Letter to the editor: Bananas

To the editor:

Upon viewing the mob storming the U.S. Capitol, former President George W. Bush said the scene was like something from a banana republic. What name could be more fitting than Banana Republicans to designate congressional Republicans who supported President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the election and further incite the mob? Congressional Banana Republicans from Kansas include Sen. Roger Marshall and U.S. Reps. Ron Estes, Tracey Mann and Jake LaTurner. Such a designation would distinguish them from other Republicans, such as Sen. Jerry Moran.

Bill Dodd,
