UPDATE: No go. A sign of the paranoia that Republicans and reporters are all trading on the same rumors, which then becomes so established that a competing network’s reporter would call to get my take on an 11 Alive story that did not even run.
The rumor of the evening is that at 6:00 tonight, 11 Alive will do a very unflattering story about Casey Cagle that, while not up to the Speaker’s level, will allegedly be his undoing too.
And then there is the Ben Harbin story another network is allegedly working on.
Maybe this is the echo chamber in full tilt among Republicans, but holy hell my voicemail filled up on my iPhone this afternoon and none of it is good.
One more thing, to confirm Buzz, the Speaker is out.
