    Gil would be a terrific candidate, but I hope he stays in Arkansas. Unless Jim Holt throws his hat in the ring again, then it’s “Run, Gil, Run!!!!!”

    Holt? Are you serious? Heck, I’m a liberal that thinks that Blanche is too conservative and even I can tell she’d mop the floor with him. Except in NW Arkansas Duggar land. Hitler would get elected there in a landslide. You repubs want a candidate that can win, I’d start thinking toward the middle a bit more.

    And find one without a name like “Gilbert”, sheesh- wasn’t a name like “Huckabee” bad enough….

    Hmm, AFG, point taken, but let’s look at some of those names on the Democratic side: “Blanche”? “Victor”? “Dustin”? “MARION”? I’ll admit, I wouldn’t wanna go through life as a “Gilbert,” but it would sure beat the hell out of living as a “Marion.”

    Gilbert sounds either like the name of a gay art dealer or a chemist with unkept hair. Marion sounds like a grandma. Interestingly enough, they are both Arkansas towns. Throw in a Steve and we’re set. I just hope someone named Blueball doesn’t run.

    Hey, don’t forget we’ve got a lot of Dicks on our side. Dick Cheney, Dick Nixon, and Dick Armey.

    Just remember folks your progressive votes got us in trouble and won’t get you out.

    VOTE DEMOCRAT IT BEATS WORKING!
    WORK HARDER DEMOCRATS NEED TO SPEND YOUR MONEY!
    SOCIALISIM IS GREAT UNTILL YOU RUN OUT OF OTHER PEOPLES MONEY!

    Wise up people, your already the second highest taxed state in the union with the lowest income per capita except MS.

    Business create’s wealth, not government. Get rid of the Democrats and watch this state start to climb up out of the basement.

    P.S. Did you pay your “Personal Property Tax” on your underwear this year? Oh, better hurry!
