This is for all you costal elite mamby pamby women, and your soy boys, out there who don't have any concept of how the rest of the nation functions.
Somewhere down there in flyover country are the people who you stereotype as gun-loving, Bible-reading, country music-listening, traditional-marrying
rednecks. But they're not. They actually enjoy classical music, so get bent jackweeds.
Our next guest knows how the real world operates and can do things that the rest of you cannot, like child rearing, housekeeping and plowing. She can
seed the back forty and still have enough time to chicken fry a steak. So put down your gluten free, vegan, organic, locally sourced, fair trade
quinoa smoothie and welcome Ketsuko.
AM: As a native of Kansas which programs do you like to see your state’s net Federal income tax surplus go to?
KS: Federal income tax surplus? News to me. How’d that happen? Basically, a surplus should never happen. If it did, they took too much away from us,
so maybe, they should give it back.
If they can’t, it’s a lost cause. The teachers would cry and sue and the state supreme court would award it all to education. Usually, that’s a
good thing, but in Kansas over 45% of the state budget goes to education.
AM: Why would a state in flyover country name a city after Manhattan? Is San Francisco next?
KS: Only if Lawrence feels left out because it's Lawrence and not San Francisco. But really, we all call it Manhappiness.
AM: Speaking of San Fran, what’s your favorite sanctuary city?
KS: Aren't they all?
AM: When Trump won the election you….
KS: ...shrugged and mainly said, "This is why we still all go and vote." Honestly, I was just mainly relieved we were spared Hillary, but I was never
a huge Trump fan.
AM: Are any of your relatives Hillary supports and would you make them Hemlock Salad if they came over for dinner?
KS: Ha! I would guess a good chunk of my dad's side of the family starting with a certain aunt and her Prius-driving, Obama bumper-sticker-sporting
brood, but she and her daughter are the only really politically obnoxious ones, and truthfully, they've been obnoxious about everything ever since I
Hemlock salad? Nah ... I'd go more for that food poisoning in Airplane! About the time the uncontrollable flatulence set in, I'd feel like revenge was
well and truly served.
AM: Tariffs; good or bad and why?
KS: I love the idea of free trade. I really do, but it has to be real free trade doesn't it? Where husband is at, he gets a good look at the down and
dirty in international trade, and we very often play against a stacked deck. Free trade, in other words, isn't really free.
Not exactly an answer, but in another way, it is.
AM: Who do you feel has the best chance to win the Presidency from Donald Trump on the Democrats side?
KS: Someone we haven't even seen yet.
AM: Who has a better chance of making it into a bowl; the Wildcats or Cheerios?
KS: Over under on the homeside says we could get a 7-5 season +/- 2 depending on how the WR core and certain elements on the D-side shape up. The
other glaring weakness exposed at spring game is that for the first time in the Snyder era, we seem to not have a competent kicker and/or punter which
hamstrings our always impeccable special team play.
Cheerios are always reliable to get into a bowl, but let's be fair ... in today's BCS environment, your team has to be freakin' dead to *not* make a
So unless the entire team falls over wracked with injuries and our best offensive weapon ends up being a JUCO WR transfer who suddenly discovers he
can QB ... (referencing the injury fiasco of a few seasons ago), we should easily be able to equal the Cheerios.
And you never discount the ability of zombie Snyder to figure out how to win with darn near any collection of anything suited up to play.
