As I head off to Washington to start the new job, let’s have this open thread. Here are a few topics worth noting:
- Eric Johnson has taken on the Westboro Baptist Church and its “pastor” Fred Phelps for protesting at a soldier’s funeral with signs saying “Thank God for the IED.”
- Multiple sources are telling Peach Pundit that Ralph Reed is still raising lots of money and has fairly competently implemented his grassroots structure across the state.
- The legislature is expected to take up Jerry Keen’s tax plan to fund education with a sales tax instead of the property tax.
Discuss those and others in the comments.
