Nice piece. We always like the “talking to the camera” ads and Fischer sells it here on all of the right notes.
Looking forward to more.
The Washington Post’s “The Fix” has their rundown of the top Senate races most likely to change party hands.
As Casey Kasem would say, “Holding at Number 2, for the 12th week in a row…Nebraska, by Deb Fischer.”
Dating ourselves? Well, OK, here’s what the Post actually had to say:
At this point, the only drama left in the race is centered around how much former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) will lose by. Deb Fischer can start measuring the drapes barring some sort of catastrophic mistake.
Trust us Dems: This will only make GOPers work HARDER for Fischer. No one will coast on this — especially if it means they can be on the winning team.
And that being said, watch out for Kerrey to just start throwing haymakers. “I’m half Republican“? Ha! Kerrey will likely put out an ad with him and a Hal Daub-look-alike sharing a box of popcorn at the anti-Obama movie.
Keep you feet on the ground, and keep reachin’ for the stars…
And speaking of desperation, we are hearing from our DC sources that outgoing Senator Ben Nelson really really really really really wants Kerrey to win the race against Fischer. He has apparently been pushing Kerrey’s candidacy hard behind the scenes in our nation’s capital, likely getting as many names and as much money on Kerrey’s side.
And this is pretty much along the lines of shoring up his legacy in Nebraska politics.
It should be obvious that Nelson has pretty much been shamed by the Cornhusker Kickback. He figures that if Kerrey is elected then somehow all will be right in his political world.
Of course there may be much more to that story that anyone has really delved into, but we will leave that for another day.
Suffice it to say, we likely have not seen the anything close to the viscous attacks that the Dems will bring out as this campaign comes to a head.
And Don Walton, “Voter ID laws could keep some Americans from voting and influence the results in a few key states. “
Wow, what a bunch of Leftist crap. Yeah.
So some voters will need to (gasp!) show a piece of ID that actually says they the proper person who is casting said ballot? You know, like they the ID they have to show when they fly. Or go into a Federal Courthouse. Or see the President give a speech..
Then again, those people will be overwhelming overshadowed by all the dead Chicagoans who vote for Obama anyway, right? (God rest their souls.)
And for those of you who found our last post to be a bit off-beat, we will explain:
The Corner recently had links of sand sculptures up. We, like most average citizens, always get a kick out of the skill and effort that goes into those things.
Then on Saturday morning, a discussion came up on an author venting about the lack of great art coming out of Europe or the U.S. any more. And that got us to thinking about the great sand art, and how so little of it is of the “modern” type, i.e. you can actually tell what was sculpted. And then that got us thinking about a little statute we own made of Alvastone, and whether the cost of making a large statue out of that stuff is cheaper than other traditional methods. (We would guess it is, but really don’t know any of the details.)
Anyway, just a Saturday morning idea to bounce around with your coffee and Wheaties. And we still think it is an idea with potential.
