Yesterday’s “worst gift ever” show was very funny and often touching. You can listen to it at the Hughniverse, and if you aren’t yet a member, give yourself a last minute Christmas present and join. Lileks is snowed in in Minnesocold, so his “Private Label” posting should not be missed.
Have a wonderful Christmas. “Repeal the Deal” postings resume tomorrow.
UPDATE: The Ben Nelson Blowback in nebraska begins. How long until they are calling him “Bag Man Ben?”
He’s got a chance to change back and save his reputation and his job, and my guess is the former is much, much more important to the senator. He made a spectacular misjudgment about what his constituents believed and wanted, but he can repair that with a candid admission of error.
Meanwhile, scores of Democratic congressmen are watching the Nelson saga unfold. Help them understand what it means with a call via the “Take Further Action” button in the “Free Our Healthcare Box” in the right hand column, and with a contribution to ReverseTheVote.org.
