What is wrong with Kansas?

Kansas State Senator Kay O’Connor

Conservatives like to point out that liberals are overly concerned about hypocrisy. It’s unfortunate. Concern with hypocrisy seems to be the liberal Achilles Heal. The GOP has no such weakness. That’s why they dominate the two branches of government and threaten the other one. They don’t care about duplicity. You have to admire them for it. As one would admire a street mime for their lack of self-loathing. It must be bliss to not loss sleep over your contradictions. You just raise the big huge all-encompassing tent and rest easy.

Kansas State Senator, Kay O’Connor has served in the state legislature for 12 years.

In 2001, O’Connor received national attention for her remarks about the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1920, which gave women the right to vote.

“I think the 19th Amendment, while it’s not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don’t approve of,” she said at the time. “The 19th Amendment is around because men weren’t doing their jobs, and I think that’s sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family.”

See the liberals will quickly point out that O’Connor is (we believe) a woman. And more so than that a female politician. But when you’re a Republican you are immune to worrying about facts like these. It’s not about women’s suffrage it’s about…men…jobs…family? I’m at a loss.

Anyway, the voters (I’m assuming some of them utilizing their 19th Amendment rights) have kept her in office since 1993 and now O’Connor is seeking the seat of Secretary of State.

Liberals take note:

Using the word ‘hypocrisy’ for members of the GOP is like spraying Raid on a Texas cockroach – it just makes them stronger, angrier and more determined to grow opposable thumbs and take over your mortgage.

    Although I do NOT admire their duplicity, I do admire their determination. It is the unbending determination and energy by the Right that the Left needs to imitate.
