This morning when I was driving through I saw a John Duggar for Alderman sign. I guess he is running again. It is the first time I saw one this time, and the absolutely on sign on any of the main drags that I saw.
What do people in Arkansas think of the Duggars? I would love to know if their town really likes them or if they are like a freak show in the state. Jim Bob did say they are the number 1 show on TLC. I thought that was Jon and Kate plus 8 when it was airing
I volunteer for March of Dimes, and simultaneously tomorrow there is happening in Springdale the World's Largest Baby Shower, and the NWA March for Babies. I was at the NWA Convention Center tonight helping set up and in the trade show portion there was a booth with a sign that said, "Mrs. Duggar" and on the table were a calculator, cash box, and a package of Sharpie markers. I'm assuming she'll be selling books. Then I noticed a sign on the runway (there's also a fashion show, I think), and she's giving a little talk at 1:30 on the stage. I am going to be at the March for Babies at Arvest Ballpark and not at the Baby Shower tomorrow, but I just wanted to let any locals know what's up. It's just $3 to get into the event, and it goes to a good cause.
If the Boob runs for political office, what will it be? It seems doubtful that he would run for the US House of Representatives, since his district is already represented by a Republican who was elected in 2010. US senator is too far a reach. What about something such Commissioner of State Lands, whatever the hell that is??
Hane posted a topic in Quiver Full of DuggarsI recently got together with a cousin of mine whom I hadn't seen in years. He now lives in northwest Arkansas, and is a real estate lawyer for Walmart. (We're both native New Yorkers, born and raised Catholic, but no longer observant. Cue the snark about culture shock and the Bible Belt.) I asked him about women going around in denim jumpers, and he said it wasn't an uncommon sight. He said the Duggars were a big deal around there, and that, when he first moved there, NOTHING was open on Sundays, because EVERYONE was at church. Mr. Snark seems to have sipped a bit of the Kool-Aid, because he mentioned several times how NICE everyone was down there, and didn't think it odd that Chick-Fil-A observed the Sabbath. I would have gotten all in his NYC-law-school-educated face about Dominionism, and pumped him more about fundies, but we were at the luncheon following his mother's funeral. ETA that he told us he'd never seen so many pregnant unmarried Caucasian girls in his life--because it's obviously "slutty" to "plan" to have sex by getting contraception in advance, and having an abortion would make you a "murderer."
