Politically Speaking: That Rants knows his stuff

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

I got another chance Wednesday to view the fertile brain of
Christopher Rants, who has to have as encyclopedic a mind of anyone
serving in the Iowa Legislature. Rants, of course, was recently
demoted from Iowa House Republican leadership position he'd held for
six years, but he certainly didn't throw aside his institutional
knowledge when that happened. Typically my interactions with Rants
come from short phone interviews or a more expansive sitdown once or
twice a year. Today he was in top form at the annual Sioux City
Legislative Day, where 2009 legislative priorities of the city were
laid out before four of the five statehouse lawmakers from Sioux City
(the in-by-the-skin-of-his-teeth Wes Whitead was absent). Nothing
against Steve Warnstadt, Roger Wendt and Ron Wieck, but Rants was the
most verbal of the bunch.
