I admit, I'm still quite a bit pessimistic, and I think he unfortunately has an excellent shot of gaining a second term. The reason is that my fellow Kansans are, taken as a whole, flippin' morons who incessantly vote time and again against their best interests. And I've said it since day 1 that there will be nothing that shocks me about what Governor Brownback will say or do. He was a complete asshole in the U.S. Senate, and that has changed very little now that he's our Governor. If anything, he's even a bigger asshole now that he's the bigger fish in a smaller pond.
So despite my reservation on the potential negative impact this may have on his approval ratings and future election hopes, I can't help but wonder if he's gone a little too far this time:
Brownback administration pushes to repeal restrictions on corporate agriculture; opponents say family farms will sufferReap it, rural Kansans. You voted this turd in. Since he's helped to screw over the poor, the kids, the elderly, females, and the disabled, maybe now you'll see how big of an asshole he is along with his Koch-bought Wingnut state Congress once they help bankrupt your family farms.
Backed by powerful agricultural interests, Gov. Sam Brownback's administration on Friday pushed to repeal corporate farming restrictions, saying the repeal would grow the Kansas economy.
But other groups, such as the Kansas Farmers Union and Kansas Rural Center, said the repeal would hurt family farmers and destroy local control
Again, sadly I have my doubts. Because you really are that stupid.
