How about he's out of there. The rating left out was irresponsible.

What these buttheads in Washington don't get is that they are elected to serve their constituents and represent their constituents' views. How is that accomplished? By showing up and voting!!! I don't give a rats ass if Senator Sam gets a single vote in Iowa. Show up and vote in the Senate; that's what you're getting paid to do. Since he wants to be president so bad let's give him the "gong" some next senatorial election. What do you say?

This poll should have a box marked "Unacceptable"

Well, I was going to say that he wasn't elected by Kansas to run for President, but then I realized that logicsound04's 8:14 post makes a helluva lot of sense...

It probably is helping to keep us all safer and our rights (what are left of them) intact...

Poll question: What do you think of the political objectivity of the Journal World?

He's hardly alone. Clinton, Biden, Obama, McCain - the list is pretty long. If our system required resignation from an office that a candidate to be would not be able to fully discharge before campaigning for another office, there wouldn't be 20 some candidates for President in the 2 major parties. Can't be 2 places at once.

Brownback will not be reelected. He needs to go on the prayer breakfast circuit.

Godot 10 years, 10 months ago

I'll back a candidate who sponsors an amendment to the consitution that states that a person who holds office must resign that office while campaigning for a higher one. This is only fair.

It appears as if "manslagt" has gone and got himself kicked off again. Shocker.

Kansas voters are being cheated. We have 1 and 1/2 senators representing us. Other presidential candidates manage to make it back to vote and make sure that their constituents continue to have representattion!

"purplesage (Anonymous) says:

None of them are from Kansas, so there was no particular reason to bring them up. I'm reasonably sure that if you trolled through Arizona's, New York's, Illinois's, and Delaware's online newspaper forums, you would find some mention of them. Well, maybe not New York's, Clinton has done a pretty damned good job doing both her elected job and her extracurricular one.

So, perhaps the reason that this seems like a slanted article is because Kansas is slanted. If we had a democrat doing the same as Brownback, odds are we'd have as much coverage. Probably quite a bit more.
