Kansas City Election Ruckus Tonight!!!



This evening the GOLD STANDARD of Kansas City political talk and its panel of distinguished guests contemplate the upcoming election and the consequences of a divided GOP.

This election conversation is exceptionally important as exit polling and rhetoric from pundits grows more intense:

Trump leads Clinton, Blunt-Kander a virtual tie in Missouri

KSN News poll continues to show strong support for Trump in Kansas . . . Yes, There Are A Lot Of Early Voters In Kansas, But What Does That Mean? 

Tonight's KCPT discussion is more of a thoughtful conversation for tonight that's worth consideration as Kansas City residents continue to shoot one another whilst the civic elite and chattering classes discuss the merits of looting public coffers for slightly different ideological purposes . . . Which is probably important even if the broke-ass residents of flyover country are on the hook for it all anyhoo . . .

Here's the description . . .

"Mike Shanin interviews Bill Lacy, Director of the Dole Institute of Politics, about the upcoming election. Then Ron Freeman, Mary O'Halloran, Gwen Grant and Steve Mirakian discuss the future of the GOP if they lose the presidency and both houses of congress, the current status of the Mission Gateway project and the KCMO city council hiring consultants to study the impact of tax incentives."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

The tax break talk for mission gateway was well meaning but most of these folks are out of the loop and don't know what they're talking about. Mission gateway is a disaster and the reason for it is that the board of county commissioners know they're trying to push a tax break through under the guise of development. Walmart bailed out of the effort and now they're stuck with a plan that's going nowhere. It's a lot like the hotel in downtown KCMo but a lot more deceptive because these guys aren't getting any scrutiny whatsoever.

Excellent job Mike Shanin. You do a great service for this city and your leadership in providing an important forum are one of the best journalistic offerings that Kansas City has right now. We need programs like this one. Thank you.

The should be talking about Hillary's shameless e-mails and how she is stealing the election.

I'll tell you this, Mission Gateway has been an embarrassment to all of JoCo, not just Mission.

To Whom It May Concern:

On behalf of the weekly Ruckus Reviewer, who normally comments in this space following the Ruckus posting, I regret to inform you that he/she/it will be unable to complete the task after suddenly taking ill shortly after settling in to watch this week's episode.

According to paramedics who responded to the scene, the patient was found unresponsive, slumped over in a red-white-blue Lazy Boy lounger, favorite beverage in-hand, with yellow legal pad and pen in lap. So far, investigators are only divulging the following clues:

1) the Ruckus television screen was frozen at the 6:15 mark.
2) a distressed note which had been hastily scribbled, simply read......."Mike Shanin: Why? Why would you do that?"

Btw, they started talking about the mission gateway fuckus @ 13:30.

My sincere best wishes for a speedy recovery to our Ruckus Reviewer. Probably happened when he/she saw/heard that Mary/Maury "the nouth" and Gwen/Glenn the "hair hat" were on. Get well soon.

I love that the TKC comments cesspool nerds out on Ruckus. Great Show.

10:07 My condolences.

According to my watch, at the indicated time, Mike Shanin had just announced that Yael Abouhalkah would be next week's Newsmaker guest. Am I right? Totally understandable.
