Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

Biggest joke as AG since Bruce Bennett, of whom:

Both [Bennett's rival James] Johnson in 1956 and Bennett in 1960 accused Faubus of being less than committed to racial segregation, even depicting him as a tool of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and its leader, Daisy Bates. Bennett ran a surprisingly distant third in the primary behind Faubus and the moderate Joe Hardin, a former Arkansas Farm Bureau president.[1][3]

In 1958, Bennett authored a series of bills designed to limit the activities civil rights protestors, whom he considered "the enemies of America.[1] The bills sought to prevent the NAACP from providing legal counsel or funding lawsuits in Arkansas. Bennett tried to force the NAACP to release its membership list and personnel records to the state, a position struck down in 1958 by the United States Supreme Court in a related case, NAACP v. Alabama. Bennett also procured legislation to prohibit NAACP members from becoming Arkansas state employees. He associated the NAACP with an "international communist conspiracy" and presented such testimony before legislative bodies in Arkansas and Tennessee.[1][4]

Re: “Sen. Tom Cotton: Don't ask him about health care

Dimplasm is right. We ALREADY know where Ambitious Tommy stands on pretty much everything. That would be under the table wagging his tail and waiting for Master Trump to toss him a food scrap and tell him what to say about all those consarned investigations.

All the tech park news in the world can't overcome LR's increasing reputation as a Wild West gun smoke city.

Re: “Q&A with John Boozman on the secret health care bill. Translation: Mush

Put a nickel in his bellybutton and he'll recite the McConnell/Ryan talking points verbatim for as long as you keep plugging the nickels in the slot.
