I admit, I'm still quite a bit pessimistic, and I think he unfortunately has an excellent shot of gaining a second term.  The reason is that my fellow Kansans are, taken as a whole, flippin' morons who incessantly vote time and again against their best interests. And I've said it since day 1 that there will be nothing that shocks me about what Governor Brownback will say or do.  He was a complete asshole in the U.S. Senate, and that has changed very little now that he's our Governor. If anything, he's even a bigger asshole now that he's the bigger fish in a smaller pond.

So despite my reservation on the potential negative impact this may have on his approval ratings and future election hopes, I can't help but wonder if he's gone a little too far this time:

Brownback administration pushes to repeal restrictions on corporate agriculture; opponents say family farms will suffer

Backed by powerful agricultural interests, Gov. Sam Brownback's administration on Friday pushed to repeal corporate farming restrictions, saying the repeal would grow the Kansas economy.

But other groups, such as the Kansas Farmers Union and Kansas Rural Center, said the repeal would hurt family farmers and destroy local control

Reap it, rural Kansans. You voted this turd in.  Since he's helped to screw over the poor, the kids, the elderly, females, and the disabled, maybe now you'll see how big of an asshole he is along with his Koch-bought Wingnut state Congress once they help bankrupt your family farms.

Again, sadly I have my doubts.  Because you really are that stupid.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
