Here Are Some Things That Are Going On
Man, is it ever cold outside….
(How cold is it, Dave?).
It’s so cold, I went to check the reading on the porch thermometer and I thought I was looking at Blanche Lincoln’s approval ratings! (Heyy-OOOOH!)
Anyway, here’s some political stuff that’s been going down this week that I wanted to note. Maybe you saw some of this scattered around the Arkansas blogosphere the last few days, or maybe you missed it, what the hell do I care what you do with your time:
- Former state Sen. Jim Holt announced that he would indeed enter the GOP primary in the U.S. Senate race to challenge the embattled Lincoln. He even filed paperwork and everything. The Washington Post says it’s one of the top 10 primary races in the country, but they also once ranked The Arkansas Project as a “Top Political Blog,” so who cares what those hacks say.
- GOP state Rep. Mark Martin says he will indeed make a run for secretary of state. Several Democrats have announced for the seat already.
- Republican Mark Darr made his candidacy for lieutenant governor official, and GOP Rep. Roy Ragland said he might just maybe enter the race, too, maybe.
And on Sunday, you’ll want to be sure you’re sitting by your wireless radio at 8 a.m., when I’ll be sitting in as the time filler special guest on Arkansas Sunday Edition with Blake Rutherford of Blake’s Think Tank, on 103.7 The Buzz in Little Rock. I know what you’re thinking: How on earth did Blake land the coveted 7-9 a.m. Sunday morning radio slot? I don’t know, man, he’s just got way more pull than we do.
We’ll probably be blathering on about politics, naturally, and, oh, I don’t know, how much Blake loved “Avatar,” probably. Christ, what a f**kin’ nightmare it will be.

I was becoming VERY worried about you, dave.
I read your blog via bloglines and lately your post are unreadable. It looks like they are trunkaded. sorry for the bad news
With such jokes as you opened this post with, no doubt NBC is thinking of utilizing your talents in a triumvirate of late night humorists, the Leno/Kinkade/O’Brian Show. Probably somewhere in the 1:00 – 1:30 AM time slot. I recommend Fourche River Rex as your personal writer. Between the two of you, no telling what little gems will ooze out.
You are generally a bad person, Kinkade.
I never did like DK either. I am glad you guys brought it up so I did not have to. Just horrible.
Mark Martin is a joke. Besides suffering from being bipolar he couldnt raise $100k if his life depended on it.
Big Blue, we are bad mouthing KINKADE. Get with the program.
Yeah, we love Mark Martin or anyone else with a NASCAR name.
I don’t know, Bubba. Dale, Jr. sure has been a disappointment for those of us who followed NASCAR back when Lake Speed was driving.
Stupid Heltons and thier restrictor plates and such.
Cmon’ Dave. You’re really slipping. Need more regular posts. And how about adding some substance. Or maybe you’ve been busy preparing to run David Sander’s state rep campaign.
Nascar rules! I just wish that Mark was doing better this year.
