Since when did "conservative" Arkansas stop electing leftist RATS? About 3/4ths of the elected officials in AR are hardcore partisan RATs and I highly more than a handful of them are pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun "conservative" RATS. Liberals can't be elected "dog catcher" in Arkansas? Gee, I guess BOTH their Senators and ALL their statewide officials (minus the Governorship -- which the GOP only won thanks to Slick's suceessor going to prison) didn't get this memo:
ARKANSAS - U.S. SENATORS:
Blanche Lincoln (D)
Mark Pryor (D)
ARKANSAS SECRETARY OF STATE:
Charlie Daniels (D)
ARKANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL:
Mike Beebe (D)
ARKANSAS STATE AUDITOR:
Jim Wood (D)
ARKANSAS STATE TREASURER:
Gus Wingfield (D)
ARKANSAS STATE LAND COMMISSIONER (yes, it's an elected office):
Mark Wilcox (D)
ARKANSAS SENATE PRESIDENT:
Jim Argue (D)
ARKANSAS SENATE MAJORITY LEADER:

ARNKASAS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE:
Bill H. Stovall III (D)
ARKANSAS HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER:
Jay Bradford (D)
What's more, the Arkansas House of Reps is made up of 72 Democrats and ONLY 28 Republicans!! The Arkansas Senate is made up of 27 RATs and ONLY 8 Republicans! (these guy can hold their caucus meetings in the broom closet) 3 out of 4 Congressmen in Arkansas are RATS! I hate to break the news to you, but even Hillary's adopted state of NY is overwhemingly Dem but doesn't come close to being THAT lopsided.
Furthermore, the state of Arkansas elected Slick Willie no less that SIX times to the Governorship. They elected him President by OVERWHEMING margins TWICE! Look at how George Bush fared in the state back in 1992:
Arkansas is full of openly liberal Dems. None of their RAT Congressman are Zell Miller type Dems, and only one is a "moderate". During the RAT filibuster of judges, for instance, the Republicans protested and ultra liberal Blanche Lincoln complained the judicial hearings were taking away valueable time the Senate could spend on enacting more social welfare programs. They can't be elected dogcatcher? lol! Visit Arnkasas sometime. I think you'll discover the socialist Dems have a damn near monopoly on that "conservative" state.
I wrote that the Clintons would "never get elected dog catcher in the South these days."
The Dim Rat machine in Arkansas put them in office...but both Dims and GOP in that state generally detest Clintons. The Clintons have worn out their welcome in Arkansas...heck, the presidential library has to go begging for visitors.
