Kansas' new lieutenant governor is maybe kind of a birther

Sam Brownback is no longer the governor of Kansas. He is now the United States Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, which in the Trump Administration probably means he travels to third-world countries and explains the Old Testament to warlords and murderous dictators while brokering arms deals. Brownback's lieutenant governor, Jeff Colyer, has replaced him. Colyer is a plastic surgeon from Johnson County, and he has lately been putting political points on the board simply by not being as horrible and dumb as his predecessor. Kansas was incredibly secretive under Brownback, and Colyer has made transparency a priority. To applaud Colyer for this would be like throwing a party for me when I pay my electricity bill on time. But Kansas is starved for good news from its government. So OK.

On Tuesday night, Colyer ó who will face a crowded primary in his run for governor this year ó announced his new lieutenant governor. His name is Tracey Mann, and he lives in Salina and works for a commercial real estate company based in the Kansas City area. He'll be sworn in on Wednesday.

In 2010, Mann ran for U.S. Congress and lost in the Republican primary to Tim Huelskamp. During that race, Mann said some weird and vile shit.

*At a candidate's forum, Mann said that President Obama "should show his birth certificate" to "resolve it one way or another."

2. Can the Kansas legislature ever come back to some semblance of sanity?

There seem to be a number of states that are sinking into the crazy quicksand.
Just had dinner with a friend last night whose son lives in Wisconsin. He is a Democrat. Says they canít find anybody to run against Walker. Nobody wants the angst. The Dems are pissed.
I am devastated.
I keep hearing about people running against Ryan. Hope that, at least, comes to fruition.
