On Tuesday Don Stenberg was in Alliance addressing the local Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs at a Mexican restaurant. After Stenberg laid out his plans to deal with illegal immigration (which is Romney’s “self-deportation” plan), someone in the room cracked a joke about how they wouldn’t have their waiters if there was a crackdown on employers. Stenberg found it hilarious. It’d hardly be possible for him to wear a wider grin. And thanks to American Bridge 21st Century, the rest of Nebraska can have a look at the treasurer’s distasteful sense of humor.

If only this could be considered an isolated incident. But given Bruning’s own proclivity for unapologetically loosing charged statements, it seems like the GOP Senate field must view these sorts of incidents as assets rather than problems, and shows just how out of touch they are with most Nebraskans.
