Despite the fact that most of the white men I know (in person and not in the virtual reality playground of Facebook) voted Democratic, whether they had college degrees or not, it almost seemed as though the Democratic Party and political pundits alike often seemed to lump them all together as solidly in the Trump camp.
2016: What we didn’t hear during this presidential election Now that the debates are over, and the election season is finally winding down, I have asked a number of folks to weigh in on what they felt was not addressed this year.

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.
