I wish this guy really was 'typical'.
That's a plasma cutter.

Nothing warms the cockles of my heart more than a crusty 74 year old exclaiming "Gay Marriage? WHO GIVES A SHIT!"

You had me at "I think George Bush is an asshole."

This is how it is done.

Kansas is alright in my book.

I keep thinking of this guy now with breasts and a vagina, so he can get in on the argument.

If this is what's wrong with Kansas, what's right with Kansas must really be kickin'.

So, um, if Liggett really thinks abortion and gay marriage aren't any of his business, why has be been carrying water for the Republican Party for so long (witness the anti-Clinton, anti-Gore, Hillary=Nazi, Rush-For-Prez-in-1996 signs)?
Seems to me that he's just got a wee case of embarrassment over the results of six years of unchecked power from his side of the aisle.
The book that this documentary accompanies is really well-researched and very sad.
Can't be for certain, but it may have something to do with 1:33.
Or it might be that he's just a crazy old loon.
If I understand correctly, the thrust of the book is that people in Kansas don't even exactly like what the Republicans have been up to, but it doesn't matter because the Republicans have mastered identity politics. Mr. Liggett would apparently be an example of someone whom the Democrats could potentially court if they were half as good at the game as Republicans are.
Seems to me, though, that you can't fool some of the people all of the time unless they are willing to be fooled, and how do you contend with that? I suspect a lot of folks don't quite think of politics in terms of having actual visible consequences, so a person might vote for the guy who talks toughest without considering whether he can actually get stuff done, because whatever.
Then I get to thinking about Zimbardo's Time Paradox:
If you number among the "present" minded folks, you are all but guaranteed not to think your vote through.

Huh, lunatic "artists" support gay marriage.

As a Kansas, I have to say, typical is an awfully strong word. But this guy IS entertaining.
So am I. And I stand by what I say. Most Kansas have a moderate take on life that the vocal politicians on the right and left would be more than happy to gloss over.
High fives all round! Go Kansas!
I thought it was just me, Stopheles, and jrr.
I'm not alone!

"When I get a....If I ever grow breasts and a vagina..."
He almost revealed something disturbing just then.

I know exactly where that guy's place is. Highway 54. All kinds of weird sculptures and windmill things that are so specific to one buyer, I always wonder how he sells anything. There'll be like a bluebird on a motorcycle with the word "lawyer" real big under it. What are the chances of some bluebird-loving lawyer on a motorcycle cruising down 54?
By the way, I'm a Kansas.

Now this is an old fashioned Democrat. When he was a teen he probably fought against Pinkertons in strike lines with the Wobblies and Woody Guthrie.
|TimbolinoBilchard - 2010-01-06 |
I met this guy at a Christmas party in Dodge City. He's probably the cooties old coot you'd ever meet.
