KC Biz Journal: Kansas City sends 'happy meals' to Republicans' spring meeting
"Julie Sally, a spokeswoman for the task force leading the city’s convention bid, said the group is sending more than a hundred happy-meal-shaped gift boxes to members of the RNC in Memphis, Tenn., for the party’s spring meeting. She said the packages contain small, Kansas City-related mementos, including sweets from Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates and treats from Three Dog Bakery Inc."

Fast food stunts are usually the last resort of burned out corporate creative types and I'm almost guessing that this lame idea came from a tragic brain storming session wherein among white people who thought too much about the fast food antipathy of First Lady Michelle Obama and imagined that contrasting that view would "shift the paradigm."
Instead . . . Kansas City marketing proved, vapid, generic and run-of-the-mill for a party that nobody in this town really wants.
