The Eagle editorial department was among those that received this week a pair of “flip-flops” â€” the cheap white sandals being distributed by the Kansas Democratic Party to highlight apparent position changes by GOP gubernatorial nominee Jim Barnett. The label on the shoe box says: “The official shoe of the Barnett/Wagle campaign ’06 (one size fits all).”
Barnett has explanations for his changing views on school finance, concealed weapons and other issues. But as Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., learned during the 2004 presidential campaign, a flip-flop label can be difficult to remove.
