How low will Booz go?

Posted By on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 at 9:10 AM

Rep. John Boozman is in the field polling, apparently, and if it's not a "push poll" -- aimed at influencing voters more than sampling public opinion -- it bears a resemblance.

It would appear Boozman has some fears about Sen. Gilbert Baker, given the questions about Baker's record (including the occasionally laudable vote for state financial support of critical public services.)

The poll also asks if voters knew that Gilbert Baker was .....

BORN IN LOUISIANA!

To which another Louisiana-born, but longer-time Arkie says:

Yeah, John, and what's it to you?

Silly. Boozman hasn't given a thought to how many of the residents in Republicanville came from other states for jobs at Wal-Mart (founded by an Oklahoman), etc.

PS -- One recipient of the poll call reports that the questioner repeatedly mispronounced Boozman's name. Maybe she was from Louisiana.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
