strutted into the DEMOCRAT Senatorial Campaign Committee with all of his fellow New Yorkers who ponied up the big bucks after he kicked poor Chuck Hassebrook to the curb.
And Kerrey is the one who is trying to convince Nebraskans that he will cross the aisle and vote with Republicans! Oh how good of him! But seriously, follow us here, folks. Why in the world do Nebraskans need a Bob Kerrey who, contrary to his entire record in the Senate, promises he’ll vote in favor of some Republican stuff… when they could get Republican Deb Fischer who they KNOW will vote for the Republican stuff?????????
Are we taking crazy pills here? Kerrey is just itching for the day when there are no labels in Congress so that you won’t know that he is voting like a liberal Democrat, because he doesn’t have a (D) after his name? Are there people who listen to this drivel?
Well, apparently the Michael Gerson of the Washington Post types still swoon when Cosmic Bob puts them under his spell.
And we have no doubt that a certain columnist for LJS will lap up what Bob feeds him. And of course the OWH editorial board will answer back to Kerrey, “How high!?!”
But so far those polled in Nebraska aren’t buying into Kerrey’s schtick. Kerrey isn’t running as an Independent or some sort of Bull Moose candidate. Kerrey still supports ObamaCare, is against Partial Birth Abortion bans and loves him some tax increases.
If it talks like a Demcorat, walks like a Democrat, raises money like a Democrat and votes like a Democrat, guess what? It ain’t a duck.
Or a Republican. Or an Independent.
Won’t. Get. Fooled. Again.
Cute how some Dems are tittering with joy about some Romney staffer not using spell-check on a logo (misspelling the 57 United States, or something).
But did you catch the Polish Foreign Minister’s slap down of President Obama, after the Prez referred to the Nazi Concentration Camps as, “Polish Death Camps”?
Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski said,
“It’s a pity that such a dignified ceremony was overshadowed by ignorance and incompetence.”
Yeah, but tell us how you really feel.
Wonder how he feels about Democrat Marion Barry referring to him as a “Pollock”?
And we see this continuing mantra by Don Walton and others…well mainly Don… about how the Obama campaign is going to come into Omaha and take over again, and sweep Bob Kerrey and John Ewing into office and some such.
And while we all saw how excited the Obama partisans were back in 2008, does anyone think that same fervor and excitement exists in 2012? That was a massive anti-Bush, pro-first-black-President whiplash that sailed the massively inexperienced Senator into office. But Bush is gone, and Obama has his own record to run on now. And people who felt so good about themselves because they pretended that they didn’t see race as a factor when they pulled the lever, are now realizing that maybe that is all they saw. Or maybe they are just realizing that maybe that shouldn’t have been the biggest factor.
But hey, let’s all pretend it’s just like 2008 and watch the Obama coat-tails bring everyone along for the ride. Right? Right??
Readers, it is getting more and more difficult for us here at the humming Leavenworth Street HQ to keep pumping out a daily post. We have been going hard for around nine months or so, but we are probably going to have to reign things in. It is simply a time matter — as in we have less and less of it.
But we will try to stay on top of breaking news and give you the opportunity to read and talk about Nebraska politics. But you may get a little more time in between. Thanks for your understanding.
Now, to make us all feel better why don’t you go ahead and pick up something for Dad at Amazon.com? You’ll give a little love back to L.St., help us keep the light on, and you’ll get great deals at no extra cost.
And keep on telling your friends about Leavenworth Street! And tell 2 enemies!
