The humpday open line

*ARKANSAS BUSINESS APOLOGIZES FOR PUBLISHING CONCEALED CARRY LIST: Score one for the gun nuts. They sufficiently harassed Arkansas Business editor Gwen Moritz, who published a link to one of the last available version of the list of registered concealed carry permit holders on Monday, into offering a long mea culpa.

*MO MONEY FOR COTTON: U.S. Speaker John Boehner is fundraising for Rep. Tom Cotton tonight in D.C., Roll Call reports. Gotta build up that war chest to take on Pryor.

*LIVE FROM THE INSURANCE EXCHANGE HEARING: A day after the game-changing news that the federal government is willing to put federal Medicaid dollars into the health exchange, some guy from FreedomWorks says that's just another sign we should hold out for a better deal. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
