He’d like something named after him, but there’s already a Dover Air Force Base (UPDATED)

What’s next for Ben Nelson?

~Replace John Hodgman in Apple’s “I’m a Mac” ad campaign; get fired for showing up to shoots dressed in hipster signifiers & agreeing vigorously with Justin Long

~Join PepsiCo Board of Directors, buy world a Coke

~Sell arms to anti-American forces abroad, cite decades-long experience providing ammo to the other side

~Become lobbyist; spend most of his time hanging out at service entrance, because he always does the opposite of what he’s supposed to be doing, see

~Attempt to take down IRS from the inside; unaware that IRS Records and Internal Revenue Service are not the same thing, record surprisingly competent rock/reggae fusion album

~Get job as Wal-Mart greeter, invoke “conscience clause” to avoid saying hello to potential sluts

~Find a way to look even more like Jerry Van Dyke

~Whenever there’s a patch of freshly laid, unhardened cement nearby, “tag” it with side of head, because the dude just loves earmarks

~Belatedly realize “Ask Ben Nelson To Resign” Facebook campaign was most likely started by liberals, run for Senate

~Spend more time undermining his family
