CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY SPECULATION ON GOP ERIC CANTOR DEFEAT AND THE REVENGE OF THE TEA PARTY!!!
Already TKC doesn't want to hear what Dead Tree Media Newsies have to say about Eric Cantor's defeat . . .
NEWSFLASH!!! HARDCORE CONSERVATIVES STILL HATE MEXICANS EVEN IF IT MEANS THE GOP WILL NEVER WIN THE WHITE HOUSE AGAIN!!!
Local implications . . .
I notice very smart Kansas City Insiders reminding us that Kansas doesn't use the same open primary system so this really doesn't mean much for the Kansas slapfight . . . Despite how much newsies will be forced to write about Dr. Milton Wolf.
Moreover . . .
This recent wave of immigration that everybody hates is actually Central American . . . On the bright side, here in Kansas City we're seeing more Hondurans, folks from El Salvador and Guatemalans because this town is still a transit hub even if I-35 and the airport is really thing keeping KCMO viable.
Local impact . . .
Have you tried a pupusa? They're fantastic and maybe the only real world implication and benefit that we can all enjoy while talking heads debate the mass migration of people that has mostly been unstoppable since theythe dawn of human history.
But most importantly . . .
DESPITE THE BIG WIN . . . LOCALLY THE TEA PARTY REMAINS POWERLESS!!!
Their rallies are embarrassing and they haven't elected anybody worthwhile locally. EVAR. . . . The fad might be catching steam in other parts of the nation but in KCMO the tea party remains a collection of nobodies.
