Quick Hits

KS caucus turnout demonstrates a problem for the state’s Dems

Dave Helling is a giant racist who thinks all blacks think alike. He things African Americans love Hillary. Maybe all of the minority voters in Kansas were attending the GOP Caucus.

Michael O’Donnell showed poor judgment bringing beer

Sen. O'Donnell, a Wichita Republican, bought beer for some minors. He said he was buying beer for a former campaign supporter's 21st birthday at a frat house. Um. Why on earth is a 31-year-old hanging out in fraternity houses? No bueno. O'Donnell will not seek re-election. (Shocker.)

From the blog post at Esquire: 

Gov. Sam Brownback--excuse me, twice elected, god help us, Gov. Sam Brownback--turned the state into a lab rat for all the worst policy ideas produced by the modern conservative Republican party. The legislature went along gleefully for the ride.
The blog post continues. It's typical liberal hack, but notable because it's liberal hack from a national magazine about men's fashion. Or at least, I think that's what it's about. 

Greg Smith his, daughter, politics stay inextricably linked 

Whatever small hint of journalistic integrity the Pitch may have once had it puked onto the concrete last week with this story, which takes an accusatory tone against Greg Smith. Smith, you see, is motivated in part by the untimely murder of his daughter Kelsey. 
This story is disgusting. Some things truly are off limits, and a personal tragedy in which a parent loses a child is definitely one of them.


  1. I really enjoyed your blog post about the Kansas GOP. I found it very interesting to read about what's going on in the Kansas GOP from your perspective. It was also great to see why you decided to become an intern for the Kansas Republican Party. I'm glad you decided to share your experience with the people who really care about the Kansas GOP.
