Stand Up and Salute!

Red State Rabble readers have been hearing a lot lately about the shock and outrage experienced by Johnson Countians when they learned that right-wing Republican activists chose former Attorney General Phill Kline to finish out Paul Morrison's term as prosecuting attorney.

Morrison beat Kline all across Kansas in the attorney general's race last November, but he beat him especially badly in Johnson County where 65 percent of the electorate voted to send Kline packing.

It's just that they never expected that he'd be moving in here.

It may be difficult for readers outside Kansas to fully grasp the kind of buffoon Kline is and why Kansans have grown to dislike him so.

Perhaps this story, told by Steve Rose, chairman of the Johnson County Sun papers, offers some insight:

Phill Kline arrived on his first day of work and made his first announcement to his staff. He instructed them to call him “general.” That is the salutation given to the attorney general.

After Kline got that all important item out of way, he fired eight staffers.
