Super PAC Follows MO of Doomsday Prophets

Yesterday, a shadowy political action committee gave tens of thousands of dollars to a cheesy Washington D.C. political consulting firm called Candidate Command to send letters to large numbers of voters in the first congressional district of Kansas, telling them that U.S. Representative Timothy Huelskamp shouldn’t be re-elected to Congress this year.

The Geographical Relativity Of Congressman Doug Collins

Yesterday saw a rare warping in the physical dimensions of space, when U.S. Representative Doug Collins rose to give a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives. The speech was entitled, “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore, Toto”. Learned readers will already know that the House of Representatives is in Washington D.C., not in [...]

A Congressman Swims Naked In An Israeli Lake. So What?

Let the voters in Yoder’s district hold him accountable because he’s voted against greenhouse gas limits that would prevent future devastating droughts like the one his constituents are currently suffering through. Skinny dipping, though, is simply not politically relevant. [...]

Kansas House Speaker Presents Test Of The Power Of Prayer

Schlingensiepen and McCollough are themselves pursuing a nasty path of Christian theocracy as they state that it is unacceptable for anyone in public office to “abuse” the Bible, to cite their holy text in a way that they don’t approve of.

What if I told you that the U.S. government could do something to stop this bioterror threat? How would you react if [...]

Could AgroDefense Harm Agriculture More Than BioTerrorism?

By placing the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Kansas instead, the Department of Homeland Security will be placing agricultural disease pathogens right next to the plants and animals they are adapted to infect. [...]

Fundamentalist Christians Infiltrate US Army To Build Power Base

Pro-war Christian fundamentalists like to say that the military is defending our freedoms, but the truth seems to be that Christian fundamentalists have usurped power within the military to attack Americans’ freedoms. [...]

Kathleen Sebelius The Smart Choice For Obama VP

Kathleen Sebelius seems a much more attractive candidate for Vice President than Hillary Clinton. She isn’t divisive. She’s strong, yet dignified. She shares Obama’s Kansas roots, and would bring Electoral College victory by adding midwestern states to the classic blue Democratic territory. [...]

Ayatollah Joseph F. Naumann Tries To Take Over Kansas

Archbishop Naumann’s own statement makes his agenda clear: He wants to use his religious power to pressure public government officials into making the Roman Catholic Church’s religious teachings mandatory, not “optional”, for all residents of the state of Kansas. [...]
