I could make sense of nearly everything about statewide elections in Kansas, but for one thing: Kris Kobach. So before going much further, let me take a shot at explaining that one.

Mr. Kobach, as you probably know, won election Tuesday as Kansas’ next attorney general. He did so essentially by muzzling himself, not making a show as he has in previous campaigns, running around in a Jeep with machine guns, ginning up anti-immigrant laws around the country, talking nonsense about election fraud.
