This Conway-grown musical commentary hasn’t gone viral yet. But it’s worth a click.

PS — It was reported earlier that Jason Rapert shut down his Facebook page after comments started pouring in about his Tea Party video, his unconstitutional bill to force transvaginal probes of women in the course of banning most abortion and his general Rapertude (anti-gay, anti-Muslim, birther, Koch agenda supporter, etc.) But Rapert allies are working to stifle dissent in other ways. A state employee who posted a remark critical of Rapert on another Facebook page was shocked to have his boss ask about it this morning. Turns out one of Rapert’s henchmen had called after seeing the employee’s name this morning. Free speech still lives in the U.S. of A, but state employees best be careful about the time and equipment they use to engage in it. Jason is watching.

PPS — UPDATE: As you already know, Rapert and defenders are basing his entire defense for a homophobic, nativist and inaccurate screed on various websites’ criticism of him for making what sound like racially oriented remarks. He says the word “minorities” refers to political minorities. He is continuing that defense at the Capitol today and ignoring the rest of a repugnant address to a repugnant political group. Indeed, I’d urge all to watch the entire speech, provided here in four segments by a pro-Rapert website. As I’ve said before, it isn’t pretty. David Ramsey of the Times also comments perceptively after a close review of the full speech:
