Alaska’s GOP Senate leader has Kansas roots; Roberts on climate change; Brownback gets endorsement


Joe Miller, the tea party and Sarah Palin favorite who leads incumbent U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Alaska Republican primary, is from Kansas. His website states: “He grew up in a working class family in Kansas.”

U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., quoted in the Topeka Capital-Journal this morning on the issue of climate change. “There’s no question there’s some global warming, but I’m not sure what it means. A lot of this is condescending elitism.”

The Kansas Agri-Business Retailers Association has endorsed Republican Sam Brownback for governor. Brownback, a U.S. senator, faces Democrat Tom Holland, a state senator from Baldwin City. The Association’s 700 members include agronomy services, chemical, fertilizer, seed sales and manufacturing companies.

Apparently Senator Roberts thinks Earth is an elitist.

We don't need no stinkin' science! http://creationmuseum.org/ These folks, and perhaps Senator Roberts, think the old Flintstones cartoon is a documentary.

Why do politicians think they are qualified to argue science with scientists? What kind of pompous, self-important egomaniacs are these?

So the Tea Party candidate might defeat the Republican candidate??? You know, I could get to like this Tea Party thing. Most anything to divide and fracture the Republican Terrorist Party would be to my liking!!!!!
