With a Democrat as the next governor of Kansas and a Republican-controlled legislature, this would seem to be an opportunity for bipartisan cooperation in the Kansas statehouse . . . right after Kris Kobach tears up his NRA membership card.

Ultraconservatives quickly showed they had no interest in pursuing the middle ground when they successfully ousted Rep. Don Hineman (R-Dighton) as the House Majority Leader.

A political moderate, Hineman was far too critical of the fiscal irresponsibility demonstrated by the Brownback tax cuts. He’s been an ardent supporter of public education. And he dared to call the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) “political terrorists.”
