Kansas providing fodder for late-night comics

kansasgreetingsIt is no surprise that late-night comics are having a field day with recent bills in the Legislature. But it is still painful. Kansas was featured twice in a segment on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” called “The States: Meth Labs of Democracy.” Stewart led off by mocking the spanking bill proposed by Rep. Gail Finney, D-Wichita, which he described as allowing parents to “hit their kids harder.” He later piled on the House-passed bill that would allow people, including government employees, to deny services to same-sex couples, or as Stewart called it, the “no-cake-for-gays bill.”
