Dr. Ben Carson, the new leader in the polls in Iowa, will be in Omaha Friday at The Bookworm on 90th & Center at 7:30pm.
This is NOT on the campaign’s list of stops, and the good doctor will be there to sign his book, “A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties“ ($26.95 for the hardbound — but $14 on Amazon, via Leavenworth St!).
The BW says that “Signing Restrictions will apply”, which can often mean very little chatting and a restriction on photos with the candidate…er, author.
And on that note, there is also word that Senator Marco Rubio will be coming to Nebraska…soon.
Whether that visit will be to woo at of the Ricketts family for their endorsement of the Presidential candidate is unknown.
Of course, if they wanted to do it in Chicago instead, there’s a venue that just became available for the next few weeks…
Tom Brewer’s name was mentioned here as an unlikely primary opponent to 3rd District Rep. Adrian Smith again.
However, the rumor mill has churned out word that Brewer will instead run for the Unicameral. The scuttlebutt says that he would run in District 43 against State Senator Al Davis, who assumed U.S. Senator Deb Fischer’s old seat.
FWIW, Al Davis spent a year studying theater at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
Unrelated, retired Lt. Col. Tom Brewer spent 2 years in Afghanistan hunting down the Taliban.
When News Breaks, They Fix It
ICYMI, The Daily Show — the jokey/not jokey/we can’t decide “news” show on Comedy Central that no longer has Jon Stewart as the host, has taken a road trip to Nebraska to make fun of the Nebraskans and the Death Penalty.
Well, maybe not ALL Nebraskans.
Just the ones in favor of the Death Penalty.
And probably there will be a shot or two, or three…heck, ALL the shots will revolve around trying to obtain the (illegal?) drug from that one dude in India who supplies everyone.
Of course, the only good thing about this is …who watches this show since Stewart left? Sure maybe some underclassmen who couldn’t find the clicker that’s under the couch and Comedy Central was left on. But, that’s pretty much the demographic.
In any case, here’s what you won’t see: a tough, but fair, review into the issues.
The show is on COMEDY Central.
And the joke’s on…YOU.
