Arkansas News Bureau columnist John Brummett writes what all of us in the press are saying privately.
We grow weary of the daily tit-for-tat of press releases from campaign surrogates in the Lincoln v. Halter Democratic primary (other races, too).
Brummett singles out Halter spokesman Bud Jackson and Lincoln spokesman Steve Patterson – the two doing most of the traditional message response for their respective candidates. Says Brummett:
I don’t give a flip-fly what Jackson or Patterson says. I’m interested in what Lincoln and Halter have to say.
So let’s have a debate.
Let’s see if Lincoln and Halter can find time to talk directly to and about each other.
They’ll have to get out of the television studio where they are merely play-acting as self-styled heroes in an ongoing TV series — Halter as a grocery-bagger and Lincoln as one tough lady and the only grown-up in a romper room of wild children.
