Will Gov. Dave Heineman take the plunge and run for Mike Johanns’s unexpectedly open Senate seat?

While Heineman refused to say yes or no Monday afternoon, Johanns says Heineman “would be great.”

See what else Johanns told Nebraska Watchdog’s Joe Jordan.

    WFL . . . here’s your chance!!! You can run for office basically unopposed. Start campaigning for funds and get your supporters organized . . . . D.C. is the place for you, my friend!!!!

    WFL: I totally agree with TT. I’ll even donate to your campaign fund. However, when it comes time to “put up or shut up,” my guess is that you will simply shut up.

    Thanks . . . I do think it is a rather novel idea!!! Do you think I will get a positive response?? Just kidding . . .

    How long can a guy ride coattails? It’s getting embarassing.

    Any ideas on how to condense “Heineman is a bought and paid for Koch facist!!!!” down to bumper sticker material?

    How about “HeineyMan is a Koch sucker”?

    Actually, the reason why I haven’t been on here for over a week is because I’ve been too busy while away in D.C. to bother with the likes of you, Tuchas Turtle. 1) Why would I want to run for a job I don’t want? 2) There’s no use trying to convince people too ignorant to realize that they keep voting for Fascists and racists repeatedly thinking that they’re really “Republicans” (like you) otherwise, so that rules out ~60% of the Nebraska electorate. 3) There is NO way anybody can raise enough money to counter the millions of dollars and hundreds of mindless astroturf AfP drone volunteers provided by the Koch brothers to see their chosen anointed one in office. 4) HeineyMan won’t run for the Senate. He’s content to take the seven figure salary and responsibility-less job that TransCanada offered him in their behind closed doors meetings to sell out Nebraska farmers and ranchers, his blood money for when this State’s Ag and Cattle industries collapse after the first leak of the KXL into the Ogallala Aquifer destroys this State’s “brand” for product excellence in the international and U.S. markets. HeineyMan was Johanns’ personally selected lapdog, because he was a good little Party stooge who did whatever he was told – just like Mikey J – and now after ten years of Herr Fuhrer HeineyMan dictatorship here in Nebraska he’s been told that he has served his purpose and it’s time to quietly disappear back under the rock he was found under.

    For one who has been challenging people around here to “put up or shut up” none of us have seen you show the balls to take your own advice and file for any office – perhaps because Susan Smith’s disastrous attempt to run as a clueless, closet racist, out of touch with reality twit in North Omaha showed you the futility of truly stupid actions? Or perhaps because you spend your time sitting in your underwear in your mother’s basement 24/7 with your RSS set to Nebraska Watchdog?
