With apologies to our good friend Kyle, this was just too good to pass up.
Our nemeses over at the Leavenworth Street blog dug up the oft-rumored liberal columns a young Jon Bruning wrote for the Daily Nebraskan back in 1992-1993. This particular article they found was entitled, “Conservatives, Come Out of the Closet.” Ironic, to say the least.
A commenter named “Eric” researched the articles, and found some more quotes, but this observation just about made me fall over laughing:
I can understand people having evolving views over a decade or so, but this much is a little hard to swallow. Can you imagine Kyle Michaelis 15 years from now launching a primary challenge from the right of the most conservative member of the Senate? (yeah, yeah, I know – you don’t think Hagel is conservative – whatever).
So now we know. The New Nebraska Network is just Kyle’s diabolical plot to become a Republican Senator in 2024. I think he’ll have to do some explaining about that whole Nebraska Young Democrats thing, though
