Here's the word from our alternative bloggy community . . .
Kansas City Protesters Have The Power And Potential To Change Local Democracy
Protests that continue into tonight and this weekend among mostly young people on local streets offered a look into the future. Like it or not, Conservative and Progressive politicos will be courting these voters in the coming years and perceptions of this youth movement are more powerful than the current reality. After a big voter turnout and widespread dissatisfaction with the status quo . . . Nobody can claim to know the future except that an electorate with wildly different standards is taking hold of the Democratic process.
Congressman Cleaver: Unbeatable
He has won a 7th term in Congress and this elected official remains the most powerful in Kansas City while all of the speculation surrounding his tenure will continue for years.
Missouri State Senator Rizzo Last Man Standing Among Kansas City Democrats
John Rizzo was the only newly elected Democratic State Senator in Missouri and his working-class politics and community support proved more important than the culture war in D.C. and on TV.
Congressman Kevin Yoder: King Of Johnson County Politics
Democratic challengers talked a good game but were easily defeated by the beloved Golden Ghetto political denizen who can walk the line between RINO and more reactionary denizens of the suburban enclave.
In Celebration Of White Guys!!!
Caucasian dudes are taking it on the chin (nullus) in the aftermath of Trump victory.
An example from GQ:
With President Donald Trump, Angry White Guys Won Again
This media pile-on is only acceptable because it comes from angry progressive white guys on the other side of the aisle who lost at the hands of their former 1st lady and her e-mails.
Here at TKC we want to assure you that you're one of the good ones!!! And blaming people for the TV election show is about as pointless as non-swing-state voting.
But I digress . . .
As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.
