Lu Hardin, the Economy and — Yes — Sarah Palin on ‘Arkansas Week’

I’m on Arkansas Week tonight, along with host Steve Barnes and Stephens Media Group reporter Rob Moritz. I joked earlier today that there was probably little that happened this week worth talking about. The irony of that statement was even bigger than I intended.

We got the news of Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s choice of running mate, little-known Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, just minutes to air. Thanks to some help from the show’s staff, we quickly brushed up on the broad stokes of Palin’s biography, completely surprised — like most — by the choice.

Also on tonight’s broadcast (the last before AETN goes Hi-Def on Sept. 1): the Lu Hardin resignation, SAT scores, a report on poverty in Arkansas and a wrap-up of the Democratic National Convention.

Check us out at 8 p.m. tonight on your local AETN station.
