Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts today introduced the new Nebraska license plate featuring The Sower.
The Sower holding his…
Well YOU look at this:
Got it. Wanted to feature The Sower statue on top of the capitol. But they HAD to use that angle?
And we are to understand that NO ONE at the meeting said, “Uh, Governor. When you look at this, it kind of looks like it is a guy holding his…manhood. Is that really what we want representing Nebraska as kids play the license plate game on the way to Wally World?”
I can just hear mothers across America. “Uh, no Logan! No Emma!, you don’t need to check off Nebraska. Yes, I know you don’t have it yet…but.. uh…OOOH LOOK at that billboard! Have you ever SEEN a Stuckeys before? NO, don’t look at that Mazda’s plates! NO!”
Couldn’t just have used some corn or a cow or a Chimney Rock or something.
HAD to go with the guy holding his…seed-bag in a questionable fashion.
In other Ricketts family news, apparently Pete’s mom is still funding the anti-Donald Trump ads across America. This time she gave $2 Million (a/k/a “walking around money”) on top of the original $3.5M to fund the current run of ads which frames Trump as a misogynist.
One point of interest in all of this is who joined in with the Ricketts clan on the ads: Billionaire hedge-fund founder Paul Singer.
Singer took an 11% stake in Sidney, Nebraska based Cabela’s last fall, and many are wondering if they could eventually move out of their Panhandle HQ.
One would certainly wonder about the relationship between the Governor, his family, and the new persuader in the Nebraska company.
When they talk about The Donald, does the subject of Cabela’s ever come up?
Statements on Brussels terrorism
Senator Deb Fischer:
“While the goal of these attacks may be to fracture the free world with fear, our response should demonstrate resolve and unity to defeat these terrorists. Those who planned and coordinated these attacks, as well as anyone who provided assistance, must be brought swiftly to justice.”
Senator Ben Sasse:
“Brussels is the latest battlefield in the fight against violent Islam. Leadership is not found in platitudes that do not name our enemy. The American people deserve a serious, long-term strategy to defeat violent Islam.”
Governor Pete Ricketts:
“These continued attacks by Islamic extremists are an assault on freedom-loving people and the shared values of our democratic societies. “
Side of Bacon
Today (Tuesday) at 4:30pm Senator Deb Fischer will be making a “special announcement” at the Don Bacon for Congress Headquarters.
This is posted here so that Brad Ashford can send his Trackers over to be sure to video all of the people there watching.
No word on what Senator Fischer will be announcing, but the guess here is that it is not an endorsement of Bernie Sanders.
Watch @LeavenworthSt on the Twitter for breaking news and re-Tweets on this, as well as the results of tonight’s primary and caucus.
Oh, and you can also submit your prediction here for Arizona and Utah as to where the chips will fall.
