WHAT'S RIGHT WITH KANSAS. In addition to retaining the governorship under the able leadership of Kathleen Sebelius and the third district under Dennis Moore, Kansas Democrats picked up the second district and, even more satisfyingly, kicked out the attorney general, Phill Kline. Kline was a particularly loathsome politician who, in an effort to wrest the social con crowd, subpoenaed the records of women who'd had late term abortions. He was beaten by Johnson County's DA, Paul Morrison.
