Mo' moneyOMG OMG OMG OMG OMG: It’s that once-in-a-decade reason to visit Arkansas! “Tomorrow night, [Harold Ford Jr.]’s due to square off against Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock – a political death match entitled, ‘Left, Right, and Forward: On the Future of America.'” YouTube: you’ve got a lot of pressure for this one. Also, each of them is being paid tens of thousands of dollars to appear. [NYDN]

  1. If they did a nightclub act together where they sawed people in half and made stuff disappear it could be a reality TV show called “Here Come the Magic Negroes”. NBC would give them a 13 show deal.

  2. Let’s forget about the fact that they’re both black “republicans” for a moment. It’s still not a “political death match” when you agree on everything.

  3. “As prominent leaders representing both sides of the political spectrum, Harold Ford Jr. and Michael Steele will engage the audience in the most hot-button issues that will shape our nation’s future,” Dr. Jan Austin, director of UALR’s Office of Campus Life, said in a statement.

    Right — representing the red end of the spectrum, Red. And representing the violet end of the spectrum, Orange.

  4. Did Harold Ford win American Idol or something? Jesus, suddenly he’s everywhere.

    A little more than half of Arkansas, by the way, is quite beautiful, very scenic. On the other hand, it’s also the state where I saw a business named — and I’m not making this up — Pud’s Beauty Salon.

  5. [re=507141]BeWoot[/re]: Good one, but Arkansas doesn’t have a monopoly on hick business names. In Minnesota I once saw a gas station called ‘Pump ‘N Munch’.

  6. Left will be represented by the audience, as in it will be interesting to see if anyone is left by the end of this program.
    Forward will be represented by the audience, who will head in that direction for the exits once they realize just how boring this gathering will be.

  7. “Tard, meet Retard. Retard, this is Tard.

    Now, let’s review the rules, er, rule: Whichever one of you finishes your paste first will be declared the winner of this stupid fucking debate. Simple as that, okay?

    Any questions? Retard? How ’bout you, Tard? No? Alright then, let’s do this!

    On your mark…get set…annnd we appear to have ourselves a tie!”

  8. It’s going to get awkward when Julia Allison shows up with her new boyfriend, Bears QB Jay Cutler.

    (Would love this to happen. A third evidence of the falsity of the “once thou goest black, thou does not goeth back”. Barack’s mom (Indonesian AFTER black), Katy Perry (Russell Brand AFTER the mulatto singer from Gym Class Heroes),… Julia Allison? Yes, please.)

  9. [re=507235]guey de gueyes[/re]: In the 2008 presidential election, Obama had a bigger win percentage-wise in Austin than he did in New Jersey; and Dallas and Houston went for Obama.

  10. “Pud’s Beauty Salon” and “Pump N’ Munch” are good, but meh fav malaprop is in Washington D.C. – it’s called “The House of Representives” – I hear it’s actually a front for a bunch of corrupt banks, insurance scams and multinationals..if I remember right Mr. Ford worked there a while back.
