Lyrics in Warren Zevon's classic "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" go, It don't matter if I get a little tired/I'll sleep when I'm dead. Kris Kobach, Kansas secretary of state, may not have this line tattooed on his forearm, but it's pretty clear that it reflects his attitude toward work. "Some people golf in their spare time. I defend American sovereignty," the man who never stops working once said. In addition to fighting imaginary voting by dead people for his day job, Kobach is defending laws in Pennsylvania and Nebraska that crack down on illegal immigration. He told Newsweek earlier this year that he wrote Alabama's new "show me your papers" law in a turkey blind near Gardner, Kansas. Forget his politics, which border on the fanatical. Any politician who can draft legislation on a laptop while holding a shotgun is devoted to his work. And when Kobach dies, he'll finally catch up on all the sleep he's missing now. And then he'll vote.
