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.

Prince and politics

Ahhh, August, with monsoon rains in our nation's capital and little politics to report. I'm about to head to for a pre-Prince concert dinner, hoping the streets don't look like downtown Venice by the time I get to the MCI Center.

Pat Roberts now says his Porter Goss confirmation hearings will start the first week of September. Democrats aren't likely to put up a huge fight, with election-year dynamics putting them in a bind. Jim Ryun's son Ned is getting ink as a board member of Redeem the Vote, a group attempting to get Christian youth involved in the 2004 election.

And finally,with Kansas moderate Republicans getting used to their 3rd District candidate, Kris Kobach, a Kansas City alt-paper has this unique take on the Kobach-Taff race. Shades of McGreevey?
