  • WHO COULD FORGET? Bobby Jindal was widely panned for his Republican response to a presidential address. Now he's bringing his act to Arkansas.
Politico reports that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is coming to Fort Smith tonight to help raise money for another like-minded extremist, Republican Tom Cotton, the U.S. Senate candidate. Jindal has formed a PAC so he can travel and raise money for other candidates to build a network for his own hoped-for rise back into presidential contention.

Better that Jindal come to Arkansas than Cotton fly down to Baton Rouge.

This article notes that polling shows Jindal is among ther most unpopular governors in the United States.  He's so unpopular he has poorer numbers than a would-be successor, David Vitter, once reported to have a penchant for wearing diapers when having flings with high-dollar New Orleans prostitutes.

Jindal will join Cotton's statement today cheering a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows a private company to deny coverage of birth control pills in group health insurance plans. "Religious freedom" is more important to them than women's medical care.

  • 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.
