Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson, reporting from beleaguered Sderot, Israel, accuses Iran of causing trouble in the region. Not a stretch, since Iran has been supplying the terror rockets the Palestinians have been shooting at Israel. Our man managed to touch an Iranian nerve.
Ben has been at loose ends lately, unable to work up any genuine enthusiasm for Barack Obama's stretch-to-fit platform. Seems Senator Nelson has gone back to what he does best, being a maverick Democrat.
Now if he can just quit flogging ethanol. The damage is already done. Ethanol hasn't helped our energy costs and has wrought havoc on food prices.
