Brummett's back

Posted By on Tue, May 2, 2006 at 5:50 AM

John Brummett is back after a splendid vacation in Tuscany. He catches up with comments on Ronnie Brewer, the huffy Huckster, the tiresome race for lieutenant governor and even a kind word for Asa Hutchinson.

Huckabee's peevishness called attention to one of the two or three good things about Asa Hutchinson's Republican candidacy to succeed him. It is that Hutchinson seems generally open to all media, to the point that his press secretary maintains a fairly readable daily blog on which he posts even critical commentaries.

The other good things about Asa's campaign? One is that he wants to reform the General Improvement Fund. At the moment I can't think of another.
