A shot for Dem in the 3rd?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 2, 2010 at 9:05 AM

Roby Brock summarizes the nasty tit-for-tatting in the Republican runoff for 3rd District Congress, which hit its lowest ebb yesterday when a media man for Steve Womack characterized opponent Cecile Bledsoe as a desperate, "aging woman." Expect a gender gap from that crack.

But much as I wish it were so, I think Roby's high-minded analysis is a wish too lofty for the 3rd, home to Boozmans, Holts, Martins and even worse:

Here at Talk Business, we understand the need for businesses to protect themselves.  We understand the need for politicians to score political points.  We also understand the need for voters to know who is going to represent them in Congress with maturity. Based on the latest actions from this Republican run-off (and the plethora of playground antics throughout this primary), Democrat David Whitaker may have a legitimate shot in November despite the overwhelming Republican tilt of this district.

    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.
