Rosy time for Republicans

Posted By on Sun, Sep 12, 2010 at 8:07 AM

Brummett's current assessment of political fortunes are nearly all good for Republicans (well, not Jim Keet.) For example, he gives a thumbs-up to the Republican Party because:

They’ll go from a 1-5 deficit in the state’s congressional delegation to a 4-2 advantage or at least a 3-3 tie. They’ll gain enough state legislative seats to block appropriations and make a mess of Beebe’s second term. A two-party system will come to Arkansas just in time to be more a matter of dysfunction than honest debate.

PS — I think, however, the GOP is about to have to endure yet another in their perennial controversies about internal financial funny business. More on that later.

  • 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.
