Don Walton of the LJS “confirms” that Lou Ann Linehan is indeed thinking of running for Beau McCoy’s West Omaha Legislative seat (McCoy is term-limited).
Walton does not mention why he is “confirming” that with her…
40 minutes late, hair mussed…
Lots of the Twitterati are tweeting about Donald Trump’s 90 minute speech in Fort Dodge, Iowa last night.
Trump takes on Ben Carson directly, essentially mocking him for some of the things he said in his autobiography.
Many are essentially saying Trump came unglued. And Carly Fiorina took to The Facebook to call out Trump for being “pathological”.
Here’s some video of Trump as well.
And Trump also asked, “How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?”
And the Washington Post noted this…
The tirade came amid one of Trump’s busiest weeks yet on the campaign trail. Trump hosted “Saturday Night Live” last weekend and then spent Sunday doing interviews. Monday night he had a rally in Illinois. Tuesday night was the fourth GOP debate in Milwaukee. Wednesday morning, after about 90 minutes of sleep, Trump attended a breakfast in New Hampshire. Thursday he arrived in Iowa for a tour of a factory, television interviews and the rally at the community college.
FWIW, his hair looked regularly Trump-coiffed to me…
And what you’re reading on Twitter and other places is pretty much that Trump was sleep-deprived and out of control.
Author and Dilbert cartoonist, Scott Adams, on the other hand says this was classic and unstoppable Trump.
Trump has always been good at this game, but he took it up a level with the Iowa speech. I’m a professional speaker, and I was in awe. Watch his body language, his intonations, and his humor. He owned that audience. And he wasn’t reading a teleprompter. I believe this speech will be replayed in college classrooms for years as an example of best practices in persuasion.
Adams gives a list of ways the 9 minutes of that speech show how Trump will crush all comers. And he predicts Trump will not only win the GOP nomination, but will win the Presidency with 65% of the vote.
And National Review is noting the immigration battle between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Cruz will hammer Rubio on this, to go for the top Senate candidate in the bunch.
I do remember when similar argument broke out in Nebraska…
And an FYI, Marco Rubio will be at the Nebraska GOP’s Founder’s Day Dinner on Monday, November 23rd, at the LaVista Embassy Suites ($40/person).
