The home stretch

Posted By on Sat, Oct 21, 2006 at 8:17 AM

Well, folks ... this is your Arkansas governor's race.

Two-and-a-half weeks until Election Day, and political opinion columns probe:

1.) An imaginary debate between Mike Beebe and Asa Hutchinson that degenerates into name calling.

Hutchinson: Well, was that really your dog?

Beebe: Hey, did you smoke that weed after you pulled it up?

2.) An examination of where Beebe and Hutchinson stand on the World Series.

Asked Friday to disclose which team he was pulling for in the series, Beebe replied: "St. Louis is my team in the National League. Detroit is my team in the American League. Either way, my team wins."

David Kinkade, spokesman for GOP nominee Asa Hutchinson, released this statement: "Asa and Mr. Beebe have any number of differences on the issues, but this may be one of the most fundamental disagreements in the campaign: Asa is a lifelong, die-hard Cardinals man, period."
