(Earth to Chuck: No. To borrow from John Cleese, Boehner is not pining for the fjords.) What coupld top this?

Leave it to Kansas . . .

As October snows hit the western part of the state, the Kansas State Supreme Court suspended the law license of former Kansas Attorney General and Martyr to Teh Anti-Abortion Cause Phill Kline.


Kansas Secretary of State Has Election Issues of His Own

By: Saturday March 5, 2011 9:00 am

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach campaigned heavily last year on stopping voter fraud by illegal immigrants and manipulation of elections by “unscrupulous attorneys.” Fast forward to last Thursday, when the FEC accepted an audit of the Kansas Republican Party’s books during 2007 and 2008 that shows illegal contributions from businesses, misstatements of contributions and expenditures, and undisclosed expenses for delegates to the 2008 GOP national convention.
