The Thursday line

Posted By on Thu, Jun 30, 2011 at 4:40 PM

It's open. Close-outs:

* MICHELE BACHMANN: Nice roundup of five top gaffes. The list will grow.

* REPUBLICAN WITCH HUNT: KUAR followed up on our report yesterday about Republicans' enormous FOI request to the UALR Law School that the GOP hadn't even bothered to pick up. It was a fishing expedition to see if librarian Jeff Woodmansee had done any political blogging on state time.

The school's dean, John DiPippa, says there was no evidence of political activity during work.

"We produced about 6600 pages for this," DiPippa said. "I didn't see any evidence of any wrongdoing by Jeff Woodmansee, our employee."

* DICK HALPERIN: Oh, sorry, his name is Mark Halperin. HE called President Obama by former VP Cheney's first name on national TV. Useful memory from Eschaton, who thinks Halperin should be known as 'fucktard.'

* LATE NIGHT IN THE RIVER MARKET: Juanita's, freshly moved from its original home on Main Street to a River Market space, is seeking approval to operate as an after-hours club. Rock Candy has the news. I'm thinking this will stir some conversation from many people, not all of it positive.

* SICK F***: Tea Party leader says anti-gay bullying is just "healthy peer pressure." Says reports of disproportionate bullying of gay kids and high suicide rates just a way to promote "gay agenda."

  • 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.
