Here's An Idea: How To Treat Our Condescending Senator

Gotta love these folks.

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.

Good thing there was no tar-pot nearby, eh?

Where does Rusty Feingold eat?

I wish I could offer speculation on where Russ eats when in Madison. It's not routinely discussed. He strikes me as a Lombardino's sort of guy. It's dark, easy to hide. L'Etoile, perhaps. But admittedly just clutching at straws here.

Can't speak to his culinary haunts, but having seen Russ just yesterday, I can confidently tell you that I believe he's taking wardrobe tips from the senior senator for Wisconsin. Possibly shopping at the same stores; buying shirts at Eddie Bauer and poly-blend trousers at Sears. Interesting combination.

And the shoes... yikes. Cheap shoes are a crime. You know Russ is in the room from the squeaking. For Feingold's sake, I hope it was an act.
