Word is that Sen. Jason Rapert’s bill to strip the names of Bill and Hillary Clinton from the Little Rock National Airport isn’t winning many friends. I’m told Rapert hasn’t yet been able to get a motion to move the bill out of committee.

It’s a petty bill that befits the sponsor. Sad to say some of his other equally empty demagoguery is experiencing a better reception — such as hate speech resolutions against gay people and women’s medical rights.

Meanwhile, on on-line petition drive to name sewage tanks in Conway for Rapert now has 2,350 signatures. Not too late to add yours.
