PRAISE THE LORD: But pass me the tax money.
  • PRAISE THE LORD: But pass me the tax money.


We've written before
about Rep.

Seems like the least Harris could do is add an asterisk and "Arkansas taxpayers" to that thanks to God for the ABC summer funding.

Democrats made gains in governorships and legislatures, too. But then, there's Arkansas:
