Adding Insult (Literally) to Injury

Senator Ben Nelson clearly needs to brush up on his Dale Carnegie. Nebraska citizens held a rally over the weekend to protest Nelson's decision to vote for Obamacare.

David Madsen of Nebraska City and his wife, Diane, told AP they felt betrayed by Nelson, whom they had counted on as pro-life.

"I will actively be involved in my own community to lead the fight against Ben Nelson," Madsen said.

Nelson, himself, condemned the rally.

"This is all orchestrated," Nelson said Sunday. "It's so thinly disguised ... it's almost laughable."

Keep laughing, Ben. If there's one thing voters love, it's politicians who show contempt for the opinions of citizens. I'm sure it was just astroturfing strategies that convinced a couple thousand of your constituents to show their discontent with your vote.

Nelson is clearly feeling the heat, because this weekend on CNN he tried to claim that he worked with Nebraska's governor in crafting this compromise. Turns out that's not entirely accurate.

I think Heineman just made the short list of potential 2012 opponents for Nelson.
