Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse addressed students and others at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law yesterday, and thus OWH writer Matt Hansen called him “obtuse.”
Here’s the quote, frankly without much context from Hansen:
“He’s undeniably smart. He’s undeniably ambitious. He’s undeniably obtuse and undeniably smooth at the same time. He’s undeniably himself.”
Wait, undeniably obtuse?
So, which of those terms he is applying to Sasse?
Is it “annoyingly insensitive”, as in he should be more sensitive to the Trump attacks?
Otherwise, as suggested on the Twitter this morning, Sasse might try to sentence Hansen to a month in solitary:
(Sure he resembles Andy Dufresne, but imagine Sasse as the angry warden here…)
Waiting for some sort of explnation from Hansen.
“Great Potatoes” is embarrassed for us
Obtuse is apparently what State Senator Burke Harr is accusing the Ricketts administration of.
As noted in the OWH, Harr is trying to rescind the sentence of every Nebraskan to have the Michigan State engorged Sower on their cars. He is making some sort of effort to Stop the Madness via legislative process, but it is not yet clear how this would or could happen.
The Gov’s office has only noted that the plates are already flying.
(By the way, I chuckled at the cartoon from Jeff Koterba today.)
Er…that was before…
A’member Bob Kerrey back in 2008 talking about Hillary Clinton (as she was running against Senator Barack Obama.)
“I like her, trust her, and have confidence in her…”
Well, that looks to have changed. Being interviewed on FOX, Kerrey now says of Hillary:
Her email scandal as “a tragic error,” said her claim that she set up the server for convenience was “false on its face,” and called her actions an attempt to “circumvent” the law.
See Kerrey’s comments here:
It would seem that Cosmic Bob is now Feelin’ the Bern.
Fool me once…
Thanks to an attentive reader who forwarded Leavenworth St. the “Ms. Brad Ashford in Alaska” story, reported earlier today.
That was one of those, if Ashford was in a bad comedy where he was playing both himself and his twin sister (à la Adam Sandler), stories.
And sure, it is all just a bad dream…until they inevitably meet at the Democrat Convention later this summer.
And you thought the GOP convo was going to be scary…
Enjoy that plastic fly in your chardonnay later this evening!
