Joe Jordan is reporting on the Nebraska Watchdog about the fight between Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle and state Senator, and Congressional candidate, Tom White.
The squabble is essentially over White's efforts in the legislature to change how Omaha may or may not be taxed over the sewer separation project. White wants to exempt Omahans from a sales tax increase, but Suttle says it will turn into a property tax increase.
Frankly, we're not sure who may be right or wrong in this argument -- we just find it hilarious that these two political Einsteins have decided to take their fight out into the public, sending letters at each other.
Really? Two of the eleven or twelve Democrats in the state can't have a, oh we don't know...phone call?!
What a whacky idea it would be for the Democrat state Senator to coordinate with the Democrat Mayor of the City his legislation affects.
But even if Suttle does disagree with him, calling him a "liar"?
Really? Why not just a neo-maxi-zoon-dweeby, or whatever it is the kids are texting at each other these days?
What is even more laugh-out-loud worthy in this episode, was Tweeted-out by GOP Chair Mark Fahleson in that Suttle wrote what White was saying is a "bold-faced lie".
Um, Jim (or is it Ron Penzkowski in this situation), the term is "bald-faced lie".
When you say "bold-faced" you sound like a neo-maxi-zoon-dweeby.
In any case, look for Suttle to trip White in the cafeteria, and for White to potentially throw his orange-drink at Suttle.
Oh, and see you all by the flag-pole after school.
