Nebraska 2nd District Congressman Don Bacon spent the 4th of July walking (and running) at various parades around the district.
At the GE George Parade in Dundee, the retired General marched dutifully along while being heckled by a group of Bacon-haters. (Not to be confused with the delicious Wendy’s sandwich.)
So when he got to Ralston, and the same gang was helping the folks there enjoy their 4th by yelling at the Congressman, Rep. Bacon decided to greet the creeps directly:
So who’s the guy who made his own “Bacon Kills / Bacon Sucks” stencils?
Oh, just a member of the Nebraska Democrat Party’s Central Committee.
His name is Mark Vondrasek and he enjoys being a thorn in everyone’s side.
Everyone’s? Yep, he is apparently on the side of the now infamous Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, –who wrote about her laughter at Congressmen after the assassination attempt, claimed she was the victim, then worked with a friend to (allegedly) blackmail a fellow party member before helping to get him booted from the party.
So, because Vondrasek is on Gentry-Tipton’s side, that means he’s ….anti-Democrat Party Chair Jane Kleeb.
So how do Kleeb and Bacon differ on their approach?
Don walked right up to this guy, and took a photo with him. Vondrasek as you can see, flipped the bird.
(That means he’s fighting against “The Man”, in case you weren’t down with the opposition’s call signs.)
But what does Jane do when questioned by the exact same guy? Let’s watch:
She turns tail and runs.
Well, she walks away as fast as she can.
Won’t answer his repeated questions. Won’t address him as a Central Committee member.
Smiles and flees.
What’s the idea again? They go low and we go high?
All politics is local, friends.
And it doesn’t get any more local than walking down the street in a parade. (Or, conversely, walking away.)
And just to put a bow on it, here’s how former Rep. Brad Ashford responded when asked a direct question about his party affiliation in a similar parade setting:
And these are always cool, so here’s KETV’s timelapse of the Omaha skyline on the evening of the 4th:
