Latest GOP attorney general ad touches all the base's bases

The newest TV ad from Republican Leslie Rutledge, a candidate for attorney general, touches all the bases. She's a "Christian, pro-life, gun-carryin', conservative woman" and she'll fight the "liberal agenda" of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare.

A topper for the shadowy outfit pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into TV ads touting opponent David Sterling's advocacy of a kill-the-witness (stand your ground) law? A distinction without a difference.

Time to promise to push for a resumption of the death penalty and to promise to personally push the plunger on the syringe, flip the switch on Ol' Sparky, drop the cyanide cannister, drop the trap door on the gallows, fire the live bullet or unleash the guillotine the first time there's an opportunity.

Democrat Nate Steel sounds better all the time.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
