Kansan to Serve as Trump Political Director?

A Bloomberg reporter on Twitter suggests that Alan Cobb, I think yes, that Alan Cobb, may be tapped to serve as Donald Trump's political director.

Cobb has been working as consultant for Trump. (I wish you could see my face as I type those words, because it's a face of pain and suffering.)

Oh wait, it looks something like this:

Cobb once worked as an aide for Bob Dole. (Dole once criticized Trump, but then seemed to come around when it looked like Sen. Ted Cruz might get the nomination. I am still scratching my head as to why there seems to be a reporter stationed at Bob Dole's door at all times. Give the guy a rest already.) 

Cobb also served as the state director for Americans for Prosperity. He's also lobbied for Koch Industries. Easy there, libs. It's OK to work for the Kochs.

I am still debating whether it's acceptable to work for Trump. 

If tapped for the role, Cobb would replace Rick Wiley. I can't tell you anything about Wiley or the other folks rumored to be in consideration for the job -- Ken McKay or Ed Brookover.

Cobb's a nice enough guy, perhaps too nice to work for Trump. I don't know him well enough to know whether he would consider it selling a piece of his soul to work for Trump, but I can say without certainty, my conscience won't even allow me to vote for the guy. I think Cobb should take a hard pass.
