  • BETTER NUMBERS: In new poll for Sen. Mark Pryor.
Politico has published a round of polling in key U.S. Senate races, including Republican extremist Tom Cotton's challenge of incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor.

Polling was done by Harper Polling for the Republican super PAC, American Crossroads. It's better for Pryor than the recent Talk Business-Hendrix College poll that showed Pryor ahead 42-41, but with a 34-48 approve/disapprove rating.

The Republican poll shows Pryor leading 45-42, with 13 percent undecided.

It is sharply better in the approval rating category.

On general feelings, the respondents rated Pryor 46-37-13 (favorable/unfavorable/unsure). Cotton polled at 37-26-37.

Job performance:

Pryor finished 45-40-15 (approve/disapprove/unsure).

The sample disagreed, 47-45, with the notion that things were so bad in Washington everyone should be thrown out.

The polls also showed Democratic incumbents leading narrowly in Alaska and Louisiana, but a Republican leading for an open West Virginia seat now held by a Democrat.

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
