Senator says article doesn’t interest him

March 2, 2006


U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback said he hasn't read the recent article about himself in Rolling Stone magazine.

"I have not read it," Brownback said Wednesday. "I don't plan on reading it. I did think we would get a fair story out of it. I participated with the writer. I don't know what was on my mind."

Brownback said several people have told him the story was inaccurate and that they didn't think it was "a very quality piece."

The magazine's recently published article was titled "God's Senator."

It asserted the Kansas Republican "seeks something far more radical: not faith-based politics but faith in place of politics. In his dream America, the one he believes both the Bible and the Constitution promise, the state will simply wither away. In its place will be a country so suffused with God and the free market that the social fabric of the last hundred years - schools, Social Security, welfare - will be privatized or simply done away with."

Brownback made his comments about the article during a teleconference with Kansas reporters.

Other things that do not interest him are the desires of the American People, and the Constitution.

Today he is probably voting for the work amnesty bill and will sink us all."The committee will begin by considering the Specter proposal that contains an unlimited guest worker amnesty program which invites the entire illegal alien population of 11-13 million to participate. Moreover, neither the illegal aliens nor new guest workers will be required to return to their countries of origin once the "guest" work period ends, because the legislation gives the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security the authority to waive any required departure. " No wonder our Social Security is in trouble.

More people DON'T read rolling stone than DO read it. What is it? A serios magazine or comic?

If every Tom, Dick and rolling stone was writing articles about me, I wouldn't read ALL of them. Only narcissists would even try.

Nor would I read articles about you. Sorry, but it's true.
