You don't think D.C.-style politics — militant partisanship and super-aggressive message control — have come to Little Rock? I got a small chuckle this afternoon after learning a photo ID and campaign-issued press credentials would be required to attend one of the election night watch parties for the Republican primary tomorrow.

For a candidate for lieutenant governor.

In the party room of a pizza joint.

Whose party? Who else but Karl Rove's boy, Tim Griffin. Say hello for me if you drop by U.S. Pizza, I'll be elsewhere that night.

Last time I needed a credential for an election night watch party was 1992, so I could to stand within a few yards of the next president of the United States. The Secret Service insisted.

The next Mark Darr can't be too careful.
