Challenging Stosch

Jim Bacon has already written-up the RTD story about a primary challenge to Sen. Walter Stosch.

While I tend to agree with Jim's assessment -- particularly on the lameness of Stosch's response to the challenge from Joseph Blackburn -- I disagree that Blackburn is just another "just say no" to taxes guy.

Let's give him the opportunity to flesh things out first. And while it's true that opposition to taxes it not necessarily a governing philosophy, it would be interesting for me to hear what he has to say about property rights, especially in light of the Senate's refusal last year to pass anything that would have closed the Kelo loopholes.

Stosch and his cohorts (including the ever-oily Ken Stolle) have a lot to answer for in that matter.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
