The New OligarchsThe new Tennessee Judicial Nominating Commission has been officially named. I was under the impression that Ron Ramsey wanted to appoint many more conservatives to the nominating body., but I do have to wonder if Rob Huddleston is surprised that he was not chosen. Based on a discussion he and I had several weeks ago, he seemed to believe that he had a serious chance to sit on the Commission.
Huddleston would have been a very fine choice from a conservative perspective.
Note: I apologize for the brevity of my entry. It has been an extremely busy week and I have also had trouble accessing this weblog. I will have a full Examiner column tomorrow.
