Mike Ross: Poetic justice?

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 4:18 PM

A Republican political consulting firm has a poll that it claims shows Republican 4th District candidate Beth Anne Rankin closing to within 3 points, or virtually a dead heat, with incumbent U.S. Rep. Mike Ross.

Perhaps those polled have decided that if their choice is to be a Republican versus a Republican on every important issue of the day — from health care on down — they might as well vote for the certified one.

The lower the interest in the race held by those polled, the more likely they were to vote for Mike Ross. Perhaps he ought to give those voters a reason to get excited. Such as tax cuts for the poor, not the rich; universal health care; a broader stimulus package to bring work to the unemployed of South Arkansas; human rights for all. Mike Ross might really need those 5 percent leaning Green according to the poll. But he's long told them to go straight to hell. Payback can be a bitch.

  • 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.
