Senate Bill 31

I probably should have written more about this dog. I guess I figured the big boys and girls carried the water.

It's going to have a floor debate in the House tomorrow and despite weird dreams of vampires and muscle cars which have kept me up until daybreak lately, I'm going to get up early tomorrow to cover the circus.

But here's a quick dirty summary.

Clark Howard's agin it.

The Peach Pundit boys are agin it.

The Blog for Democracy peeps are agin it.

The Libertarians (both North and South) are agin it.

If that combination of weird ain't enough for you, I'm agin it.

Despite people of every stripe coming out against this thing, it appears to be on a quicksilver path to passage. The only explanation for this cognitive dissonance is a display of raw power by one of the biggest players in the game.

Will brute force prevail?

The answer waits on the morn.

Lots of bloggers seem to think that this will be a factor in the 2010 elections.

Anyone want to guess why the phase in starts in 2011?

Does anyone really think that date was picked based on a proposed construction schedule?
