Well, Domina came out for the legalization of pot.
Oh, was it somewhat more nuanced than that? “We need to consider it…” “He’s open to it…”
Look, if your campaign is now based on not harshing on someone’s mellow, then you have admitted that you’re going nowhere.
You are not interested in gathering votes. You are not interested in appealing to Likely Voters.
You are pushing what is still a fringe issue in the hopes of…solidifying your base?…or something.
Hey look, it is an interesting discussion. And one that we would argue could be had once the data is in from Colorado. But if your goal is to win an election in conservative Nebraska, this ain’t the path.
We hardly knew ye, Dave.
But just to hammer that point home, Dave was also caught — by Buzzfeed, no less — plagairizing the Ag and Energy positions on his website.
But then Dave went to the local newspapers and was like…
“Dude! We like, totally footnoted that thing! But then some other dude, whose brother like kicks ASS at making websites? That dude was rocking the website, but like, was doing something else, and, like, dropped the footnotes? You know? And then I was like, totally, ‘Whoa! Dude!‘ And he was like, ‘Dude, What?‘ I was like, ‘Dude!‘ and he was totally ‘Dude?‘ So, like, it was there before, but we lost it? You know?”
And then someone turned on the Fantasia DVD (the old one, not the new one) and then it was cool.
Adn as long as we’re harshing on Dave’s mellow, take a look at the Tweet he posted this morning, to…show his solidarity?… with the Hong Kong protestors:
So, the Chi-Coms must “give all a real chance?” Yeah, that’s what the guy in front of the tank was saying.
Domina toes the Liberal line with, “as long as the Chinese Communists spread the wealth and give up some power to the citizens of Hong Kong, everything will be cool.”
You know, they don’t need, oh we don’t know….DEMOCRACY!
How about VOTING rights?
Of course, the protestors could Tweet that…if only the government allowed Twitter.
Yeah, we are aware of the issues Hong Kong has with aquiring basic items, and such. But the stem of this is Communism vs Democracy. What an idea.
Oh, and by the way, great Tweet about “concentrated wealth” from the Hundred Millionaire.
Many concert-goers watching Neil Young and Willie Nelson (wait a MINUTE! Domina’s weed support is all starting to make sense now!) are still blisfully unaware of the actual science regarding water issues and the Keystone XL Pipeline, pulling out the “Water is more important than oil,” trope.
But Net Nebraska ID’d the real basis behind “protest movements”, be it Occupy Wall St., the People’s Climate March or whatever else requires tie-dye, homemade signs and driving long distances to protest gasoline use:
“Actually, I’m here for the music and the chicks.”
The aforementioned Mike Nash of Omaha noted that he has no opinion about the pipeline.
Here is a really nice shot of Democrat Nebraska 2nd District Congressional candidate Brad Ashford at a Planned Parenthood affair:
Don Walton reports that Republican Pete Ricketts is leading Democrat Chuck Hassebrook in the Nebraska Governor’s race by around 7 points.
And finally, we would just like to say that if we were starting a herbicide company, maybe selling atrazine, we would TOTALLY use Dave Domina’s campaign corn thing for our logo.
It really says corporate agriculture, no?
