But, one acorn that rots when it hits the ground does not mean that ALL acorns from that tree are bad. Some will be eaten by squirrels, sustaining life for the season. Others will grow into more oak trees.

Spikie,

I've spent a lot of time in Arkansas- canoed the White, Buffalo and Norfork rivers.... spent weeks on Beaver Lake, carried a surveyor's transit up and down those rocky hills (and come eye to eye with a rattlesnake on more than one occasion), and spent evenings pulling ticks off my body by the dozens.

I have good friends in Arkansas.. in Little Rock and Fayetteville, so I am not knocking the state of Arkansas.

But it does seem... that wherever the Republican Party's Tea Party wing has made inroads, these sorts of fellas are bred in profusion.

And the question remains... who elects them?
