How 'bout an open line?

But first...

Just in: The House passes Boehner's plan 218-210; now on to its death in the Senate. UPDATE: Done.

*"A SPENDING ADDICTION": CNN tweaks Rep. Tim Griffin and other Republicans who've adopted a hardline on debt talks, while carrying significant personal debts of their own. According to disclosure forms released in June, Griffin had racked up at least $15,000 in credit card debt on his American Express.

*ARKANSAS REPUBLICANS ARE ON A ROLL: Check out this pic from the Sharp County Republican's booth at the Sharp County Fair that a reporter from Mt. Ida sent in to Rachel Maddow's blog.

*FOOD NEWS: Have you been to Eat Arkansas lately? If not, mosey on over to see items on Chipotle in West Little Rock and Redbone's Downtown, a new Cajun/Southern restaurant soon-to-open in the River Market.

*PODCAST: Sorry again. We were more shorthanded than usual today. We'll shoot to return next week. In the meantime, catch Gerard on "Arkansas Week."
