The national media is shocked I tell you, SHOCKED that conservative Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback is happy that Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has been nominated to lead health and human services. Pundits are busy reading tea leaves as to what this could possibly mean.
What does it mean? It means that Sebelius will be tied up in Washington, D.C., probably won't run for the Senate against a hapless Republican and won't be campaigning for whichever Democrat takes on Brownback when Brownback finally runs for governor.
Obama's announcement today has the Kansas Republican Party dancing in the streets.
