On a related note, we had a GOP Unity show here after the results of the primary was announced. Taff said he supported Kobach and swore he would do everything possible to help him win...and then left town on a belated honeymoon for a couple of weeks. Some of the moderate party leadership were hemming and hawing after the primary as well. Looks like the Kansas GOP is still warring with itself, and that doesn't bode well for Kobach. I'm still expecting another two years of Moore.
Besides all Moore does is go around and steal lupins for the poor.
I grew up in the 3rd district and my lawyer works for Moore's old firm. Kobach's ad is a very starting point and IS in fact the type of issue that will win over "moderates" in the 3rd district.
HMM Is Kansas MORE or LESS Conservative than Missouri?
73% of Missouri voters just voted to Ban Gay Marriage. If Kansas voters tend to be more Conservative than Missouri voters, then this is a winning issue for Kobach and an excellent way to get swing voters.
This is the type of article that I would like to refer back to after the November election, just to see what happened and who won. I'm sure I will completely forget about it by then, however (unless I write myself a note). It would be nice if account holders here at FR could place a "timer" on a bookmarked article which would send an automatic ((ping)) at some designated day or time in the future. For example, I would bookmark this article and set a "timer" on it so that I would automatically be pinged back to the article two days after the election.
Is something like this "timer" idea do-able as a possible future upgrade, or am I talking programming nightmare here? Thanks.
I don't know about the liberals in that part of the country, but around here you don't bother calling them liberals - they're communists. Nothing more, nothing less, just communists. I guess ours are "out of the closet".
Makes them much easier to ID when necessary in the future.
We do know that the campaign manager for Rob Boyer's unsuccessful bid to oust Kay O'Connor now has a Dennis Moore sign in his yard.
I'm going to be optimistic. Kris Kobach will give Dennis Moore a fight that will, at the very least, be fun to watch.
In the general election, Kobach wants to portray Democratic U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore as a raging liberal who could vote against something as American as the Boy Scouts.
Wouldn't that make them more "flaming liberals" than "raging?"
