(Kansas City)   Two high school students in Kansas are running for governor there. Mostly because serving as governor would look slightly better on a college application than "worked at Walmart"   ( kansascity.com) divider line

The current governor made them feel like they'd be more than qualified.

Let's take a look, shall we?

White? Check.
Blonde hair? Check.
Blue eyes? Check.

Running as a Republican? Check.

Is there data to show "Kansas Governor" looks better on a resume than "Walmart Greeter?"

Because I'd like peer review...

Kansas has nothing to lose, really.

To be fair, winning the Republican primary is the best path to the governorship of Kansas.

close enough to what I wanted to say for me to just say, this!

I'd say he couldn't do any worse than Brownback, but then, this new kid IS still a Republican.

They can always put, "At least it's not Oklahoma" on the resume.

They should just run Pitt the Younger. Or maybe go all the way and run Pitt the Even Younger.

You're 18 and you want to *stay* in Kansas???

Good for them. Hope they have a heap of fun and shake things up a bit.

Can hardly do worse than some of the ones already in power.

Might be more a matter of it being pretty much impossible to go down in history as the worst governor in any context after the recent guys, though.

Interesting enough, Trump is doing so Pope of a job that they're starting to say that he's an undercover Democrat in the comments section of Fox News.
 
2017-09-24 01:36:24 AM  
They have a much better chance at winning than the last joke candidate that ran for governor there...

So blasphemous of a job?

It's a Duck Soup scenario. They want to show they can run a campaign, but if they win they're too busy to go to college.

Brownback?

There's no reason to think "Governor of Kansas" is a plus on anyone's resume, subby.
 
2017-09-24 02:27:35 AM  
But it's Kansas, so not that much better than 'Walmart Greeter'...

Brownback is what you get if your bike has no rear fender and you ride through a mud puddle.
 
2017-09-24 05:23:13 AM  

Good


\You want young people involved in politics? This is what it looks like
\\Mhairi Black is better than 90% of the politicians in the UK or the US

I thought that to brownback was to give someone who hasn't had a chance to... um... clean the pipes, so to speak, a really good bareback assfarking, and then wipe your shiat, lube, and jizz covered dick on their back when you were done.

He moved up to be the ambassador to God or something like that.

Governor of a state: feather in the cap

Winning election in Kansas: black eye

My sister and her family used to talk about moving to St. Louis with us, to leave Kansas.  Then Missouri got Gov. Greitens.. that seemed to put an end to that talk.

Sounds like a challenge I'm sure the next Republican governor will happily accept.

Ruzich said that he would not be governing by himself and could rely on experienced advisers and cabinet secretaries for help.

Hmmmmm...... this sounds familiar for some reason....

Hopefully these two don't get into the same situation as the last teenager that ran a government.

Interesting on how you can hold office in many states even though you aren't old enough to vote or even the right species.

It's always so windy in Oklahoma, because Kansas blows and Texas sucks!
