In Denial

David Klepper of the Kansas City Star reports that Kansas Education Commissioners Bob Corkins dismisses as “speculation” the possibility — some would say strong likelihood — that he will lose his job once moderates take control of the state Board of Education in January.

Some will find Corkins optimism strange given that members of the new moderate majority, which will be seated in January, have promised the voters that removing Corkins will be their second order of business -- right after fixing the science curriculum mess left by the former fanatical fundamentalist majority.

RSR, however, doesn't find Corkins' sense of denial about his future prospects at the Department of Education particularly surprising. A firm grasp of reality has never been his strong suit.
