I can't believe this freaking idiot has won twice. She has no platform other than opposing everything.

WOW! Our CPA beat Pelosi! She will save us from the wild spending in Washington. As long as it's not Republican spending, that's is.

it's nice to see that the forced smile "Joker" wins for voting no. Kansans allegedly don't want wasteful spending, so why do they elect this clown to go to D.C. and do absolutely nothing....Her voters are probably the descendants of the people who voted for another winner Alf Landon during the Depression. Doing nothing get's what done?

No matter. Despite the personal attacks on what she looks like, she still beat the other candidates. Like it or not (I did not vote for her either), she won. Get over it.
