  • BACKWARD: Beth Arnold found this image on Facebook a good illustration of the political times.

Beth Arnold, a native Arkansan and writer not long back in the country after time in France, writes for Huffington Post about change of Arkansas from Democratic to Republican politics. She's not entertained.

Since I've been back in the U.S., I've been horrified by how quickly Arkansas is moving backward. It was bad enough in early March, when Arkansas's green-behind-the-ears senator, Tom Cotton, became the poster boy of Republican idiocy in The New York Times and around the world, with his treacherous letter to Iran. Not that there aren't a few good souls in there, but the intolerance and malice of the current Arkansas legislature has been brutally offensive.

To which some of our legislators would undoubtedly say: "What some Freedom Fries with that whine?"
