KANSAS CITY FRIDAY FACE-OFF!!! WHICH MAYORAL CANDIDATE HAS BETTER FRIENDS??? QUINTON OR JOLIE?!?!?
To paraphrase Kansas City's favorite suspected war criminal from meth town: If you want a friend in politics, get a dog.
But just like cute puppers, posing on social media with colleagues lends credibility and maybe even garners a few votes.
To wit . . .
WHICH KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATE HAS THE NICEST FRIENDS?!?!
Thanks to a dweeb in the comments, we noticed that Quinton Lucas is proudly standing with newbie Kansas Congresslady Sharice Davids:
This one is from a little bit back but let's not forget that former Mayoral candidate Jason Kander offered his endorsement of Jolie Justus for Mayor and posed for "Women's March" moment of glory even if he hasn't really done much to help since then . . .
And so . . .
IN THIS VITAL COWTOWN PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE: WHO WINS THE KANSAS CITY FIGHT FOR FRIENDS?!?!?
To make things even more complicated . . .
The creative class, Ward Parkway snobs, corporate lawyers and d-bags remodeling their houses seem to side with Jolie Justus.
Whilst social justice warriors, law school & liberal arts students, along with urban core activists favor Quinton Lucas.
We joke but the frenemy political face-off grows increasingly intense as otherwise progressive voters attempt to justify their selection that alienates at least one important demographic in the vast rainbow of Kansas City identity politics.
You decide . . .
