    The Arkansas Republican Party unloads on Gov. Mike Beebe for pushing to have his "crony" Shane Broadway elevated to director of the state Higher Education Department when he lacks qualifications specified by state law for the job.

Re: “We're over the hump

Meanwhile, the President's budget which truly ends Medicare as we know it (by completely ignoring the recommendations of his own bipartisan commission) fails in the Senate, 97-O.

Re: “Ryan's individual mandate

Nice try.

ObamaCare mandates you purchase insurance upon pain of financial penalty (and, despite clever arguments to the contrary, a specific tax for not buying insurance is a penalty) with the potential for incarceration.

This penalty is unprecedented in our nation's history and that is why it has been declared unconstitutional in federal court.

When you can show me the Ryan plan does the same, then you have an argument. Until then, all you are just spouting liberal lies.

Then again, that is pretty much par for the course in these parts.

Re: “Tim Griffin: His town halls are screened


I think Max needs to note that he edited his original post.

Re: “Tim Griffin: His town halls are screened


I've called Mike Ross' tele town halls as well and have been screened. All questions are screened - how else would they know who they're talking to?

I also participated in Obama's Facebook town hall. Imagine my surprise when all the questions came from Facebook staff instead of from us.

You also write that "candidates' supporter lists" were used. I believe last night's call was made by Rep. Griffin's office, which means that the only "lists" they have are of constituents (I don't know if my phone number is registered R, D, G or I).

I'm glad you availed yourself of yet another opportunity to snark. I hope you will use the same terminology to attack Rep. Ross the next time he holds a tele town hall.

As far as a "live" town hall, I was at his Shannon Hills one. Where were you?

Re: “The Sunday line

Wow, Max. Critical of someone who cleans up his personal Facebook page and invites those who bitch to go to his campaign or government pages?

Heavy journalism.

Tell you what. I've just made a friend request to your Facebook page. If you don't accept or kill my account here on the blog, then you are nothing but a BHD.

Your term, Maxie. Not mine.
