Kansas state Sen. Barbara Bollier has never tried to look like something she is not. The Mission Hills Republican votes her district, which is moderate, and speaks her mind, conveying not only talking points but on occasion, original thoughts. Weird, right?
Both parties and our political system as a whole would be better off with more such independent operators.
But we cant say were surprised that Bollier is being punished by her party, which wants to expel her for showing she wont be dictated to.
