Brownback's foolproof plan

Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., joked during a meeting in Lawrence Monday that he had a foolproof plan to win the governorship in 2010. He recalled how he recently met with members of the Dinka tribe of south Sudan. They told him that they have 10 members in their tribe who play basketball and are more than 7 feet in height. "So I'm thinking, if we can get three in Kansas — one at KU, one at K-State and one at Wichita State æ.æ.æ. this is all over."
