Smokin' in the boys room

As we wait for Jordan McGrain's closing thoughts from the GOP convention, a few items...


Scott Kleeb is a ...SMOKER??? (Hey, just like Dem hero Barack Obama!)

We learned this from a random blog from the Dem convention in Denver where Kleeb was found sucking on a cancer stick:
Nebraska Senate candidate and New Yorker Talk of the Town hottie Scott Kleeb, smoking outside the Rolling Stone party and complaining about how The New Yorker drew him with his jeans tucked into his boots, which is not how he wears them.
So now that the Dems and their press cohorts have declared it open season on just about everything about a candidate, we have a few questions for candidate Kleeb:

  • How long have you been a smoker?
  • Are you addicted to nicotine?
  • If so, have you ever tried to quit?
  • Do you smoke in the house?
  • Do you smoke near your children?
  • Do they know you smoke?
  • If so, what do they think about your smoking?
  • Does your wife approve of your smoking? (Does she smoke?)
  • Do you smoke in the car?
  • If so, do you chuck your spent coffin-nails out the window near passing motorists, or do you pile them up in the ashtray for your driver to enjoy?
  • Do you believe in additional taxes on smokers, since they will incur more smoking-related illnesses?
  • What did you think of those post-mortem Yule Brenner commercials?
These are just a few questions off the tops of our heads. We're sure our readers have a few more.


And today is D-Day for Kandidate Kleeb!

That would be Driver's License Day!!! Scott Kleeb can now legally get his driver's license back.

You may remember that Kleeb lost his driver's license back in March 2008 after receiving his sixth traffic ticket in twenty-two months, most for lead-booted-ness.

However, in order for Kleeb to be eligible to renew his license, he must show that he has obtained high-risk insurance, which requirement will remain in effect until 2011.

Can anyone insurance minds tell us what that will cost him? Just curious...


Racking them up. As noted all over the place, the Farm Bureau endorsed Mike Johanns recently.

Johanns has now been endorsed by the Farm Bureau, the NRA, Nebraska Right to Life and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Despite all this (or maybe because of it) expect Kleeb to intensify his attacks on Johanns. With the increased attention on Obama in Nebraska and the swooning Kleeb has received by the nationwide liberal establishment, the pressure will be on him to at least perform decently against Johanns.

A trouncing by 25% -- coupled with his 10% loss to Congressman Adrian Smith in the Year of the Democrat -- would be an embarrassment at this point.

First of all...Thanks for the PSA alerting us to Speed Racer's return to Nebraska's highways and byways. I will definitely pay closer attention to the intersections on my trips to Hastings.

I imagine the smoking thing is a buildup to his next gig as the replacement Marlboro Man. So much for his concern for America's health and reducing health costs.

Poor Maya and Kora...having to inhale all that second hand smoke while daddy races down the road...this also explains Jane's puffy face.

Oh man, I didn't even think of the Marlboro Man image. I may have to update the photo...

Nice list of Johanns' endorsements, but you know that Johanns is running scared! Kleeb is now catching up in the would brave -30 degree weather for a smoke demographic!

Why wouldn't they endorse him? He has been on their payrolls for over twenty years. He has been their boy since they attached the first string to him and he became the state's number one puppet show.

I don't smoke, but I did fire up a Swisher on the boat the other night. I guess that makes me a pro-Castro, marxist, communist, Stalinistic, leftist liberal, nicotene addict? Did I miss anything boys?

It doesn't mean squat to me that when you are looking down on the rest of us while dipping your imported cigars in your single malt scotches from the "power room" while wearing your crested smoking jackets, and having Rochester clean up after you, that you may have some double standards.

Speaking of Rochester, it was nice to see the broad mix of cultural and racial differences at your convention.. I thought I was in the Vanilla only aisle in the supermarket. There is nothing wrong with going into a Baskin Robbins once in a while, since Anglos will be a minority 25 years from now. Its nice to know that a white protestant and a Republican voting Catholic still has a place to call home. Is it true they called Guiness to find out if they set a record for the largest assembly of men wearing Navy Blue suits with power ties?

