Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Train Derailment

Train Derailment

This special session will end in disaster. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

The only way this session ends in a way that is halfway reasonable is if legislators put a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot that makes absolutely clear that the Kansas Supreme Court can't close schools.

I don't think this is necessary, because I don't believe the Court has that power anyway. 

That said, I'm not certain even something as basic--already a part of law-- and reasonable has a chance of getting through the Kansas Legislature. Whatever occurs, it's going to take a majority of votes. That's a tall order.

At this point, it's all a question of who will cave first. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I know the answer. Legislators can look to their leader--Sam Brownback--as an example.

Just a shameful display all the way around, because it ensures that from now on, all funding will be forced to pass through the money-grubbing hands of a bunch of lawyers selected by secret committee. And there's no amount of funding that will ever satiate that beast.

I'm disgusted that Brownback, a guy who doesn't have to stand for reelection, has decided that negotiating with the terrorists is the wisest step.
