Republicans Lose Their Manners

by Kyle Michaelis
Surprise, suprise....the Republican National Committee has taken away Sen. Ben Nelson's gold star and replaced it with a far less impressive red check marking his support for Samuel Alito's nomination to the US Supreme Court on their website.

Also gone is the request (mentioned below) that voters call and thank Nelson - even including his office's phone number to facilitate the efforts. Seems worries about the mixed signal this sent as Nebraska Republicans desperately attempt to defeat Nelson forced a reconsideration.

Hilarious. Wonder how many phone calls it took before that complaint got through to GOP High Command. Still, I'd say it's kind of rude to take back a thank you like this. Miss Manners would not approve.

So Nelson votes as the Nebraska Repelican Party would like but they ignore that. Then it’s back to the Nelson’s a no good Senator again that has done nothing but screw Nebraskans. I think Nebraskans understand Ben Nelson more than they will be swayed by the propaganda.
