TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! ANNE McGREGOR CONTEMPLATING 4TH DISTRICT RUN AGAINST JIM GLOVER!!!



It seems that we might have a fight in the 4th District after all . . .

To wit . . .

KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS REPORT THAT COMMUNITY ACTIVIST ANNE McGREGOR HAS BEEN "WORKING THE ROOM" AT IMPORTANT KANSAS CITY POLITICAL GATHERINGS AND HINTING @ ANOTHER 4TH DISTRICT AT-LARGE BID!!!

Even better . . .

WE HEARD ANNE McGREGOR WAS TALKING TO ALL THE RIGHT PEOPLE @ THE FREEDOM INC. X-MAS PARTY!!!

Background on McGregor for those who might not remember: She's a former community organizer for Prez Obama, a Democratic Party volunteer AND one of the architects of the former Kansas City Mayor Funkhouser recall attempt.

Now, let's be realistic . . . McGregor faces an uphill battle against 4th District At-Large Incumbent Jim Glover.



Just a few facts which indicate Glover greatness . . .

- He earned an ASTONISHING 50K votes last time out without the purchase of a single yard sign and only minimal advertisement. Like it or not, people remember Jim Glover and vote for him out of habit.

- Jim Glover is a master debater. Really, he's MORE IMPRESSIVE IN PUBLIC FORUMS THAN MOST PEOPLE REALIZE despite the fact that he has more than a bit of longstanding opposition.

- Kansas City Establishment Loves Jim Glover - Generally, we think Jim Glover is a good guy but it's not a knock against him to note that he's the most entrenched Council Dude of all when it comes to local civic elite culture. JIM GLOVER IS THE GO-TO-GUY FOR THE 1% and this fact explains why he has spent the vast majority of his adult life on the City Council.

Are there keys to victory for Anne McGregor?

Nothing is impossible . . . Here's what has to happen:

- She'll have to exploit any voter resentment against the status quo . . . She might be the only chance for OPPOSITION to the toy train streetcar plans to find a voice.

- Anne needs to remind people that the "Glover Plan" was more than 20 years ago. Councilman Jim Glover talks a good game about economic development but the greatest example of his work comes from too long ago for voters to appreciate.

- McGregor is on the right track by STARTING HER CAMPAIGN EARLY . . . A long campaign that hitches itself to Glover's name is really the only viable strategy against a Councilman who virtually defines Democracy in Kansas City.

The odds aren't in McGregor's favor but Kansas City voters should be in for a treat as 4th District fighting among differing factions of the Democratic Party in a non-partisan election are always fun.

There's your high water mark TKC, in the form of a closet pervert that actually gets off with blog graffiti.

Guess that service job is freeing up some time 613?

Is Anne married and is her man going to come in here kicking all our butts like that Wilson dude? Is he union as well?

Did Glover wash his jacket in hot water?
McGregor is a kook. But Glover is a boring, unaware, halitosis-ridden egomaniac so the 4th loses either way.

We all behave differently when alone. Anonymity frees us from a perceived obligation to act in accordance with certain social norms. For example, most people refrain from picking their nose in public, but dig with abandon when alone. This isn’t revelatory – fear of judgment is a powerful motivator and is well documented by psychologists.1 So, while most of our anonymous behavior is relatively benign, what happens when it isn’t?

In 1981, Leon Mann published a study documenting the phenomenon of suicide baiting.2 Studying the circumstances surrounding 21 public suicide attempts, Mann observed that in 10 cases victims were jeered and baited to, “jump!” He identified several contributing factors to this anti-social behavior including membership in a large crowd, the cover of night, and relative distance from the victim – all hallmarks of anonymity. The irony here is that while a focused set of watchful eyes keeps us in check, the distracted eyes of many don’t.

Anonymity makes all the difference, and unfortunately, this frees some to partake in some pretty egregious behavior. This is particularly true online. We’re 20 years into the experiment of the World Wide Web, and we can clearly see how Internet anonymity plays out across social media, chat rooms, and comment sections. Usually just a nuisance, anonymous troublemakers, known as trolls, can be dangerous when they go after the vulnerable. In an effort to better understand what makes them tick, psychologists are starting to take a closer look at the psychology of the Internet troll.
