Reaction so far to the Top 10 legislator list: Not bad, people say, but Sen. Bryan King shouldn’t have been there, and instead, at 10th, I should have put either Rep. Darrin Williams of Little Rock, who helped kill bad bills, or Sen. Johnny Key of Mountain Home, an often-overlooked reasonable Republican.
Probably so. I was determined to pry King in there for reasons I am having trouble remembering
I think I just wanted to irk people. But I do that naturally enough.
Some legislators are mentioning the idea of polling themselves to see how they would select a Top 10. I wish they would do that. It would be interesting to compare.
I will not do a Bottom 10 because, after you list Jason Rapert, Bob Ballinger and the two Meekses, you get into a kind of mundane general badness.
Worst delegation: Conway. No contest.
