Talk about stoking the border war.

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins brought a smile to the faces of fellow Kansans on Wednesday, which was the states 153rd birthday.
But along the way, she also irritated a few Missourians.
How? With a simple tweet.
It read: Happy Kansas Day! Celebrating 153 years of not being Missouri. #AdAstraPerAspera #KansasDay
Accompanying the tweet was a photo of a beautiful field of grain contrasted against a pale blue sky.
The love from Kansans poured in on Twitter.
Perfect!! Happy Kansas Day to u too!!
Winner of #KansasDay, hands down.
And this from a moderate Republican Twitter account to the ultra-conservative Jenkins: LOLOLOL, look at a Rino agreeing with the good lady.
The whole thing, though, might have come crashing down on Jenkins head if one tweet along the way had been true:
Thats actually US 36 in Missouri, came the message.
The (disappointing) reply tweet a few minutes later: Nah, just having fun with the Rep.
