Come visit Kansas, Mr. Ag Secretary

Passing notes is apparently the way to go in Washington.

Kansas congressman Jerry Moran didn’t miss a chance this week to invite ex-Iowa governor Tom Vilsack, President-elect Barack Obama’s nominee for Agriculture Secretary, to visit the Sunflower State.

Moran said during a meeting, “I extended a written invitation” to Vilsack “so he could discuss issues with our farmers and ranchers in the state.”

Of course, Moran could have had good reason for making it a written invitation.  Perhaps he included directions on how to get to Kansas.
