The Kansas Republican Party made its ideological breakup official with last week’s formation of the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority — seemingly a moderate bookend to the conservative Kansas Republican Assembly. Predictably, the latter denounced the former as “a liberal front group for Democrats.” None of this serves Kansas Republican Party chairman Tim Shallenburger’s worthy goal of unity. Meanwhile, Kansas’ Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, newly named by Time as one of the nation’s five best governors, is enviably positioned to win re-election next year. How is that possible, given that Kansas has 783,000 Republicans and 454,000 Democrats? Because Kansas Republicans seem to be having trouble with math as well as science these days.
