Reading the tea leaves -- Are House Speaker Glenn Richardson & House Republicans looking for a way to take a more moderate, middle-of-the-road tack?

From the ajc's Political Insider:

House Speaker Glenn Richardson has hired a veteran of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson’s shop to be his new chief of staff.

Chris Cummiskey, an Atlanta native who currently is Isakson’s state director, has been tapped to replace Jay Walker, who resigned recently to go into private business. Cummiskey also served as political director for Isakson’s Senate campaign.

It’s possible to read too much into these things, but this hire is being read by some as a signal Richardson and House Republicans – perhaps looking around at what happened in other states this year – could be looking for a way to take a more moderate, middle-of-the-road tack.

Don't think bigshot Repub power broker Earl Ehrhart could even spell "moderate". Check out his freaking out on Peach Pundit:
