Ben Nelson and the Moonwalk

Have to admit that, as a child of the 80s, I've paid attention to the media coverage surrounding the death of Michael Jackson. Despite all of his weirdness in recent years, I've tried to remember the Michael Jackson of my youth--the one honored by President Reagan. And it doesn't get any better than the first time he moonwalked in public.

The moonwalk is an amazing dance step. Once has to deftly slide across the ground without taking a position. In some ways it's like Senator Ben Nelson and his politics. He's constantly moving around, deftly at times, without taking a position, but attempting to please everyone in Washington and Nebraska and beyond . . . .


  1. Mark,

    Ben is going to dance right through the next election if you folks can't come up with a respectable challenger. I'm not hearing any names.

  2. Nebraska Republicans have a VERY strong bench. The list of likely Republican candidates to knock Washington Ben Nelson off his pedestal in 2012 is long.

  3. Mark...

    I am still not hearing any names??? "Heineman the Stimulator?" "Bruning the Retreater?" Surely not "Shane Wrong-Way Osborn?" Yep...the list is long. Once you get the names figured out have them provide a platform too.
