Well that didn’t take long. After opening his campaign with the most I-Love-Jesus-y ad of this or any other recent decade, Mark Pryor has decided to go negative on Tom Cotton, who has been leading him in most recent polls. And under the theory that if you’re not going to go big, you should go home, Pryor has chosen to accuse Tom Cotton of being… pro-Ebola and pro-the death of kids:
You gotta give it to Mark Pryor. If he’s gonna go down, he’s not gonna go down running a vanilla campaign. Nor one based on the facts. It’s not often even in politics that you see people being accused of wanting to spread a deadly and exotic African disease to America. Especially given that the facts upon which the ad is even nominally based are wrong.
Cotton argued at the time that this provision should provide for voluntary assignment of public health officials in response and ultimately the Senate HELP Committee agreed and amended the provision to make reassignment voluntary. When this unconstitutional provision was removed from the bill, Cotton voted for its final passage.
So not only does Mark Pryor’s ad ludicrously claim that Tom Cotton is pro-Ebola, the very facts on which he bases his ad are completely and dead wrong. It took a little while, but the stench of flopsweat is reeking from the Pryor campaign now.

There’s a reason that people like Alex Jones exist, and that’s because a person who believes one insane conspiracy will most likely believe them all.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Hillary the Unaccomplished is still playing the gender card. At this point, that’s all she has left in the campaign. She’s been in the public eye for years, but name recognition is not the same as being qualified for the job of president. Since she saw Barack Obama use the race card so victoriously in 2008 (and even 2012), | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES When your only tool is a hammer, every problem is a nail; to Trump, everything is a negotiation. An election is nothing more than a protracted negotiation with various interest groups (“the blacks”, “the Hispanics”, “the evangelicals”, etc.), not a competition among statesmen vying to win the support of voters. In a negotiation, every party has its own motives; a | Read More »
