The dilemma last week’s election made clear is “how do you cure stupid?” – as in voters who continue to vote against their self-interest, hyperpartisans who care not about individual qualifications, and couch potatoes who only get information from cable news.

Once again Kansans voted against their own self-interests. Kansans must like economic recessions and want another financial collapse, more terrorist attacks and more budget deficits.
Moderate Republican politicians (read “RINOs“) for Paul Davis should just go away. Better yet, they should reregister as the Democrats they really are.
I think Republicans won only because Kris Kobach disenfranchised 23,000 voters.
How many more liberal judges can they find to overturn the voter ID laws in Kansas and Arizona?
If you didn’t vote, you don’t have the right to whine about who got elected. If you did vote, want some cheese to go with that whine?
Merchants: Could we please celebrate this country’s Thanksgiving holiday first, before hammering the public with the Christmas holiday?
Finally, we don’t have to hear about OU and K-State being in the college football playoffs. Can you say “overrated”?
OK, now I know I’m in “The Twilight Zone.” Alice Cooper is a football analyst on ESPN.
