Stuff From Around Arkansas, April 24
Missing the Point: Oh, look, there’s your attorney general, Dustin McDaniel, in some kind of “Just Say ‘No’ To Having Fun” PSA with a beach volleyball player, whose toned body is completely swathed in a tracksuit. That’s proof positive that whoever put this little show together doesn’t really grasp what it is that we all find so compelling about beach volleyball in the first place. (YouTube)

Web Savvy: Blogger Jason Tolbert notes that Arkansas GOP is using same web strategies firm used by Mike Huckabee to build new online and social networking presence. (The Tolbert Report)
Seriously: Speaking of Huckabee, poll jockey Nate Silver says media should take him more seriously as a potential presidential candidate, based on recent data. (FiveThirtyEight.com)
Unkindest Cut: The jobs ax is swinging at Stephens Media-owned Morning News of Northwest Arkansas and I-540 is just a river of blood. (Arkansas Times)

Bird Watching: So there’s an owl living at the Home Depot in Harrison, and this AP headline wants to know “Who’s There,” right? Get it? Because owls make that sound, so it’s onomatopoetic. I guess they’re cracking WISE over there at the AP, huh? You probably don’t give a HOOT for these terrible puns, huh? I guess that ole owl’s gonna have a MICE day, huh? I guess…uhhhh, let’s see….they must be watching some OWL PACINO movies over there, huh? Now that I think about it, that last one really doesn’t make a damn bit of sense. (AP)

Is it just me, or is Dusty McDaniel a total tool bag?
South Arkie, that’s not right and you know it. You should be ashamed of yourself. A “tool bag”? Really? That’s what you choose to call your attorney general? Is that proper? I really am disappointed in you. Your are bringing shame to LA. You really need to confess this to your priest and your mother. They will be greatly disappointed in you.
Everyone knows McDaniel is NOT a tool bag. He’s an ass. You should know the difference and be ashamed that you got something so basic so wrong.
Anybody got pics of Dustin livin’ it up during his college days. I bet he NEVER drank before he was 21.
