NOT EVEN CLOSE: SECSTATE JASON KANDER GUN TRICK STAYS LOSING MISSOURI SENATE BID AGAINST BLUNT!!!
There's a lot of things to learn from Missouri SecState Jason Kander's defeat at the hands of incumbent Senator Roy Blunt but the most important thing might be the viral videos are neat but don't influence voters.
In the aftermath of his sound defeat, Kander's gun trick was celebrated throughout the nation but amounted to little more than preaching to the choir and quick entertainment for Youtubers who didn't vote anyhoo.
First and foremost, let's not forget that TKC was the first and only media outlet in Missouri to note that Kander's entire candidacy was based on a broken promise lie about his current job and nothing good can come of that kind of unanswered inconsistency.
Secondly, Senator Blunt did a good job connecting Kander with Hillary Clinton which hurt Democratic Party contenders far more than they realized. Again, we noted that Kander didn't help his cause by marching arm in arm with radical leftist Elizabeth Warren while trying to build Conservative credentials.
The fact that Kander was still pushing his millennial rhetoric until the bitter end and even after his defeat is a sign that he still might not get it.
But here's something more important . . .
NOBODY CARES ABOUT MILITARY SERVICE!!!
More accurately . . .
KANDER'S FAIL PROVES THAT A MILITARY RECORD ALONE ISN'T ENOUGH TO WIN OFFICE FOR A DECIDEDLY PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE IN RED STATE MISSOURI!!!
As we've noted before with soldiers from both Conservative and Liberal backgrounds . . . Voters aren't electing somebody to stand a post. Kander's rhetoric touting his military service seemed like as much of a gimmick as his Youtube gun trick. At the zero hour . . . Red state voters valued shared political principals rather than the effort to help an elected official who put his life on the line to protect those ideals.
Even the most avowedly patriotic souls turning their back on a veteran should be a teaching moment not only for Kander's political future but also for all those hobo veterans freezing in Kansas City streets this winter.
You decide . . .
