  •  I grew up in Wichita (14+ / 0-)

    Born and raised a Wichitan.  It's funny how I didn't realize just how crazy conservative that city is until I moved away and started school in the liberal college city of Lawrence, to which I still live in to this day.  Actually, I really don't think Wichita was quite as nutty as it is now.  But I tell ya, if it wasn't for my folks and brother living there, I wouldn't be going back there for any reason.

    I know it sounds a bit snobbish, but I freakin' love Lawrence.  And of course one of the biggest reasons is it's a nice little Blue oasis amidst the Red Sea of dispair.

    And yes, I think the wave of Wingnuts in office, including Brownback himself, has a great deal to do with the current state of affairs including your dread. Unfortunately, I don't see widespread change occurring anytime soon, because even if we get Brownback out in 2014, it'll take at least a few election cycles to stear the Wingnut twits out of the state Congress and move it back towards the middle. So as a whole, we are indeed screwed at least for the immediate future.
