THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! SHOW-ME FACT CHECK AMID MISSOURI SENATE FIGHT: TRUMP ONLY HURTS BLUNT AS MUCH AS HILLARY HELPS KANDER!!!



Local mainstream media and Democratic activists across the nation are looking down ballot in Missouri and hoping that a nasty controversy involving Trump will help upstart candidate Jason Kander unseat Senate incumbent Roy Blunt. It's a good theory but isn't supported by anything more than partisan taking points.

We sent a question to a somewhat high ranking Kansas City political consultant today and this was the reply . . .

"Connecting Blunt to Trump is a good move by Kander but I'm not sure it will be successful. It opens him up to his connection with Hillary Clinton. Don't forget, Blunt has only given his tacit support to the GOP nominee but Kander has voted with Hillary on Obamacare, he's a high ranking member of her Missouri campaign committee and supports her gun control efforts. If we're going to compare who stands with with their party's Presidential candidate -  Kander is far closer to Hillary Clinton than Senator Blunt is to Trump . . . And Missouri has spoken loud and clear about its dislike for Secretary Clinton."

What's interesting in this instance is to see how quickly some Kansas City media hacks take to this Kander press release and hold it up as fact . . . There are a lot of reasons to pick Kander over Blunt but exploiting this trash tv controversy doesn't seem like it's moving the needle among Missouri voters.

Chuck, SuperDave, Another Midtown Mom and even Byron too . . . None of them pulled any punches in order to offer REAL WORLD insight into how this controversy plays in Kansas City.

Admittedly, this blog values bold statements over culture war antics and this meme catching on among local ladies is kinda funny and references the roots of our Democracy:



As for down ballot implications . . . Playing up unwise comments for political gain is a ploy perfected in a past Missouri Senate race and we've long noted that Hillary is just running an updated version of Missouri's McCaskill vs. Akin match with a dumb comment to hold over the opposition.

Still, Both Missouri and Kansas remain solidly Red States and it's unlikely that anything is going to change that . . .

And all this inspires our playlist tonight . . .



As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday Night . . .

Yeah I'll bet you did.

Because if you actually had this would have been his response:

And have you twist my words around into something unrecognizable? Leave me alone, you give us all the fucking creeps, weirdo.

Kander will be back in KC early next year and his wife will find him a cushy do-nothing job at the Kauffman Foundation where he can park plotting his/her next big career move.
These kinds of hungry egos never go away.

The Missouri U.S. Senate race (Senator Blunt vs. Kander) can be compared to the national Presidential race (Trump vs. Clinton).

I'm a political Independent, not enamored with Trump, but will gladly vote for him, as under no circumstances would I ever cast a vote for another Clinton. We know Clinton is anathema to all Americans but the super-wealthy and corporate oligarchy. We're willing to take our chances with a President Trump.

Likewise, in Missouri, Senator Blunt may sport some warts, but he'll be getting my vote, because once again, under no circumstances would I support Kander who's fully supported the Obama/Clinton economic torture upon Americans, while destroying multiple countries (Iraq, Ukraine, Libya, Syria).

Kander will score well in St.Louis and KC, but Blunt will dominate in Springfield and the rest of the state. Most Missourians can't relate to Kander, a Liberal Hillary-lover from Kansas, Jewish, married to a woman from the Soviet Union, who has repeatedly lied to voters, while supporting higher taxes, bigger government, abortion, gay marriage, and gun restrictions.

BLUNT wins 65 to 35.

In Sunday's Presidential debate, you know Hillary and the corporate media moderators will attempt to pound Trump on the recently leaked sexist comments he made 11 years ago during a private conversation. Trump should go on a full frontal assault, listing Bill Clinton's rape victims, Hillary's long list of crimes, all the oppressive regimes which donated to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for favors, the phony Clinton marriage, Hillary and Huma's 20-year domestic partnership, Chelsea Clinton's true biological father, Clinton's selling military secrets to the Chinese, and helping the Russians secure uranium stockpiles, etc.

This is great information. It should be one to talked about for decades.this debate is one of wills not just egos and passion. Drama and facts. Hard to act your way out of a lie when the truth stares at you inch to mile. Weird and wonderful. Benny and the Jets vs. electric moves set to stun. Wake up world your strait jacket is ready. You feel unclean after watching, and you liked it. You were occupied. Thanks for the facts. Someone's going to be owed the Pulitzer Prize. The other a repressed memory. Weeks to the final judgement day or crises...somebody is having that long ride to the airport. Ask the Magic 8 Ball who to vote for....

Idiot 10:40

Is that why you're supporting a misogynist, so stupid rednecks won't think you're gay?

Flying the MISO Flag was one of the ways that gay men hid their sexuality in the bad old days.

How do you know that Trump isn't gay?

How do we know that you're not gay?

Idiot, does this count as popping off?
