It's not that hard a job, so most of us could do fine in it as long as you are honest.

Fred Phelps would be a better governor than Brownback. 99.99% of Kansans can tell that Pfred is barking mad. Only around 75% can discern the same thing about Brownback.

KansasTwister,Don't sweat the mail thing. My mother has written to Boyda at least three times this year alone and has yet to receive a reply.

Mackadoo (Anonymous) says:"Where was the "Hell, no!" option on this poll?"I asked the same question when I looked at the options.

Considering how completely useless most of the Senate is, I support all of them living unemployed for the rest of their lives! Democrats and Republicans.

Sam could get Ryun to organize his campaign. I hear he has some great re-election ideas left over.

I have written to Brownback's office at least 6-7 times on various issues since he has been in the Senate. However, I have only received one reply!!! In my opinion, he will NOT make a good governor for Kansas.

Maybe if he had some "community organizer" experience, he would be easier to accept.

I certainly don't want yet another nut case who, if allowed, would establish a christian theocracy in Kansas. The republicans tried running just such a candidate against Kathleen and look where that got them.Elrond

I hope this is just a rhetorical question. When I saw it a chill went down my spine.

Mackadoo, that was funny. If they couldn't do "he-ll no", then maybe an option for "when hell freezes over?"

Where was the "Hell, no!" option on this poll?

Yeah...Brownback will make a good governor the same way Palin and McSame would make a good Pres and VP.Is this question a joke?

I grew up in Topeka, and my brother was on Sam's son's soccer team for several years, so I know Sam is a good man. BUT...I also know that he is an awful Senator who tried his best but as the old adage goes; 'power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely'. I can't imagine Sam getting elected Governor of Kansas. Would he do a DECENT job (I use that term very loosely), maaaybe.As for KansasTwister, I know that I have written Sam's office numerous times, often without referencing my brothers relation to Andy, his son, and have gotten back a fairly quick response. Boyda on the other hand...........Don't get me started.

Yeah just what this state needs, a religious zealot as leader. Perhaps we should just break away from the union and declare theocratic rule - the difference between that and a Brownback governorship would be minimal.

I read a note written by the button on one of those hot air hand blow dryers in the truck-stop outside of Topeka that sums it up for me:"Stand by for a message from Senator Brownback"Another backwoods D.C. wind-bag is definitely NOT what KS needs.;)

Dinky -I guess he would be great at anything if he had been mayor of Cawker City. Maybe he would have been VP material.

I find it funny that Brokeback continues to want to "serve" the people.Since he so eloquently espouses "family" values how about coming home to Kansas and doing your family duty?
