Good News, Pat Roberts is Retiring! Bad News, Kris Kobach or Ajit Pai Could Replace Him!

The list of Kansas Republicans interested in succeeding Roberts in 2020 features the predicable rogues gallery of terrible politicians—Mike Pompeo, Kris Kobach, Derek Schmidt, Roger Marshall, and Kevin Yoder. If those men aren’t bad enough for you, Matt Schlapp (chairman of the American Conservative Union) and Ajit Motherfucking Pai (chairman of the Federal Communications Commission) have also been mentioned as potential replacements. Gag.
