Do his constituents know?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2008 at 4:31 PM

.... that state Rep. Jon Woods, the Springdale Republican and scourge of immigrants, gays, women seeking abortions, etc., plays in a pop-punk rock band? A band that even a liberal Democrat of my acquaintance says is pretty good?

He's hitting national TV this week. I'd been trying to run the details down, but The Arkansas Project got the job done. MTV, 1 p.m. Sunday. And a Little Rock club date next weekend. Go, by all means. Just don't sign any anti-gay-adoption petitions.

Want to hear some tunes from "A Good Fight"? Here's their MySpace page.

Want some yuks? Remember when Woods was floating the idea that local Hispanic ganglords were earning a little extra money by doing wacks-for-hire around the country? Gang colors presumably will not be allowed at the coming Sticky Fingerz show.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
