If I was running for Senate in Nebraska, I too would be hoping like Hell that the progressive blogosphere would be spitting blood and screaming futilely at the thought. It’d help explain away why I’d… well, I would personally take a job like running the New School. It’d be too much like being the warden of an insane asylum where the inmates are the only ones with the keys and the wrist restraints. But if I had taken that job, having liberal activists pout until they turned Blue in the face and fell over would be a bit of a mitzvah.
Not that it will help Bob Kerrey much, since he really is… how did Politico put it, again? Ah, yes – a “latte-sipping carpetbagger who spent the last decade in the liberal enclave of Greenwich Village.” More to the point, he wouldn’t vote to repeal Obamacare.
US Today (H/T: Reason) is finding majorities for repealing Obamacare among registered voters in swing states: anybody feel like arguing that likely voters in Nebraska (McCain 57%) are going to be more forgiving on that topic?
