Jim Keet filed as the Republican candidate for governor today.
Red-hot Repubs (are there any other kind?) were not too impressed by the book Keet was carrying when he sat down to file. You might recognize "The Audacity of Hope," by B. Hussein Obama on the table. He apparently wanted to make a point about his own audacity or something. No biggie to me.
But did Keet really have to give a shoutout at the event to state Rep. Ed Garner of Maumelle as a legislator he wanted to work with on streamlining Arkansas taxes? Garner isn't exactly a poster child for respect for tax law.
