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.

Eyes and ears

Ah, to have others serve as eyes and ears -- especially when these eyes are about to take a nap.

Intrepid St. Paul-via-Wichita reporter Tom Webb reports that Matt Schlapp spoke at the Minnesota GOP delegation breakfast this morning. Webb said the former Todd Tiahrt aide, now White House Political Director "did a great job" speaking on how the GOP can win this fall.

And former Eagle reporter Arturo Garcia notes that Kansas is referred to in a popular Internet list this week called "1001 Reasons to Hate the RNC":

1000. Delegates from Kansas spotting Dave Chappelle on the streets 50 times a day.

(Note: Eight African Americans are included in the Kansas delegation.)
