Calling all 16 percenters -- UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2007 at 5:55 AM

Dick Cheney is coming to Arkansas Nov. 16. Details not announced. And probably won't be until the hand-picked audience is seated in a fortified bunker with a broad security cordon.

GOP Chair Dennis "What we need is another 9/11" Milligan says the visit is a sign Arkansas is pivotal and winnable in 2008. Nah, if that was true, the last thing you'd do is send Cheney.

UPDATE: War protesters, make plans now. The event will be a luncheon at the Women's City Club (now the Junior League building). You'll have to pay $250 a plate to get inside. My tipster gives a 10:30 a.m. start, presumably to get everybody inside the security bubble and fully frisked before Darth arrives.
