Gimme an O!
The first O I’m yelling about is for Greg Orman, the Independent running against Pat Roberts. In the latest poll from Public Policy Polling has Orman up 41 percent to Roberts 34 percent. This is without the anticipated Kansas Supreme Court ruling on Democrat Chad Taylor coming off the ballot that should happen any time. Orman has been running a strong and well-funded campaign against Roberts. Even with Roberts campaign shake up, the mud-slinging hasn’t stuck and Roberts continues to slide in the polls.
The second O I’m yelling about is for the word O-V-E-R which is what Pat Roberts campaign will be when the Supreme Court rules about Chad Taylor coming off of the ballot. 10% of votes are still polling for Taylor. If the Supreme Court rules today that Taylor can come off of the Senate ballot, those votes will likely go to Orman, giving him an even wider lead against Roberts. It’s unlikely that Roberts will be able to come back after a blow like that to his campaign. I don’t care how many comparison’s to Obama his campaign ads to try to make. People in Kansas are tired of Roberts. We want a change.
The third O I’m yelling about is obstruction – for Kris Kobach’s role in all of this. Nice try Kris in trying to sway the election for Roberts. I read the line of questioning from the Kansas Supreme Court yesterday and my biggest take away from the whole thing is they can’t stand Kris Kobach as much as I can’t stand Kris Kobach. The term “loosey goosey” was used during yesterday’s hearing. Now I’m no lawyer, but you know things have gone off the legal cliff when that term is thrown into a line of questioning.
Here’s the deal Kris – I know you went to the finest Ivy League schools and you think you are all that a bag of chips, but abusing power is abusing power. The word OVER applies to how I feel about you. I have faith that our Kansas Supreme Court will find against you and I am glad to see that you are also in a tight race against Jean Schodorf.
The final O is off my rocker. I’m completely floored by the house of cards that is crumbling. First Brownback is polling behind Democrat Davis, now Roberts is falling to Orman and finally Kobach is neck and neck against Schodorf. I never thought in my lifetime that a state as Republican as Kansas would be polling like this in an election. I guess it’s pretty chilly in hell since it must have frozen over.
I guess we will wait and see what the Kansas Supreme Court rules. Even without the ruling one thing is for sure, Orman has a great shot at beating Roberts and Kansas politics is the hottest ticket in town.
What do you think? Why the sudden change in Kansas?
