FINISHED: HERE'S WHY KRIS KOBACH HAS NO FUTURE IN KANSAS POLITICS!!!
He had paramount support from President Trump, the Kansas electorate has been an overwhelmingly Republican for the more than a generation, and his national media profile totally eclipsed that of his opponents -- Nevertheless, Kris Kobach managed to lose what would should have been an easy victory by way of his repellent personality and inept political strategy.
The morning after a mammoth public embarrassment from which he'll never recover, one thing is clear . . .
THE KANSAS POLITICAL CAREER OF KRIS KOBACH IS KAPUT!!!
There are a lot of reasons for this fact of life but this one is most important . . .
The toy gun parade stunt demonstrated that SecState Kobach is far too immature to hold any important public office.
The divisive ploy proved that Mr. Kobach doesn't understand anything but his own extremist ideology and that his smallish clique of supporters are equally tone deaf and myopic.
There is debate about a blue wave vs. red after the midterm but from a more practical perspective, objective observers should realize this: Kris Kobach handed State Sen. Laura "Grandma" Kelly her victory when all he need to do is play it cool and count on demographics to do his work.
And throughout his career Mr. Kobach has always been too smart for his own good.
National media proved that he really isn't much of a lawyer.
An immigration debate earned him opposition from throughout the nation and tagged him as a racist.
And his statements on education and infrastructure offered voters a glimpse of a politico with a nearly childish understanding of how state government really works.
In the final analysis . . .
Kris Kobach proves to be so incompetent and out of touch that the only place for him now is Washington D.C. and a high ranking Trump Administration job.
And so the sun sets on the career of Kris Kobach in Kansas as he is confronted with a decision: Stay in Kansas and resign himself to a dead end career of nasty talk shows or move onward to more fertile ground for divisive rhetoric that makes for great talk show chatter but is ultimately unworthy of holding elected office.
