Primary Day!

After all these many months, today is finally the day- the day on which Kansas Republicans get to decide which monumentally flawed candidate they'll put up against Congresswoman Nancy Boyda.

Will they pick the man she beat, the former Member of Congress already turned out on his ear once before, who is looked on as a do-nothing by moderates & conservatives alike, and who still, even after months of campaigning, has yet to come up with any legislation he supported or any bills he passed during his entire 10 year term in the United States House of Representatives.

Or, will they instead choose our light-weight, disgustingly ambitious State Treasurer, a woman who has been elected to two different offices two separate times only to then bail on her constituents to run for something bigger and more shiny- a woman who, while in the state legislature, voted to increase taxes 12 times, and who is perfectly happy to admit she knows literally nothing about our military, but will be very happy to do as she's told.

What will Kansas Republicans do? Our prediction: They're going to stick with the evil they already know. Jenkins' name recognition in most of the district is just too light for her to be able to dislodge Ryun, and while her apparent plan of smashing Ryun in Shawnee County while doing what she can to mitigate her loses in the rest of the district might have worked, she got started too late, she went negative too late...her campaign could be studied as a perfect example of an opportunity squandered.

We'll know tonight, however- and, when turnout is as low as is expected today, literally anything is possible.

Actually, you know who's willing to do exactly as they're told?

Boyda: Yes.… He is the commander in chief, Charlie. We don't get that choice. Congress doesn't make that decision.

Some areas of the state within the 2nd District will have higher than average turnout because of tough contested races (i.e. DA primary in Shawnee County).... it will be interesting to see what if any impact this will have on races

Wouldn't that overly ambitious comment also apply to Barack Obama?

so what it happened in her first week....I have to say her walking out on the General was not much better!

Did you hear that Boyda said Congress doesn't get to decide about war...that it's up to the commander in chief (i.e. BUSH)!

And that she's in the pocket of the telecomm companies (http://www.openleft.com/showDiary.do?diaryId=6570)...send her back to Misery!

Predictions for tonight:
-Ryun wins by no less than 15%.

-Jenkins picks up her ball and goes home, refuses to help during the general.

-Ryan Wright sends out crazy press releases saying that Ryun stole the election by stuffing the ballot box and says Jenkins should challenge the results.
