4. Had to hire an outside service to keep the peace.

Actually you are probably looking at the Google ads for Scott Kleeb, Senatorial candidate from Nebraska.

8. Clicked on it -- ad for Scott Kleeb running in Nebraska
Looks like he's very in to a Cowboy theme campaign. I guess these days branding politicians is like picking a theme for your kid's birthday party.

"I'm Patty and I'm running for Congress as a Buzz Lightyear representative. I come in Peace!"

or "I'm running on the Dora the Explorer Ticket. Donate to my campaign and you'll get all sorts of cool explorer gear so you can go exploring too!"

Still, I guess the ads support DU, and Scott Kleeb looks better in his cowboy duds than W. ever did.

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox /
It has all sorts of handy things it does. And there is Mozilla Thunderbird for email too.

23. Huh, I thought it would block them. I have a donation star, maybe that's it?
I thought firefox would block them. Maybe you are up against paying $5 "donation" to block them?

12. I'm not a cowboy but I got to play one in real life
Don't have a big hat but I did have some cattle and last year we were able to move them to summer pasture on horseback. Just like the old days.

This year, different story. Had to sell the entire herd except for one bull. We can sell his little swimmers.

20. He's the Marlboro man.
It's some kind of stealth Marlboro ad disguised as a political ad.

27. From dKosopedia....
http://dkosopedia.com/wiki/Scott_Kleeb

From Ryan Anderson's dKos diary:

Kleeb is a fourth-generation Nebraskan who was born on a military base in Turkey and attended high school in Italy (where he was valedvictorian of his class and an MVP for both the wrestling and soccer teams). Upon returning to the states, he became a professional ranch hand in Western Nebraska and Eastern Colorado. He recieved a degree in history and political science from the University of Colorado before recieving a Masters in International Relations from Yale. For his recent doctoral dissertation, he focused heavily on the history American cattle ranching.

<...>

Kleeb is "an agreesive campaigner who's canvassing this massive district (roughly 70% of Nebraska's total area) one county at a time. When he's not working the land in Dunning, he's on the road, and he's been reaching out to activists at home, online (quickly amassing an online newsletter with over 2,000 subscribers), and out of state (word is he created quite the buzz when he gave a presentation to the Democratic National Commitee Meeting in Phoenix last year , saying "You folks voted for a 50-state strategy. Well, I am the 50-state strategy.")

In addition, he is pulling help from some wonderful surrogates. Former Governor/Senator/9-11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey has signed on as chair of his campaign finance committee, stating: "I am deeply impressed with Scott's commitment to thinking deeply about the issues facing Central and Western Nebraska. He envisions a Nebraska with jobs and people flowing in instead of out. If that vision is to be realized, we need leaders with the energy and intelligence to promote fresh ideas. And Scott is such a leader."

And Nebraska legend Ted Sorenson -former speechwriter and presidential aide to JFK- has joined Scott on the campaign trail, stating "When I think of Nebraska, I think of Kennedy, Kerrey and Kleeb." <1>


One strange this I found is this.. In 2004, he married Jane Fleming, the former Executive Director of the Young Democrats of America. On Wiki it says.. Kleeb is married to Jane Fleming, political analyst for Fox News. It seems she's the token Dem female on Faux. Newshounds likes her so I'll have to look up some of her interviews.
