Jay Bookman, meet Doug Heckman...

Or, as I just thought to post over at Jay's AJC blog:
Jay, you know that Fair Tax co-author and noted right wing neocon clown John Linder is facing a challenge to his seat by an Iraq and Afghanistan (Special Forces) war vet, Doug Heckman.

Of course Linder has money up the wazoo, and his whole Fair Tax cult (and Boortz’ knuckle-dragging listener base, presumably) surrounding him, but you never know, particularly if all those new uppity minorities and all them Yankee transplants were to get motivated to vote this year.

You think maybe that might be worth a column or two? Everyone likes a David v. Goliath story, right?

Given Jay's on-the-record takedowns of the Fair Tax, and his personal dislike for the book's other co-author (Boortz has refused to allow Jay to come on his radio show, insisting instead on a rigged town-hall meeting that would be packed with FairTax cultists shouting down naysayers), I think it's just a matter of time before we see Jay visiting this topic.

Hope it's in a dead-tree column, and not just online.
