Nebraska Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse wants to move the nation's Capitol to his home state, though he hasn't picked a capital city.
It's a spoof, of course, but a well-produced spoof that is catching the attention of the Internet crowd.
Casting himself as a Washington, D.C., outsider not beholden to insider political pressure, Sasse suggests in the 5-minute video moving the Capitol -- the actual building -- using what appears to be a super-sized big rig and trailer. Doing that, he says, would insulate lawmakers from the specials interests and powerful lobbyists inside the Beltway while giving the political class a taste of the Cornhusker State's conservative values.
"That's it, the way to cure the incredible ineffectiveness and dysfunction of both parties in Washington -- we move the Capitol to Nebraska," the GOP candidate said.
