    I'd love to see Goyle win this. When was the last time you even had a Dem rep? I can't recall...

      Dan Glickman was the Representative for years. Wichita used to be a big labor town with aircraft manufacturing, but the crazies out-organized us and they've done a better job driving the message.

      I'm just glad Tiahrt is gone, what an absolute disgrace he is.  When I first moved into this CD last year I went to his site to read up on my new Representative.  It was filled with attacks and invective on the "Democrat" party, and I was so deeply offended I wrote him and reminded him that he represented me, too, and my taxpayer money was funding his site.  To his credit, one of his aides in DC phoned me to apologize.  But he still sickens me.

        I remember Glickman's name but wasn't sure which district he represented.

        I presume you've seen the blog, The Idiot Factor: Tiahrt's Folly?

        Tee hee:

        Rarely has it been necessary to dedicate an entire blog to the stupidity and ignorance of one House of Representative member, but Kansas’ own Todd Tiahrt is just such a man. Using fundamentalist churches for support and relying on pure graft and corruption to keep his office, this man needs to be exposed at all times for his ignorance and miss-use of his position.

        The blogger posts fairly regularly. I love it.
