    Caillouet Watch:

    That Linda Caillouet is at it again. But she is getting sneaky. In todays installment of “Oops, I didnt have my fact in order” the DG “writer?” includes a little note at the end.

    When country star Garth Brooks was on the soccer fields of North Little Rock’s Burns Park watching his daughter play with her team from Broken Arrow, Okla., current wife Trisha Yearwood was with him.”

    Why would she include this? Why? Oh, Ill tell you why. Because when she previously “reported” on this topic she said that Yearwood was NOT with him.

    Linda, I’m watching. (and I just did that whole Bob DeNiro eye finger pointing thing)

    Aside from the buttcut, Jindal is a pretty sharp guy.
