    Don't forget that Al Gore hung out with Clinton for eight years and still managed to lose. Pryor and Ross' fates are probably somewhat dependent on what Obama does over the course of the summer on some key issues.

    I seem to recall a Hutchinson commercial in which he wants computer science programs in all high schools. Isn't high school a little late. Or is he going to state motto to "Better late than never?"

    If Jon says it long enough and passionately enough, eventually it will become true. This is the magic of propaganda. Brumet is the Grey Wizard. Nice distortion spell, Jon.

    In the summer of 2006 even in rural Arkansas people were beginning to realize that they had been had by G,O,P.Fox fear,hysteria and lies about weapons of mass destruction.What if by the summer of 2014 they began to realize they have been had by G.O.P. Fox fear ,hysteria and lies about the A.C.A. ? J.B. you forgot young Toms Gomer Pyle ad with sergeant Norton what was the name of Gomers sergeant? How does young Tom stay so clean working in a cow lot even if he just sits on a pick up tale gate being windy?

    DDDKA and NUN -- you guys are pretty easily offended. "He has two very charming, engaging parents -- apparently -- but there are only two of them." I've never heard anybody on your side say anything even close to being that nice about the Obama family. Cotton is a cold mean fish. It happens in the best of families. He is the perfect tool for the Koch brothers.

    Uhh, yeah sure, you changed the quote. So what is your point? As written by Brummett, it was a classless dig. And that isn't being offended, that's pointing out it was a classless dig. As far as sides, what side am I on, exactly?

    Everyone who is getting healthcare for the first time along with those that will be on Medicare in the future should not want Tom Cotton. It is sicking to see how he is playing up his soldier service, since when was being a good soldier qualifications for a political office? I am not downing military service or his service, it is just so in your face in every ad he runs with no suggestion as to how to front the issues we have in this country and state. Arkansas you can do a lot better than picking Cotton.
