Chewy Hobbs Goodness

Bill Hobbs has been on a tear the past few days. Here are some highlights:

The gubernatiorial debate Wednesday night, which I sadly missed [see below], has got Hobbs looking at the reactions of the papers, here, here and here. One Half-Bakered note: the AP's Karin Miller is back! Ooh yeah.

Hobbs neatly skewers the Sundquist administration's actions after Nashville's Channel Five ran a sharp investigative series, which Tax Free Tennessee also reprinted here.

Just before the gubernatorial debates, Van Hilleary came out in favor of the Colorado Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR), forcing Bredesen to react. Unfortunately for Bredesen, he flinched and clearly left wiggle room for himself on future tax increases, even an income tax. Whether it was smart Hilleary planning, which I kinda doubt given his bad moves in the primary, or lucky speechifying, it has proven a water-shed moment for him. Bredesen has been clearly exposed! Hobbs does some good work on explicating this, and giving you lots to learn about TABOR.

So quit reading me and go there!

Until next time, that is all.
