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.
