In response to Iowa’s system of permitting evangelical Christians to give or withhold improved treatment in state prisons based on their opinion of whether prisoners have made adequate spiritual progress, Commenter Professor Laura Ginger writes,
I heard Senator Brownback who is running for President saying unbelievably frightening and moronic things on NPR yesterday, making the argument that this prison project is constitutionally OK. “What’s the Matter With Kansas?” indeed!
Professor Ginger is too kind: Brownback doesn’t just say moronic things but actually does them. Thus, we find the Senator spending time in prison (well, it was bound to happen, wasn’t it?) to make the point how great it is to force religion down people’s throats when they can’t defend themselves.
