U.S. Senate race fatigue

DAY ONE: Tom Cotton announced just yesterday. Already, the race grows wearisome.
  • DAY ONE: Tom Cotton announced just yesterday. Already, the race grows wearisome.
I'm already tired of the U.S. Senate race, only officially a day old.

Republican noise machine: Democrat liberal Sen. Mark Pryor said something nice about Obamacare .... Obama ... Obamacare ... Obama

Democratic noise machine: Republican Rep. Tom Cotton wants to cut Medicare .... to privatize Social Security ... to make student loans expensive .... to block the farm bill ... to cut food stamps .... to restrict women's rights.

I grant you the Democratic recitation is more persuasive.

But gee whiz. It's FIFTEEN months until the election.

Already it's in overdrive.

But I'd be remiss if I didn't pass along that Sen. Pryor will be in Little Rock Thursday.

At 8 a.m., Pryor will join the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce "to discuss his efforts to help Arkansas small businesses." 1200 W. Capitol if you want to picket.

At 10 a.m., Pryor will speak at the Remington Ammunition Plant groundbreaking ceremony. 2592 Highway 15, Lonoke, if you want to picket. But careful. These folks are armed. (If Sen. Pryor doesn't find an occasion to heft a firearm at this event, with cameras rolling, his whole campaign staff should be fired.)

  • 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.
