Check out our annual Weeper awards. They are designed to recognize extraordinary achievement in the area of public fiascoes, flops and foolishness. Here are a couple of the winners:
The “Great Moments in Kansas Oratory” Award â€” To former Kansas House speaker Doug Mays (in photo), who said that Wichita attorney Alan Rupe, who was representing schools in the state funding lawsuit, could “shove it up his aâ€”.”
OK, so it wasn’t the Lincoln-Douglas debates. But Dick Cheney would approve.
The “Dr. Kinsey Sexual Pioneer” Award â€” To Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, who explained to a rapt but puzzled Wichita courtroom that he thought a boy performing oral sex on a girl is probably a sex crime worth reporting, but not a girl performing oral sex on a boy.
Teenage boys everywhere celebrated Kline’s testimony with high-fives! Right on, dude!
