Skip to comments.Little Rock Airport to be renamed for Bill and Hillary Clinton
Posted on 03/17/2012 8:43:27 AM PDT by DCBryan1
The Little Rock Airport Commission has scheduled a discussion at its meeting Tuesday to rename the airport the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
The idea has kicked around for years, with varying amounts of cheering and jeering. Hillary Clinton served for a time as legal counsel to the airport.
I'm guessing the votes are in hand now to honor Arkansas's native son president and his wife, the secretary of state.
It's better than a guess. Our FOI request early today produced 1) renderings of various proposed sign treatments including the one above; 2) the resolution the commission has up for a vote, and 3) e-mail about planned publicity from the Markham Group, which handles PR for the airport, including a memo on talking points on the name change. Interesting to see the spin machine at work, including a lineup of notables to speak in favor of the name change. Public notice was not part of the fait accompli PR plan, though notice of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, naturally, was. The Markham Group, you'll remember, did the unaccounted-for work on the Chamber's shadow campaign to get a $500 million city sales tax adopted. I should say the PR plan did call for leaks to "key media." That didn't include us, except by happenstance.
Note that all this is just a proposal at this point, particularly design elements. Airport Director Ron Mathieu said in an e-mail to commissioners earlier this month:
Attached please find the proposed designs for the new entrance icon. I think the one that has the blue "potential water feature or light feature" is the best, but that is just my opinion.
I would suggest that we all keep these concepts under wraps until both the Clinton Foundation

Someone needs to Photoshop this picture with a "HOURLY RATES!", "Happy Ending", and "Massage Parlour" in it ;)
LMFAO! Oh... this is just ripe for parody.
Will they have a KFC and a rib place in the terminal? Maybe TSA screeners with cankles?
They should have an indoor rollercoaster: Bill’s Chubby Chaser
We are lucky that places in DC haven’t changed their building names to the Clinton’s. Reagan has quite a few things named after him. I think that the Clinton’s will to since he was a two term President. Normally two term Presidents get things named after them. The longer time lapses from the clinton term the more things will be named after him. It took about 20 years for Reagan to have things named after him.
Laugh now. Wait until O’Hare becomes................. Need I say it? Really? Of course to birthers an “International” airport named after the “one” would be most appropriate. Said previously, we’ll never be free of these clowns. These 1%’rs that can so readily relate to the ows’rs.
A great place to land a broom!
The airport will have a lot of desk jobs.
Sheeesh.....how much stuff has to be named after them? All the urinals in the airport are already named for them.
Heh.....a cigar and almond shop also?!
Bet they add a cigar shop.
Please do not leave any female that is alive or freshly dead unattended.
Where Bill Clinton joins the Mile High Club.
Where 747s aren’t the only wide-bodies.
1) Pilots and TSA
2) Civilians with NO rights
3) HOT CHICKS....that both Bill AND Hillary will enjoy!
Will passengers have to show ID, or would that be discrimination?
Wouldn’t the Mena Airport have been more appropriate?
I would have gone for the airstrip in Mena.
