MIDTERM ELECTION #TBT POSTSCRIPT: KANSAS CITY ROYALS LEGEND GEORGE BRETT PROVES HE'S POLITICAL POISON!!!
Right now we must focus on local connection to the Blue Wave that was actually more of a squirt for those who understand the big picture.
And so we offer this shout-out to our evening readers who are concerned with local history and the discourse:
STRIKE THREE!!! KANSAS CITY ROYALS SLUGGER GEORGE BRETT GARNERED ANOTHER LOSS THIS ELECTION!!!
Proof . . .
This Kansas City star couldn't do much for Congressman Kevin Yoder and the November endorsement didn't mean much.
Last year, let's not forget that Mr. Brett failed to win an EPIC new KCI airport contract for the so-called "hometown team" of Burns & Mac.
Finally, readers shouldn't forget that Brett was targeted with criticism for advertising weird-ass snake-oil bracelets and necklaces that didn't exactly live up to their claims.
Obviously, we love to see the beloved slugger keep up his media profile and continue to inspire online meme remix classics.
However . . .
The lesson here is simple and maybe just a bit of inspiration to keep moving forward instead of living in the past . . . A George Brett endorsement is great for getting media attention but he doesn't have much power to sway votes . . . Which might be the most encouraging thing we've seen regarding local Democracy amid this election cycle.
You decide . . .
