WICHITA, Kan. - Sen. Sam Brownback will take on the title of Gov. Sam Brownback in January when he becomes the new governor of Kansas. He joins ninety-two Republicans, many of them replacing liberal Democrats or moderate Republicans, in the Kansas Legislature as the Kansas manifestation of the massive right-wing takeover of America that occurred in the Nov. 2, 2010, election. Many liberals have already bemoaned this rightward shift in the Kansas political landscape, which except for the short-lived two-L Phill Kline aberration in the early 2000s, has tended to fit into the moderate to liberal spectrum.
People laud Brownback for his stand against human trafficking around the world and against genocide in Darfur. Who can argue with Brownback's stand on these issues, stands that certainly have relevance in foreign countries? What about his stands on human rights in America? Let's just say unless you're a zygote that might be useful in stem cell research or a fetus that is causing grief for the woman that is carrying it, fuggedabuotit, as they say in Soprano-land. For you see, in SamBrownbackWorld, the only good woman is the woman who has her babies for the sake of the country, specifically to keep Social Security out of deficit territory.
