TKC READER QUESTION: WHO DO WE BLAME FOR KANSAS CITY LOSING THE 2016 REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION BID?!?!
The Kansas City elite seem to be working diligently at partying with top level Republican politicos in order to lure their 2016 convention.
The latest tidbit in this hunt for a GOP local party comes from a presser put out on Friday:
"The KC RNC 2016 Bid Task Force today announced that long-time civic leaders The Honorable Peggy Dunn, mayor of Leawood, Kan., and Terry Dunn, JE Dunn Construction Group CEO, will chair the KC RNC 2016 Finance Committee."
Never mind that those two rich white people don't mean that much to anybody outside of the metro area . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS QUESTION IF DEMOCRATIC MAYORS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE STATE LINE ARE CAPABLE OF EFFECTIVELY LEADING THIS KANSAS CITY CONVENTION PUSH!!!
Here's a quote on the topic . . .
"The audience is RNC members, so, 2 democrat Mayors (???), they need to be supportive but absolutely not front and center, it simply displays that they are runing the bid and they are democrats, These fools don’t even know how silly they actually look."
Moreover . . .
Every so often mainstream media likes to pretend that Kansas City really has a shot at this convention if only to justify the exorbitant expense of all the junkets to party with GOP leadership.
And so . . .
GIVEN THAT KANSAS CITY IS SPENDING SERIOUS CASH TO PARTY WITH THE GOP LEADERSHIP TO LURE THE CONVENTION . . . WHO SHOULD WE BLAME WHEN THE BID FAILS?!?!
Mayor Sly and Chief of staff John McGurk already dismissed the white lady who started this Kansas City quest . . . So it'll be hard to hang this on her even if that's what everybody seems to want.
Rest assured, this question might put a damper on some of the partying in what everybody knows is a losing effort.
