Because you are one of the many busy, important and attractive people who read this blog, you probably don't have time to read the tripe that the Funkhouser Administration is posting on their blog.
Well, you're only missing out on one important thing . . . The diary of Mayor Funky's Daughter.
Sadly, it's not as scintillating or EROTIC as I had hoped from a liberal broad going to college back East but her sense of entitlement is astounding.
And before I go any further . . . I have to stress that I had some reservations about writing a hit piece regarding the Mayor's daughter but those concerns were slowly put to rest by the fact that the Mayor himself has offered her up as "one of his representatives" and if she's old enough to hang out at Westport clubs showing lots of cleavage then she's old enough to be called on the B.S. her family has pulled on Kansas City.
Just like Mayor Funky's witchy wife, I don't remember anybody voting for Tara the Tart.
Her recent excursions all over City government (escorted by that sellout Crispin-what's-his-name who has been seen so close to her that he could probably get a whiff of her drawers by simply inhaling) have elicited quite a bit of grumbling and nasty e-mails to TKC about the appropriateness of her prancing around City Hall like she owns the place.
Even worse, Mayor Funky has sent her out to meet with community leaders who have also expressed a bit of discontent that their concerns are being met by somebody on summer break . . . Neighborhood leaders have worked years to build relationships with their community and City Hall, most of them are older folks and having a 20 something tart show up to "hear their concerns" is tantamount to an insult - Mayor Funky would know stuff like this if he hadn't been hiding under his desk for the past 30 years and wasn't just getting his feet wet when it comes to community relations.
Additionally, I think this is yet another example that Mayor Funky isn't at all loyal to his propaganda about "regular folks" given that he's running his office like a family business. For a moment, lets forget that rumors are swirling around that he has actually turned to his wife during public meetings and asked "What do you think?" And let's just focus on his hottie daughter (yeah!) . . . It's the perfect example of white privilege . . . There are undoubtedly young women who are being denied the opportunity to serve in City government because Tara's daddy wanted her to see how his office worked while other interns or more qualified people who could be doing the same thing that Sweet Tart Tara does are sent to the back of the line . . . I'm no feminist but I'm pretty sure that having a broad's Daddy put her in a prominent position related to City Affairs is probably one of the classic attributes of the patriarchy.
And to put it plain and simple: It's pissing people off. City employees, Neighborhood leaders and community activists have better things to do than babysit the Mayor's twenty something daughter. As I noted previously, City government isn't a family business and it's not a project suitable for a "How I spent my summer vacation" essay either. If the Mayor's office wasn't filled with inexperienced people, yes men and women who are VERY interested in Tarot Cards then they probably would have advised the Mayor more carefully on this topic and kept Sweet Tart Tara from interloping at City Hall.
