Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Guess Who's Back?

Guess Who's Back?

I can't figure out why anyone continues to give this bunch of political has-beens press. Like a bad sequel, the Traditional Republicans for Common Sense (RINOs) are back again. 

I really detest their name. Whenever a liberal starts talking about "common sense" they mean anything but. These are people who believe that law-abiding people like me owning a gun are a danger. They believe that every problem in the world can be solved by government intervention and absconding money from the huddled masses. They believe, despite evidence to the contrary, that global warming and evolution are a FACT and no one should be allowed to ask questions or do research if it may upend their little beliefs. These are people who think "common sense" is what someone else told them. To them, "common sense" is the exact opposite of critical thinking. It's kind of gross and pathetic, but I digress.

Traditional Republicans for Common Sense
You'll note that the group, comprised mainly of whiny losers, sounds suspiciously like a herd of rhinoceroses thundering across the Kansas plains. It's a relatively small herd, but they make a lot of noise.

I wrote about the group last October. I don't even remember what they were whining about then. Anyway, they're in the news again here, complaining that the Republican Party was "hijacked."

And by 'hijacked,' they mean that many of their members were thrown out of office on their asses, not by violent overthrow but by Kansas voters. I guess the official position of the TRCS is, How Dare They?

Lucky for them, I can explain, how dare, we the voters, throw you out on your collective rears: The third world called. They want their philosophy back.

Among the rank and file of the TRCS are former Republican Senators Steve Morris, Terrie Huntington, Jean Schodorf, and Tim Owens. They lost fair and square in primary elections last year, but they somehow think they're entitled to retain their power.

I hate to break it to them, but that's not how it works here in the U.S.A. If you peddle tired ideas, the voters may get tired of you. That's what happened. It wasn't a hijacking. Circa summer 2012, they became irrelevant -- just like the policies they were pimping.
