Kansas City Digs Up Ronald Reagan Clip To Pitch Local GOP Convention 2016



Kansas City invokes Republican folklore and splices with stock footage in order to bring Republicans to this town:



The "All Roads Lead To Here" could be the most prosaic pitch that this town has ever devised and it makes Kansas City sound more like purgatory than a destination . . . Which at least represents a hint of truth in advertising.

More in a bit . . .

Uncle Ronnie was a disgrace and a one of the greatest charlatans who ever held political office. No wonder Sly likes him.

Regarding TKC posts published on Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 11:49 a.m.; Friday, May 13, 2011 at 4:47 p.m.; and Monday, May 16, 2011 at 8:00 p.m.: This blog is retracting those entries, and they have now been deleted from the archives. In the context of a tense debate over the MAST ambulance merger into the Kansas City Fire Department, this blog reported and offered commentary on arguments from anonymous tipsters aimed against former Local 42 Union President Louie Wright. TKC acknowledges that the claims were not verified and that such claims should be viewed as baseless. TKC agrees with, recognizes, respects and acknowledges Mr. Wright’s assertion that he has never profited from any charity work for the United Way or any other charitable or not for profit organization, with which he is or has been affiliated. Moreover, TKC would like to apologize to Mr. Wright for any distress caused by the posts.

Reagan wears the sombrero because he loved Mexicans. You should like him TKC.

Reagan loves the Mexicans and that's why TKC loves him.

Reagan was the guy who claimed trees caused more pollution than automobiles.

Not very honest since they didn't include the KCPD chasing thugs off the Plaza or the morgue guys loading a body into their truck after a downtown shooting outside some dumb ass club.

After a few stiff drinks even a shitty video looks interesting.

I remember that guy from "76". I blew him in the men's room by the elevators at Crown Center. He kept moaning "I'm the president...I'm the president".

Ronnie had more style than any current GOP member.

If anybody thinks the GOP is going to depend on PR information from KCMO to in any way influence their decisions about where to have the convention, they've been listening to Sly and the gang way too long.
Unlike most of the local public, these folks can tell the difference between chicken salad and chicken crap and all the local rah rah and baloney isn't going to cut any ice.
The convention will not be coming to KCMO and we'll all find that out just as soon as the GOP swells use the bidding to wring as much out of evvery city that they can.
It's kind of like how the folks at city hall leave every negotiation with developers wearing nothing but their socks and a smile, except these guys are REAL pros!

Reagan's monologue in Death Valley Days was a guarantee the Marlboro Man would make President!

Did Polar Bear peddle Viceroy's?

Notice how they sanitized the video and their campaign of the word "Republican"?

Picture:
That's no sombrero!
Reagan commonly carried around a large grinding stone on his head, so as to keep his mind sharp. Eventually though, to much gray matter was worn down and he developed dementia.

Little known facts in history.
