Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Everyone's weighing in...

Everyone's weighing in...

For reasons that absolutely confound, people from outside of Kansas are weighing in (or at least reporting on) the political happenings in Kansas. (I'm not sure we want or need their attention. Yeah, I'm talking to you Bill Graves.)

Political outsiders (like ME!) are pitting the Republican primaries as CONSERVATIVES v. MODERATES. To some extent that's true, but there's so much more than that happening throughout the state. A writer for National Review believes the moderates are in trouble. The Wall Street Journal writes that the battle is on.

While I have the greatest respect for both publications, I find absolute fault with their attempts to handicap races in Kansas. I live here and am active in a few of them, and I don't have a CLUE how this all shakes out.

I hope they're right and that the mods are finally going to be put to pasture, but beyond a the noise blasting from a very few political junkies, I just don't see enough passion in any of these races to guarantee any outcomes.
