One of the most vulnerable Democrats in the Senate my have just gotten more vulnerable.
In an interview aired Wednesday morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., said his GOP opponent, Rep. Tom Cotton, feels entitled to the seat because of his service as an Army infantry officer in Afghanistan and Iraq.
"There's a lot of people in the Senate that didn't serve in the military. ... I think it's part of this sense of entitlement that he gives off almost as like 'I served my country, therefore elect me to the Senate.' That's not how it works in Arkansas," said Pryor, who holds the Senate seat his father held for almost 20 years.
Cotton, who's in his first term in the House, insists his military service taught him values and traits that "we need more of in Washington, D.C."

stick another fork in this guy
“Pryors father was Governor and Senator of Arkansas. Not even the production booth missed the irony of someone trading on the family name lashing out at his opponents supposed sense of entitlement. Pryor was probably toast anyway, but this should bury him and the family dynasty”
Acitve Duty/Retiree ping.
What a stupid statement from someone who feels entitled to his father’s senate seat! A military veteran deserves a voice in the government much more than someone who just happened to be born into an office holder’s family.
Pryor must go.
Like others have said....if Pryor wasn’t already toast, this should finish him off.
Pure projection of an entitled 'Rat based on his "inheritance" of a family owned seat. (See Kennedys, Clintoon, Dingel, et. al.)
Pryor would fit in well as a repub in the senate with stupidity like that dripping out his mouth.
A sense of entitlement, coming from a guy who only got elected because his daddy was a state Senator and Governor.
Hahahahhahahahahahaha. Right now he is puking his guts up as the full gravity of what he said kicks in,
Last week I heard a state radio news say that Pryor and Cotton are basically tied, but 15% of the voters were still undecided.
LOL. You’re running in Arkansas, Mark, not Massachusetts!
I was looking for the “satire” tag on this. I couldn’t find it!! Too many years of living in Washington on the taxpayers dime has given Pryor a “sense of entitlement”.
Id only hold it against them if they were a draft dodger..
not serving during peace times doesn’t rule out a candidate..
Cotton Ahead of Pryor in Another New Poll
LITTLE ROCK, AR - For the second time this week, Rep. Tom Cotton is ahead of Sen. Mark Pryor in a new poll on the U.S. Senate race.
According to Harris Polling, the congressman has a 6-point lead over the incumbent 42-percent to 36-percent. The survey lists 22-percent as undecided.
Just yesterday, a Rasmussen Reports poll showed Cotton with a 5-point lead in the race.
On a related note, a poll ArkansasMatters.com included on the Rasmussen story on Thursday gave Cotton an even bigger lead. Of those taking the poll, 62-percent chose Cotton while 38-percent selected Pryor.
Hey Sen Pryor, did you ever stop to think that maybe
Tom Cotton has the entitlement affliction know as
johnkerryitis named for a Vietnam vet, I believe?
I will side with the Vet before I side with some college-only
Anybody has a problem with that can kiss my MARINE ass.
“What a stupid statement from someone who feels entitled to his fathers senate seat!”
I assure you that that seat did not belong to this turd’s father. It has always belonged to The People!
The Soldier/Vet is there to see that it stays that way.
Smells like desperation.
