Republican implosions

This party will self-destruct in 30 seconds.

It's like watching sports bloopers or car crashes, you know its kind of sick, but you can't help but giggle.

The bombs?

First, we've got Phill Kline going against his word and staying in the Republican primary for Johnson County District Attorney. Forgotten how crazy Phill is? Just watch this video.

Then of course there is the drama of Sen. Tim Heulskamp recruiting primary challengers for several Republican leaders in the Senate.

And my personal favorite, former GOP executive director Ron Freeman's lawsuit against the party.

It seems his contract said he could be fired with 30 days notice. But expert lawyer Kris Kobach says that he COULD be fired with 30 days notice, not that he had to be given such notice. Everyone knows such clauses in employment contracts exist to give employers flexibility.

Anyway, Freeman is seeking 27,000 in lost wages and commissions. Hate to break it to ya Ron, but you can't get blood from a turnip.

The significant problem for the Kansas GOP is that the majority of traditional Republicans (voters) can not even recognize their own party, today. It is no longer the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower; it is now the party of liars and theives (capitalists & big business). And to the growing extent that the New Democratic party has become aligned with capitalists & big business, it is no different.
