Opening in the Kansas Senate

There's going to be an opening in the Kansas Senate soon.

I am not sure who is leaving, but rumor has it one Senator is soon to be vaunted to a cherry appointment on the Kansas Corporation Commission.

The KCC has regulatory authority over energy companies operating in Kansas.

Yesterday's news

This is late. Patricia Lightner has entered the race for Johnson County Commission Chair.

She made it official last weekend, but for those keeping count, I mentioned it several months ago.

She will be a welcome addition to the Ed vs Ed Show. Added bonus: Her candidacy sparks an August primary.


Sometimes the wisest choice is just to shut.your.mouth.

Politicians are notoriously terrible at it, and Gov. Sam Brownback is no exception.

Our embarrassing Governor used his brief time on Fox News to bash Ted Cruz for not falling in line with the Establishment and for having the nerve to say what anyone who wasn't living in a box in the '90s has now figured out: Bob Dole really wasn't that great.  (See this, this, and this.)

Here's the 4-1-1.

Ha. Ha. Hahahahaha

Gov. Brownback isn't ruling out a run for the Presidency, according to Fox News.

I put his chances of ascending to the top office in the land at right around 0 percent.
