SPRINGTIME FOR KANSAS CITY RUCKUS!!!



Tonight the GOLD STANDARD OF KANSAS CITY POLITICAL DISCOURSE has a show that's so PACKED with political talk that they were brave enough to start out with some artsy chick . . .

Check the description . . .

"Mike Shanin interviews Johnson County Parks & Rec Executive Director Jill Geller about the upcoming grand opening of the Arts and Heritage Center in the former King Louie building. Then Pat McInerney, Danedri Herbert, Crosby Kemper III and Mary Anne Murray Simons discuss the push for a single terminal KCI, the search for a new Kansas City Police Department chief and negative media coverage of Trump."

Credit to Crosby Kemper III for calling out Pat McInerney's vapid defense of no-bid corruption that's part of Mayor Sly's silly scheme . . . No matter how breathless of a defense, there's simply no justifying a RIGGED process.

Take a look:



You decide . . .

once again Mike Shanin proves that he's one of the last few remaining journalists in Kansas City.

One of the best programs in KC and ESSENTIAL viewing for anybody who cares about our city.

Hope this program doesn't get cut now that public broadcasting is facing reduced funding under the new budget from President Trump.

The need to turn this show into a cage match and oil up the guests.

Pat McInerney is a clueless fool!

And finally, someone tell these idiots that KCI airport users pay for the airport, not Burns & Mac or KCMO taxpayers! You will pay if you fly, you won't if you don't!!

Burns & Mac "stepped up" because that thought they had bought the City Council with $100s of thousands in campaign contributions, not because they are good citizens! Maybe good citizens of Leawwod!

Remember McInerney was and probably still is Sly's lawyer. So what do you expect him to say. He will be getting some legal fees thrown his way.

The show has been shit now for years. Nadler (RIP) was the best guest in the show's history. Mike Shannin needs to go; his sell by date expired about 5 years ago. Cancel this crapfest and bring back Check Please.

Any Ruckus without Mary/Maury and Gwen/Glenn the "hair hat" is a good Ruckus.

WELCOME TO TERMINUCKUS!!

1) You know it's going to be a good program because Crosby Kemper is on the panel.
2) Mary Anne Murray Simons has her very best Ruckus appearance ever! I was totally amazed to hear her articulate what has been a rushed Burns and McDonnell proposal that puts them and their attorneys in the driver's seat. She is exactly correct, and called for the city to solicit open transparent competitive bids for any terminal work.
3) Patrick McInerney does a face-plant attempting to serve as Mayor James surrogate once again. McInerney, who once prosecuted corrupt government officials, before switching sides to defend them, was paid out of the Sly James For Mayor campaign funds ($65,000 I believe) when defending Sly James tax non-compliance. McInerney regurgitates the FAILED PREPOSTEROUS notion that a company who presents an unsolicited bid for city construction projects must be granted exclusive no-bid rights. What an embarrassing argument to make!
4) Leave it to Crosby Kemper to disclose the fact that Burns and McDonnell has cultivated a special relationship with Mayor James, whereby they donate money to candidate James, and he grants them special favors.
5) Danedri Herbert dares mention that the proposed Burns McD terminal has FEWER gates than the existing infrastructure. A billion dollars to downsize? Anyone?

There are 3 competent panelists discussing the terminal issue, and then there's McInerney on the other side. Mike Shanin? He's always competent.

Roast and Toast
Since McInerney broke protocol and made it personal, we'll just note that if he's getting married again, it means he must have blown up his prior marriage! So much for being a good Catholic.
TRIVIA QUESTION
What does Patrick McInerney share in common with Sly James and Jolie Justus? James and Justus are both 2X losers in marriage. Democrats who are self-centered narcissists tend to put themselves before everyone else, even family.

A lawsuit to force the bidding open seems inevitable.
