Shark in St. Louis
I'm back from the Conservative Heartland Leadership Conference in St. Louis, where I spoke on a panel discussing state courts and judicial selection. I spoke about the pros and cons of judicial elections and our experience here in Wisconsin. The best line of the day came from, I think, Grover Norquist who noted that Obama more or less kept his promise about not raising taxes on people earning over $250000/year in raising the tobacco tax. He is, most likely, the only person in the country who makes over $250000/year and smokes.
