Such is the appellation former Buckeye and radio talk show host, Hugh Hewitt
, gives to the broken (and broke) state of California. But if we resemble modern Greece in our profligate spending and mounting debt, do we have a glimmer of hope that we might also recur to an ounce of ancient wisdom?
Perhaps. Hewitt notes the race least discussed outside of California (but probably the most important to the nation as a whole): the contest for California Attorney General which features the talented legal scholar, John Eastman. Eastman's credentials as a constitutional originalist and formidable litigator extend around the block. With Eastman in the position of California AG, Hewitt argues, Obamacare will find itself up against a most serious and carefully crafted legal challenge. Serious conservatives from around the country ought to take note of this race and follow it with interest.
