We're done

What are you up to? Consider this an open line.

* UPDATE: CALL FOR BLANCHE LINCOLN IN THE LOBBY: Former Sen. Blanche Lincoln is heading to the K Street lobbying ranks. Oh, sorry. Consulting ranks. Can't lobby just yet, I don't think. Ag committee staff director Robert Holifield also will be joining her at Alston & Bird. It's a law firm. Lincoln is not a lawyer. But she presumably can serve other useful purposes with former congressional contacts. Ka-ching!

* LR SUPERINTENDENT MEETS THE PRESS: Morris Holmes, newly chosen as the permanent Little Rock School superintendent, met reporters today and sounds like he struck all the right notes. Words and deeds.

* MAKE 'EM LAUGH; BUT NOT AT YOU: An AWFUL lot of commentary on Mike Huckabee's Ted Nugent lead-in to his televised presidential departure. Does he listen to lyrics (about purring pussies) when plucking that bass? Stephen Colbert, once a Huckabee enabler, certainly noticed. And, though it's been mentioned already, I think a full video of Jon Stewart comparing the pussy purring on Huckabee's show with Fox's faux outrage over a rapper is worth another run here tonight.

    The New York Times reports that some Republicans are trending away from the lock-em-up-and-throw-away-the-key approach to criminal justice embraced by the party's old guard, in part out of a recognition that minority votes matter now more than ever.

  • Here's to Hutchinson, McCain and American revulsion at torture

    On Nov. 16, 1776, Gen. George Washington stood on the Jersey Palisades and peered across the Hudson River through his telescope as the British tortured American militiamen who had surrendered and then put them to the sword. Hearing the screams of his men, according to an aide, Washington turned and sobbed "with the tenderness of a child."
  • Easy on the pay raises

    An independent commission appointed by the governor, legislative leaders and the chief justice began work last week to fulfill part of Issue 3, the constitutional amendment that eased term limits, banned lobbyist gifts to legislators (sort of) and provided a mechanism for pay raises.
