Winston Churchill is credited (probably inaccurately) with having said: “If you’re not a liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative by the time you’re 35, you have no brain.” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach tried a twist on that comment, telling a recent GOP gathering in Kansas City, Mo.: “If you’re 20 and a Democrat, you have no brain.” Kobach later told the Huffington Post that he was advocating the GOP use an intellectual approach when recruiting on college campuses: “I am not trying to insult college students. College students are won where you can appeal to the mind of the voter.” Such bluster is expected from a partisan hack, but inappropriate from someone trusted by voters with the nonpartisan role of chief elections officer for the state.
