About Last Night…

Greetings from Possum Hollar!

The rat was all greased-up, and then… nothing. Kobach lost his Senate Bid and so the news, if anything, is that Kansas Senate will probably stay on Team Evil for 2020. This doesn’t automatically mean that amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell still has his filthy turtle paws on the gavel for the next Congress, but… we have to work harder on the other Senate Races to de-thrown him.

Electoral Vote:

Lots of voters cast lots of votes in lots of races on Tuesday. However, the election that everyone had their eyes on was in Kansas, where control of the Senate might plausibly have hung in the balance. There, Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) trounced the rather unelectable Kris Kobach, 40.3% to 26.3%, presumably ending Kobach’s political career for good, and also reminding us that ratfu**ing rarely works. As a bonus for the GOP, voters also sent Rep. Steve Watkins (R-KS) packing. His recent indictment might have put that seat into play if he had advanced to the general election, but instead the candidate will be Kansas Treasurer Jake LaTurner.

I completely forgot about it and did not watch any returns last night.

    Them Rethugs are thicker’n ticks on an old coon dog, in Kansas. It may slowly turn purple over the next decade or so, but the FB friends I have, who reside there, and are politically active, say it’s a Sisyphean endeavor, although some “persuadables” are turning. Conservatism, and active neo-cons are alive and kicking, and those stubborn old “clodhoppers” remain set in their ways until their dyin days.

    Here’s a quote from the guy who they think is less problematic than KKKris:
    “Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’” Marshall said in the interview. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”

    No offense, but why does Kansas matter? Dorothy left there a long time ago.
