This Is What's the Matter With Kansas

Sam Brownback's office scolded a kid for correctly, though jokingly, tweeting that the wingnut Kansas governor "sucked."

Only she didn't actually say it directly to the governor. She tweeted that she did as a joke. In other words, "Just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot."

But she was scolded and reprimanded anyway, even though she never said any such thing to the governor.

She was right, of course. And evidently, in Kansas, freely expressing an opinion about the governor is a scold-worthy trespass.
