Diatribe on the politics of Governor Brownback and others

"Under the theory that the best form of welfare is a job, the Brownback administration has made it more difficult for poor families to get welfare — the number of people receiving it has dropped by nearly 45 percent since he took office."

"Under the theory that the best form of clothing is formal wear, the administration has made it more difficult for poor people to get overalls."

"Under the theory that the best form of housing is four-bedroom homes on one-acre lot, the administration has razed the state's tenements and shacks."

"Under the theory that the best form of food is caviar with lightly buttered toast, the administration has made it more difficult for poor families to get catfish."

"Under the theory that the best form of air is unpolluted, the administration has issued mandatory rationing snouts to reduce inspiration of damaging polluted air."

In other words, we should have better sense. But we don't.
