I have come to the conclusion that the Associated Press hates Nebraska. They publish embarrassing stories like this about us just to make us look bad to the rest of the country and the world.
Why would the AP do this? Because Nebraska's pervasive conservatism irks Ed Howard at their Nebraska bureau. Ed is a 60's throwback, an anti-war, Bush-hating leftist Dan Rather wannabe. If you have a doubt, just read Statepaper.com, largely Ed's product. Ed doesn't like being stationed in the heart of red-state Nebraska.
