Fed Up With Phill?

Kansas Attorney General and radical right poster child Phill Kline went down in flames Nov. 7, losing to Johnson County District Attorney Paul Morrison 59 to 41 percent, notes Steve Kraske of The Kansas City Star. Now Kline wants Morrison's job and the big pay raise that goes with it. Are Johnson County Republicans dumb enough to pick him to serve out the remaining two years of Morrison's term?

Right wingers control the Republican Party in Johnson County and Kline is their boy, but having lost to Morrison in the county 65 to 35 percent it may well be that even for true believers Kline no longer seems the Great White Hope he did just a few short years ago.

Still, no one's gone broke yet betting against Republicans to do the right thing.