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised - after all, damp-drawered Dems have been telling us for a couple of years how "smokin' hot" he is. Little did we know they really meant it.

While we're asking questions of the Adams County Adonis, here are a few I'd like answered:

We hear much of the "rancher with the Ph.D." but to date I have been unable to verify that the degree has actually been conferred, or, for that matter, that he ever defended his much-vaunted "Rawhide and Gunsmoke" thesis - or whatever it was titled. Can anyone state with documentable certainty that he really does have a real honest-to-Eli Ph.D., and that his use of the title is legit?

Secondly, is he still on the staff of Hastings College, either permanent or adjunct status? Sources on the campus there say they haven't seen a whisper of him since last spring. If this is true, then shouldn't he be advertised as a FORMER history professor?

And finally, what is the meaning of life? Surely he can tell us that ... he seems to be positively oracular on most other matters - though, unlike most of his liberal elitist homies, he is strangely silent on the subject of premarital pregnancy among the offspring of vice presidential candidates.

Inquiring minds want to know.

I don't smoke. That must have been the Big He you saw with that cigar.

Unk, If you look up the Yale Herald, Oct 13th 2006 you will find him listed as Scott Kleeb PHD. It also goes into other talk about his educational experiences. I would understand why you may be suspect of this school because Bush Heavy and the Bush Light came from there, too.

My sources at Hastings college,(three or four students all said they saw him in class) I can't say if he has taken a leave of absence, or what.

Last and not least, maybe he has taken the high road on this unplanned pregnancy. Obama has publicly said if his staff brings it up, they are gone. The Republicans need to keep it alive, because it draws so many women voters into the circle. They want all women to identify with Palin and her problems. I hate to use you namesake in vain, but I bet the day the rabbit died, the Palins weren't so civil and public about it. I know you are aged, and experience beyond my years Unk, but the first baby can come anytime, but the second one takes nine months. I'm guessing a lot of first born children had short term pregnancies. As a man much wiser than me once said, "you amongst us without sin, cast the first stone!"

Appearances can be deceptive. For example, Obama at his public appearances puts all the black people in the rear and surrounds himself with white people, so you'll think his audiences are much whiter than they actually are.

Yep, we've come a long way since Montgomery, 1956.

So is it better to not have attracted a whole lot of African American supporters, or to be ashamed of the 90% who support you?

Pipsiewah said...

You left me on that one RW. I'm confused by "is it not better to have". I see alot of black and white. Maybe your Fox News is playing with you.

macdaddy said...

Kleeb very wisely has stayed away from discussion of Bristol Palin's pregnancy. It's a no-win situation for the Dems. But when's that ever stopped them before?

Right Wing Professor said...

We don't have cable out here in the boonies. Fox has a News Channel? I watch Fox for Family Guy and House. Ch. 42 comes in pretty well out here in SW Lancaster Co..

Yes, Obama was arranging his crowds so he would be surrounded by white people. It's part of that post-racial thang.

While the crowd was indeed diverse, some students at the event questioned the practices of Mrs. Obama’s event coordinators, who handpicked the crowd sitting behind Mrs. Obama. The Tartan’s correspondents observed one event coordinator say to another, “Get me more white people, we need more white people.” To an Asian girl sitting in the back row, one coordinator said, “We’re moving you, sorry. It’s going to look so pretty, though.”

“I didn’t know they would say, ‘We need a white person here,’ ” said attendee and senior psychology major Shayna Watson, who sat in the crowd behind Mrs. Obama. “I understood they would want a show of diversity, but to pick up people and to reseat them, I didn’t know it would be so outright.”

In the something like 2,000+ delegates at the RNC, only 36 were African American. Interesting how the tv cameras kept focusing on those few.
