(Newser) – Little Rock is paying tribute to the Clintons by renaming the city airport in their honor, reports the Arkansas News. Once the FAA signs off on the switch, the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport will be in business. Airport receptionists already have begun using the new name, notes the AP. The official airport designation will remain LIT.

"We are grateful for this honor and for all that the people of Arkansas have done for us," said the Clintons in a statement. "And we look forward to many happy landings at the airport in the years ahead."

Well, this airport has one whole runway that only operates at night. It's for smuggling drugs and all the dead bodies of the people Billy and Hill'ry have had killed. Oh ... your tin foil tam-o-shanter is on crooked.

They renamed National Airport after Reagan, why? he hated DC. They named a Library after Thurgood Marshall at Maryland University, A school which wouldn't admit him. Naming things like this makes no sense.
