Strange bedfellows

Posted By on Wed, Sep 13, 2006 at 3:16 PM

Daily Kos, the Arkansas Blog and Jackson T. Stephens, major benefactor of the Club for Growth united? Hard to believe. But that's what Kos suggests (even if he didn't mention us) in assessing primaries yesterday and again repeating his belief that The Huckster could be Da Man for Repubs, and a dangerous candidate for Dems.

  • Um. Where are the stories about how useless and irrelevant the Club for Growth is? They are not, of course. They have pulled off some upsets this primary season, with some of those victors so wingnutty that they may even help us pick up a couple of unexpected seats.


    The Club for Growth will have another important use for us -- they have an almost irrational hate for Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and are going to mobilize to try and thwart his presidential ambitions. This is good, since I fear Huckabee more than I fear anyone in the potential GOP field. The more help we have knocking him down a notch or three, the better.

    • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

      It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.

Jason Rapert. Rapert is perturbed.

      So it goes. The Satanic Temple unveils its statue for a rally in support of the First Amendment protection against state establishment of religion.
