The vote hunter

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 10:35 AM

A$a’s campaign announced today that Gov. Huckabee would sponsor a fund-raiser for the Republican gubernatorial candidate Sept. 29 preceding the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet at the Peabody Hotel. Nice of Huckabee to take a break from campaigning for candidates in Iowa and South Carolina to help out an Arkie. Maybe it will be an opportunity for A$a! to ask him, please, stop talking in front of reporters about the “lousy job” the Bush administration’s Homeland Security Department has done on border security. You may remember that Huckabee’s would-be successor used to be in charge of, well, border security.

Confidential to DK: Man, if you want to wrap A$a in the flags of the NRA, the hooks-and-bullets crowd and the antelope-slaying Huckster, finish the job. Send us a photo of A$a with some dead animal he’s slain recently. I bet Mike! has one. In fact, we welcome trophy shots here from all candidates. (You, too, Rod and Jim.) Though we confess a preference for monster watermelons, squash shaped like Richard Nixon's head and tortillas imprinted with the image of Jesus.

UPDATE: Seek and ye shall find. No dead critter available, but the campaign provides us a shot of A$a! well-armed and camoed on the trail of warm-blooded prey. Top that, Mike!

    A followup to Rebekah Hall's earlier report on Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr.'s announcement that cuts will be necessary in the city budget in part to pay for "priorities," such as his desire to expand the police force, but also to deal with the reality often mentioned here of stagnant to decling city sales tax revenue. Some quick ideas on that:
