Post political speculation here

Posted By on Mon, Jan 25, 2010 at 9:17 AM

I'm guessing lots will be jumping today, most of it speculative, about the domino theory of major political moves that have occurred -- Snyder and Berry retirements -- or are expected to occur (Boozman entry in Senate race).

How about a growing roundup here?

For example: A Paul Suskie for Congress (2nd) Facebook page.

Also: In a statement thanking Marion Berry for his service, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel made it clear he's running for re-election, not for Berry's congressional seat. Why get caught up in national politics when you can avoid big issues, be re-elected easily and bide time for a 2014 gubernatorial run?

Also, 1st Dist. GOP division: Sen. Johnny Key is asking Facebook friends to join his prayers for God's guidance on "an important decision." (I thought God voted in the Third District, not the First.) Davy Carter is also up on Facebook, but not praying yet.

Also, from the Capitol on the Democratic side in the 1st District comes word that former state Rep. Chris Thyer is definitely in. (He will not win the Mr. Congeniality award, bank on that.) Sen. Robert Thompson is looking. Reader here says former Sen. Tim Wooldridge might get in. And, yes, Jason Willett is Facebooking re an exploratory committee.

Joe the Plumber is in town for Conrad Reynolds (GOP Senate). Who gives a ****? Send in the clowns.

Add your own.
