CELEBRATE VICIOUS POLITICAL FIGHTING THROUGHOUT THE KANSAS CITY METRO!!!
According to the world's most accurate encyclopedia and one of the very smart TKC commenters who mentioned this quote previously . . . Sayre's law states: "In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the value of the issues at stake."
Moreover . . .
On 20 December 1973, the Wall Street Journal quoted Wallace Stanley Sayre as: "Academic politics is the most vicious and bitter form of politics, because the stakes are so low."
Obviously, the guy was a stranger to Kansas City metro suburban politics.
Accordingly . . .
Thanks to a series very eloquent and detailed pressers sent to local media, just about every news outlet picked up this "scandal" over $800 bucks and trophy-biz controversy . . .
YOU DECIDE: WHO WINS THE SLEAZE SUMMIT GRUDGE MATCH . . . CHRIS MORENO OR THE WHITE LADY?!?!
Sadly, Mr. Moreno has yet to learn throughout the course of his career that a politico can be "right" and still lose.

Tell us if we're wrong here and society suddenly stopped valuing middle-class white broads above all else . . .

No idea what this story is about and not sure anybody cares . . . 50K TKC Bonus points to anyone who kept reading past the part about biz cards printed in Chinese.
What's important here is that not so long ago Mr. Nolte was one of the lead anti-immigration advocates in Missouri and here's where it landed him.
Finally . . .
No new developments on this front but somewhere KCK Mayor Mark Holland and UG Commissioner Ann Murguia are preparing for another round of slap-fighting over an issue that most of their constituents don't care to understand amid a spate of recent murders . . .
And all this is simply to demonstrate that political dysfunction doesn't stop in the urban core and (in an era when Hillary & Trump represent the best this nation has to offer for Prez) just about every American governmental body is well on the way to looking like Taiwanese Parliament.
