Not all people of Kansas elected him twice or even once

As a person who lives here, in an area where he barely carried the majority (actually, he may have lost in our precinct), with all the representatives in our area agreeing with me about everything and getting nowhere in Topeka, this sounds like a really cruel comment. It's like when GWB won (or "won&quot and all of the United States was seen as foolish abroad. Brownback had all the support of the Koch Bros and won highest in rural areas and with pro-life and anti-immigration voters who are in every state and make those their priorities. If we look across the state line at MO, where there is a Democrat in the governor's seat, the legislature is also dominated by rural Republicans and they pass absurd laws. In a polarized situation, saying that all the voters of any place deserve what happens is unrealistic. Brownback is part of a national trend--visible in Indiana and Wisconsin, too, and all the people in both those states are not fools, either. Nor are they in Mississippi.
