The Arkansas House voted 56-33-1 to override Gov. Beebe's veto of SB134. The new law requires a state-mandated ultrasound to detect a heartbeat before an abortion can be performed. If a heartbeat is detected (typically 12 weeks), the doctor cannot perform an abortion. This is the central battlefield of the War on Women.

A few weeks ago AxmxZ posted an Obama beaded pendant AxmxZ had made. In the comments, I suggested it be put on for sale.  I was so excited to see it as I have been working on my own Obama crafts in the wee hours of the night when one can't be calling for Neighbor to Neighbor or walking communities.

I recently had my first experience wearing an Obama craft in public, taking my Obama CHANGE purse to Kroger.  In this super republican county in Arkansas, the ladies at the deli counter were winking at me!  One even called me darlin'.  Then the lady at the cash register winked at me!  I was afraid I would ruffle some feathers or even accidentally offend people, but it was just the opposite.  This is the first time I've "advertised" for a candidate.  I didn't realize until recently it is a sign of trust...and can even help bolster people on the fence.

I am sorry to report to all of those Scott Kleeb supporters and swooners out there that he will soon no longer be that "Hot Single Cowboy Democrat from Nebraska".

Scott Kleeb ran for the 3rd District Representative from Nebraska in 2004 and lost to Adrian Smith.  The margin of victory was very close.  The Kearney Hub is reporting that he is engaged to Jane Fleming, executive director of Young Democrats of America.

In Nebraska we seem to have a big Republican wankfest going on.  Every week on NPR, we hear about how much the Republicans vying for Govenor and Senate have raised.  When it comes to Democratic numbers, we only hear about the incumbent Sen. Ben Nelson's numbers.  

That made me wonder if there were any Dem congressional candidates running and raising money in my district (NE-01).  Well I found her and her name is Maxine Moul, former Lt. Govenor of Nebraska.

From the makers of EMOGAME, a Macromedia Flash videogame where college rockers throw 7 inch records at record company execs, comes BUSHGAME.
