Over/under on number of times Tom Cotton says "Obama" in tonight's debate with Mark Pryor?

Posted By on Tue, Oct 14, 2014 at 4:08 PM


Rep. Tom Cotton will face off with Sen. Mark Pryor in Fayetteville tonight for a one on one debate. We'll be covering it here on the blog, but the big question: can Cotton top the 74 times he said "Obama" during yesterday's debate?

Given the one-on-one format, I say yes. I'm placing the over-under at 100. Make your bets. 

The Pryor campaign had a little fun making the video above. 

p.s. Yes, I understand this is a campaign strategy and that Cotton, a disciplined politician, believes that saying Obama as many times as possible is a winner. However, is it possible to sound like a human being speaking English to other human beings is you say the same word every ten seconds? No. No, it is not.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
