A Portent Of Things To Come?

by Brad Warbiany

Apparently, Ben Nelson can’t go for pizza any more:

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson’s decisive vote in favor of the Senate’s health care bill.

Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, “Get him the hell out of here!” And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.

“It was definitely a scene in there,” said Tom Lewis, a 41-year-old dentist and registered Republican who witnessed the incident. A second witness confirmed the incident to POLITICO.

Now it’s time for me to go back to work on reminding Americans why there are 99 other Senators deserving this treatment.

  1. Dear Brad,

    My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.

    I’m contacting you because I found your site in a prominent political and health care site search and want to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of health care. Our shared concerns include health reform, public health, safe workplaces, and asbestos contamination.

    To increase awareness on these important issues, my goal is to get a resource link on your site or even allow me to provide a guest posting. Please contact me back, I hope to hear from you soon.

    Sincerely,

    Barbara O’ Brien

  2. Hey Barbara, I am a bit familiar with your work. I believe you called me a “meathead” and a “troll”. I assume you call people such things often, which is why you seem to have not remembered doing so.

    While I too am concerned about health reform, public health, and safe workplaces, I am quite sure that we will have wildly different prescriptions to cure what’s currently wrong.

    I would wish you luck in your quest, but I cannot do so because for you to acheive your goals would necessarily reduce my freedom. So instead, I will simply wish you happiness and health, and hope that someday you see the error of your ways.

    At least I won’t call you a troll.
