Ditching Mitch but Blocking Sebelius

  • Kentucky: Matt Stoller on MyDD highlights's new "Ditch Mitch" group, committed to ousting McConnell in 2008. There are over 200 members already, mostly from the Louisville area, apparently. Excellent use of social networking!

  • Kansas: While I do believe that Sam Brownback has roughly as much chance of winning the Presidency in 2008 as I do, the KS-GOP is pushing legislation that would, in the event of a U.S. Senate vacancy from Kansas, remove the Governor's (right now it's Democrat Kathleen Sebelius) appointment power and instead call for a special election. Should be a moot point in the short term, since Brownback ain't going anywhere, but it will smell of clear partisan politicking by the GOP in Kansas. (Hat tip: jgkojak)
