Pat Roberts is dancing like a fool with right-wing ideologues who want to elect one of their own to the Senate.

In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy assessed the odd things she was experiencing and said to her little dog, "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

Lately, Sen. Pat Roberts has gained a new understanding of what Dorothy meant.

The Kansas Republican has been in the Senate for 18 years and was in the House for 16 years before that.

So he's been away for a long time, and now that he's running for another six-year senate term, Roberts has learned that the Kansas he thought he was from -- a state of relatively moderate, Eisenhower-style Republicans -- has become the Political Land of Right-Wing Oz.

1. I hope he loses

If you can't be true to yourself and your beliefs then you deserve to lose.
