Rounding Up Wyrick’s Support

I couldnt find a Phil Wyrick photo, so here are some Victorias Secret models.

In going through the daily mail at Arkansas Project World Headquarters yesterday, I was surprised to find an envelope sent to me by Little Rock ladies’ underwear magnate Barbara Graves. I couldn’t imagine what Ms. Graves could possibly want with me, as I usually get my ladies’ underwear fixes by swiping my girlfriend’s Victoria Secret catalogs as soon as they pass over the threshold.

Opening the envelope, I was supremely disappointed pleasantly surprised to find that Ms. Graves’ mailing had nothing to do with ladies’ underwear, and everything to do with raising money for Phil Wyrick’s campaign for Pulaski County Judge.

Wyrick is the Republican challenger to incumbent Democratic Pulaski County Judge Buddy Villines, whose indomitable power stems from the fact that he looks a lot like Santa Claus, if Santa Claus wore an ID badge around his neck and carried a cocktail everywhere he went (photo at left).

The fundraising event for Wyrick is September 21, and if you want the details on attending, e-mail me or something.

Of potential interest to Arkansas Project readers is the mix of folks listed as Wyrick supporters on the “Hosts” list for the invitation, which you can read at the jump. The list includes quite a few known Republican names, as you would expect. But there are a couple of Democrats in the mix, as well—including one Democratic state legislator.

    Is J.J. Vigneault the democrat you speak of?

  • David Kinkade

    Adcock and Graves are the only ones that jump out at me as definite Dems, though there are a few ostensible R’s on the list who were Beebe people in ’06, like Ron Fuller. Others may be able to fill in the picture more fully.

  • Daniel

    No, J.J. is not.

    To me, personally no matter what J.J. Vigneault does from now on or has ever done in his life I will regard him as one of the RINO Republican traitors who turned their back on the Arkansas Republican movement. Hedging his bets for Mike Beebe and cutting Asa Hutchinson and his supporter’s throats. I hope one day I will make his acquaintance and tell him that to his face. He is a disgusting Benedict Arnold and I hold him in similar regards with the likes of Judas Iscariot.

  • Daniel

    To each his own, but I respectfully disagree, AKA Bryce.

  • Daniel

    To follow my previous post up, what matters is not who supports who (but I must admit it is nice seeing several of the Democrat-persuasion throwing their support for Phil), but, instead, that Buddy Villines is finally removed county government.

  • AKA Bryce

    I would agree that it is important for everyone that Villines is defeated.
