Re: “Donald Trump threatens to shut down his own government if he doesn't get taxpayer funding for wall

Reminds me of Sheriff Bart (Cleavon Little) in "Blazing Saddles": points his own gun at his own head and threatens "next man makes a move, the (country) gets it!"

Re: “Arkansas death penalty FAQ

We'll see if the killings will commence on April 20 -- the birthday of Reichwingers' hero, Adolf Hitler.

No sense of history, Republicans?

Re: “Tom Cotton's Obamacare repeal dance

Amazing how a stint at Harvard can screw with your brain. Cotton should demand his tuition back (and maybe take a cue from Obama's stellar Harvard-fueled career to see where he may have gone wrong).

Re: “Drug supplier McKesson refiles lawsuit to keep state from using one execution drug

Good for the drug wholesaler! Of COURSE they'll suffer major reputational damage if their product is used to kill instead of healing. Hope they get justice.

Re: “BREAKING: 8th Circuit lifts stay of executions

Ahh, Leslie. We all know this little episode, but just to refresh, here's what the Arkansas Democrat (ha!) Gazette wrote in 2014, and Rachel Maddow dug up again: "Leslie Rutledge, who faces Democrat Rep. Nate Steel, abruptly left her job in late 2007 after 14 months as a child welfare attorney for the Department of Human Service to join Gov. Mike Huckabees 2008 presidential campaign.

After her resignation, DHS officials placed Rutledge on the do not rehire list due to what they classified as gross misconduct, but DHS officials have not said why Rutledge was barred from ever returning to the agency."
