Editorial Rips Worthless Arkansas Senator

The largest newspaper in Arkansas just turned up the heat on Mark Pryor. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s editorial board ridiculed Pryor for fear mongering over his discredited Ebola ad.

The editorial board then pointed out just how worthless Pryor has been in the Senate.

But it’s nigh-impossible to imagine Mark Pryor’s ever taking a stand he knew might prove unpopular with the voters–for no better reason than it was the principled thing to do. Senator Pryor is an all too familiar type: the go-along-to-get-along politician, a faithful backbencher who’d follow the party line right out the window, and has–the way he voted for Obamacare.

Moderate? You bet Mark Pryor is moderate. So moderate his political record is almost featureless, so remarkably empty that there’s a kind of grandeur about it, like the Grand Canyon.

Let’s just say it’s hard to imagine our senior senator’s being the subject of any future edition of Profiles in Courage.

It seems that Pryor agrees that he’s a worthless Senator. In May, Pryor told The Washington Post that the one thing he would change about Washington wasn’t any new policy proposals, but “the behavior of Senators.”

That’s change no one believes in.
