Little Rock Airport to be renamed for Bill and Hillary Clinton
Arkansas Times ^ | 16 MAR 2012 | Max Brantley

Posted on 03/17/2012 8:43:27 AM PDT by DCBryan1

The Little Rock Airport Commission has scheduled a discussion at its meeting Tuesday to rename the airport the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.

The idea has kicked around for years, with varying amounts of cheering and jeering. Hillary Clinton served for a time as legal counsel to the airport.

I'm guessing the votes are in hand now to honor Arkansas's native son president and his wife, the secretary of state.

It's better than a guess. Our FOI request early today produced 1) renderings of various proposed sign treatments including the one above; 2) the resolution the commission has up for a vote, and 3) e-mail about planned publicity from the Markham Group, which handles PR for the airport, including a memo on talking points on the name change. Interesting to see the spin machine at work, including a lineup of notables to speak in favor of the name change. Public notice was not part of the fait accompli PR plan, though notice of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, naturally, was. The Markham Group, you'll remember, did the unaccounted-for work on the Chamber's shadow campaign to get a $500 million city sales tax adopted. I should say the PR plan did call for leaks to "key media." That didn't include us, except by happenstance.

Note that all this is just a proposal at this point, particularly design elements. Airport Director Ron Mathieu said in an e-mail to commissioners earlier this month:

Attached please find the proposed designs for the new entrance icon. I think the one that has the blue "potential water feature or light feature" is the best, but that is just my opinion.

I would suggest that we all keep these concepts under wraps until both the Clinton Foundation

LMFAO! Oh... this is just ripe for parody.

Will they have a KFC and a rib place in the terminal? Maybe TSA screeners with cankles?

We are lucky that places in DC haven’t changed their building names to the Clinton’s. Reagan has quite a few things named after him. I think that the Clinton’s will to since he was a two term President. Normally two term Presidents get things named after them. The longer time lapses from the clinton term the more things will be named after him. It took about 20 years for Reagan to have things named after him.

Laugh now. Wait until O’Hare becomes................. Need I say it? Really? Of course to birthers an “International” airport named after the “one” would be most appropriate. Said previously, we’ll never be free of these clowns. These 1%’rs that can so readily relate to the ows’rs.

The terminal has three (3) security lines:

1) Pilots and TSA
2) Civilians with NO rights
3) HOT CHICKS....that both Bill AND Hillary will enjoy!

Hey women got a long layover or flight delay at Clinton Intl? Now get a free government paid in-terminal abortion at the lower level of Concourse C. Just a small donation to the DNC is all that is requested at the location. Happy flyby abortions!

“Comrades: Ya’ll will note that the Flying C travel stop in the main concourse has a variety of things to do for adults as well as kids. There’s a store/gift shop with all kinds of things that you can buy for your flight, as well as food and drink.
For you illiterates there are Video Book Rentals. You can rent a video book or two at one stop, and then return them at the next one! This really cuts down the boredom.
There are new DVDs as well: `President’s Day: Pants Half Off, starring George Clooney and Juliann Moore; `UFC’s Hillary v. Fluke: The Mud Games,’ `Our Friends the Bears’ by Timothy Treadwell, `Shedding My Skin’ by James Carville and `The Itsy Bitsy Spider’ by Gov. Blago, #92850.
There are also loads of novelty gifts, rubber knives, guns and swords, t-shirts, and funny stuff, like the rattle snake in a can, the bleating calf or the California earthquake in a can, as well as the William J. Clinton Memorial Sex Novelties Store, an entire shop full of latex and hard rubber aids, toys, movies and such. 12 or older!
Y’all have fun, ya hear? And visit Li’l Rock again real soon!”

I would not name anything after Clinton. There is no comparison to him and Reagan. Clinton does not justify anything named after him.
Reagan was a great president.

...freshly dead unattended.

Um, didn't he say something about he'd like to get together with a mummy?

Heck, with the Clintons, it's best not to leave ANYTHING around that's unattended.

As the saying goes, "They'd steal a hot stove, and come back for the smoke."

I thought the $890K sexual harassment lawsuit settlement would have prevented this; he pulled his penis out on Paula Jones.
