TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! MEET THE TOP KANSAS CITY IRISH POLITICAL POWER BROKERS!!!



Amid so much celebration it's important to think about Kansas City political traditions.

Clueless suburbanites and a great many white people don't remember that the Irish mob once ruled Kansas City. While those days are long gone and it's hard to find much Irish-American culture in the mainstream outside of the delicious shamrock shake . . . In Kansas City there's still a strong political connection with the past.

Accordingly . . .

ON THIS SNAKE SATURDAY WE CELEBRATE THE IRISH HERITAGE OF SOME OF KANSAS CITY'S TOP POLITICAL POWER BROKERS!!!

Of course there are many locals who claim Irish heritage because it's synonymous with white but we selected this list because these folks actually have a connection to the last remnants of Kansas City's Irish Community.

Take a look . . .

Former Councilman And Mayoral Contender Mike Burke


Mike Burke has a list of contacts that nearly as extensive as the Almighty and he has been a longtime player as an attorney and biz power broker in Kansas City for more than a generation. Currently, his new venture combines tech, art and biz and stands at the forefront of the "silicone prairie" movement. There are few people in Kansas City as politically skilled as Mr. Burke. He has maintained his elite political status through hard work and a very astute and personable style. Example . . . Everyone in the political world was BEGGING Mike Burke to attack Sly James but that never really happened. Mr. Burke's level-headed approach to a Mayoral election resulted in defeat but in the aftermath he was rewarded with key appointments and unparallelled access to the Mayor's office at the outset of a local tech (financing) boom. More than anybody other long-term power player in Kansas City -  Mike Burke understands Kansas City's political landscape and that has led to not only long-term survival but also incredible success.

Opinion Maker Mary O'Halloran


Mary O'Halloran's roots run deep in Kansas City and her advocacy doesn't just stop with Democratic Party politics but also includes women's causes.

Consultant Pat O'Neill


Pat O'Neill's work has defined Kansas City politics for more than a generation. Even better, his family dedication to Kansas City's Irish community is responsible for ongoing festivals that celebrate the glory days of this town's Celtic ruling class.

Public Policy Expert Patrick Tuohey


Kansas City's Centre-right political guru, Patrick Tuohey has been in town long enough to help defeat one light rail initiative and attempt galvanize a semblance of anti-tax opposition from an often lackadaisical pool of local voters who treats every election like a popularity contest.

Journalist Michael Mahoney


Kansas City political insiders know that local issues don't become important until Mahoney reports on it. Mahoney is the last of the Kansas City Insider journalists who has access to virtually every political office in the metro area. He's fair but his gift for making local politics exciting is why he stays winning.

From St. Paddy's Day festivities to Irish Fest . . . You'll see these Kansas City power players staying in touch with their roots when they're not busy working to define Kansas City politics.

Patrick Tooey is lame and sucks.

Does anyone actually read Tuohey's little blog? He doesn't really seem to matter when it comes to KC politics.

Jeebus, would you racists and haters take the fucking month off and watch college hoops?

It's called a life.

Enter a pool. Root for a team.

Even talk to a woman in a respectful manner.

Perhaps find a place of worship.

The answer is no, no one reads Patrick Tohay's blog. The only reason Tony gives him air is because he has a soft spot for these freak show libertarian outcasts.

N.A.G. [Neighborhood Action Group ] had more to do with the defeat of Light Rail than Patrick.
But Patrick is doing better now with his knowledge.

Patrick Touey needs to learn more about KC before he acts like he is from here and can speak on our issues with authority.

A "place of worship"??? You have to be kidding. You mean a place to donate whatever money they can fleece from you for whatever bogus plan or project that works this month. See anointing oil, prayer cloths, prayer lists, season for healing, etc. Each and everyone a sure fire fund raising bonanza...Fucking thieves. Yeah, YOU find yourself a "place of worship", you fucking dirtbag.

Miss 7:38 is a mother fucking pussy.

@ 2:45 read carefully said...

2:45 FYI...calling people "racist" has lost it's appeal. Now if you disagree with a nigger, your called a racist. It falls upon deaf ears. So you and your fellow Izod'er wearing, latte sippers can go fuck yourself, or in your case, molest a little boy in the back of the parish "garden of love".

I'd say the half dozen turds who are floating in the punchbowl pretty well cleared out the party.

You better do something, Tony. I expect you're losing your audience again.

You need to clean the pool once in awhile with your delete key.
