Footnote: Sam Brownback is a big loser
Oh and by the way - those primaries in Kansas on August 2? In them a whole string of real right-wing types aligned with reactionary Gov. Sam Brownback - about 12 - went to to ignoble defeat at the hands of more moderate GOPpers.
This may not mean much; after all, what is a "moderate" Republican in the context of Kansas? Nonetheless, it does at least mean that people are tiring of and getting wise to Brownback's "Kansas experiment," which supposedly was going to prove the right-wing mantra that there is no problem that can't be cured by less government.
So it may not mean a lot - but it means something more than nothing.
