One last bit on the matter of Jim House before it becomes a dead horse

Posted By on Mon, Jun 11, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Kudos to both the Northwest Arkansas Times and Brenda Blagg, for writing about the fiasco the Washington County Democratic Party faces, due to Jim House, who dropped out of the race for Quorum Court so his friend Republican Butch Pond would have no competition in November.

House says that Pond listens to both sides before making a decision.

Oh, really?

And how often has Comrade Pond voted in a manner a Democratic member of his district might feel pleased with, especially where it comes to property rights or environmental issues?

More importantly, would Jim House have voted in exactly the same manner?

Or does he even know what Butch Pond may or may not have voted on?

Because I'd be willing to bet that quite a few people in Pond’s district are more than well aware of his voting record.

I was in analysis. I was suicidal. As a matter of fact, I would have killed myself, but I was in analysis with a strict Freudian and if you kill yourself they make you pay for the sessions you miss. - Woody Allen
