Will Beshear save us by taxing Mountain Dew?

Before the presidential race and the nationalization of the banking industry distracted from the fact that we weren't supposed to be talking about rising state revenues in Kentucky, Gov. Steve Beshear was talking about raising cigarette taxes.

In Frankfort earlier this year, some lawmakers were talking about the evils of Mountain Dew. Might taxing that evil brew be part of Beshear's next tax-raising scheme?

Cigarettes, gambling and Mt. Dew. It seems our governor's entire budget plan is built on the back of vice. If only he could figure out a way to tax meth and marijuana...we could get the Louisville bridge project completed a couple of years early.
