Walking small: Mike Ross

Posted By on Wed, Jan 5, 2011 at 1:25 PM

John Boehner was elected House speaker today, as expected, as the Republican majority took over.

The vote, 241-173 over Nancy Pelosi. Oh, and then there were the blue curs, 11 of them including Mike Ross, who voted for Tennessee's North Carolina's Heath Shuler. (I had football on the brain.) A handful of votes were scattered among others.

The Arkansas Republicans went with the man with the tan.

When it comes to courage, eloquence, results and service of constituents, Mike Ross couldn't carry Nancy Pelosi's purse.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County).
