PACKING: Beth Anne Rankin

  • PACKING: Beth Anne Rankin might be.

It’s early, but I’d nominate this for the stupidest news release of the season so far. Republican Beth Anne Rankin, a Republican candidate for 4th District Congress, used Dave Elswick’s platform on Radio K-NUT to announce she has a concealed carry permit. But don’t ask her if she’s packing. She’s not going to divulge sensitive info like that.

Rankin, to date, has had to compete with opponent Tom Cotton’s flogging of his Army experience in the Middle East, so I guess she had to do something to prove her somethinghood.

Jeez. Surprised she hasn’t already updated her Facebook page with several photos of her fondling large shooting irons.

Last time I got a copy of the concealed carry list, Cotton wasn’t on it, but it’s been a while. I suspect he knows how to handle a weapon. Can’t conceal what he’s gripping in one of his Facebook photos. Perhaps a target shoot is the way to decide this race.
