Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

Cowboy hats and hair spray

"This is election is a choice between a cowboy hat and hair spray."
-- Sen. Pat Roberts, speaking before last night's Travis Tritt reception in his honor.

Roberts had the night's best quote. Not faring so well was Kit Bond, who criticized John Kerry for backing an amendment that would have set SUV standards at 36 miles per hour, he said. Thinkin' he meant per gallon -- I don't think SUVs will move that slow 'til someone comes up with the M1 Abrams model.
