FORMER FIRST LADY GLORIA SQUITIRO AND OUSTED MAYOR MARK FUNKHOUSER WELCOMED BACK TO KANSAS CITY WIR!!!



Thanks to a FIRST IN TOWN review from Super Dave and the sharp commentary of our blog community, we clowned the former KC "first lady" and her the legacy of her FAILED politico henpecked husband.

Some locals may not remember but Mark Funkhouser was the first KC mayor to lose a reelection bid in 70 years. He didn't even make the primary and was booted by voters early in the game.

Recently . . .

KANSAS CITY WEEK IN REVIEW PAYS TRIBUTE TO OUR TKC FIRST CONVERSATION AND HOSTS A CHAT WITH THE FORMER COWTOWN CO-MAYORS!!!

The self-published work of Ms. Squitiro really isn't important, instead, it's more fun to see public TV and all of the cash invested by their patrons basically enjoying our blog community scraps.

The description:

"Nick Haines talks to Mark Funkhouser and Gloria Squitiro, former KCMO Mayor and First Lady, about the new book May Cause Drowsiness and Blurred Vision."

Take a look at the clip that has a whole 1 view on Youtube before we got to it:



And then, sadly, notice that the show didn't put much effort into the local news conversation this week with a scaled back panel and drastically reduced conversation dedicated to much more important local issues.

You decide . . .

Given all that I know about Sly and what he has done to KC.

I still wouldn't vote for Funkhouser.

Having some guy's wife run city hall is still worse. TKC, don't forget that her temper cost KC taxpayers more than half a million dollars.

i Wish they would tell us what they think of the current failures running city hall, now that would be a fun show to listen to.

Developers and liars and crooks hated these two.

Funk didn't do to bad considering he was stuck in the middle of a global economic meltdown.

Wonder where the reunion with his city council colleagues will be? That will be a fun event to crash!

Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out
Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about
Well the names have all changed since you hung around
But those dreams have remained and they've turned around
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
Back here where we need ya
Yeah we tease him a lot 'cause we got him on the spot
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back

Funkhouser may have been the worst Mayor KC has ever had, as you people say, but...

on the positive side, the City was in better financial shape, fire and ambulance response times were shorter, there were fewer potholes, and we didn't have a streetcar or bike lanes;

but on the negative side there were fewer killings in the Inner City when he was in office.

We went from funkouser to now looking at putting a lesbian and her “partner” in charge. Why? Because of liberal white guilt. Anytime a “person of color” or a homosexual now runs for office the effeminate males of kcmo are quick to rush for support. This city will make advances in some areas but overall it’s beta city USA.

Someday ...this city will need some financial oversight once again.
Thanks Funk!

Funkhouser's campaign motto was "A city that works for regular folks." He had campaigned on a promise to pay more attention to neighborhoods and to end corrupt TIF deals with special-interest developers.

Obviously the local status quo hated that.

Mark was better at being mayor than Byron is at his job. Oh, wait. I forgot that Byron doesn’t have a job. He mooches off the government at the expense of people who pay taxes

MO said...

^^^^ Truth

Byron Funkhouser said...

10:06If that fantasy makes you feel better, than have at it.

I am not "mooching off of the government"; I am receiving the benefits that I earned, & was eligible for, & therefore applied for, & was therefore awarded, without your unnecessary approval. Of course, I've had jobs.

Mark Squitiro costs Kansas City $500,000.

That's more than me.

(They're still in denial.)

Ok, mooch.

Yes, I'll agree Gloria has nice hair. But she's still pretty mean and nasty. Much tougher than her henpecked husband. If you support Funk, you really support her in charge.

The guy posting at 10:06, 10:09 nd 10:27 acts like he' ever had a job. Notice that he never posts until the Libraries have opened.

@10:36, you mean as opposed to the "wonderfulness" we have now with Sly and Troy in charge?

Another Midtown Mom said...

I like Byron sometimes. May not always agree with him but he seems to have more of backbone than Mark.

Gloria is doing damage control on TKC.

Too bad, you still cray girl. Go back to D.C., you're not needed in Brookside anymore.

They are married, right? Why is his last name funkhouser and her last name squitiro? One of the weirdest last names out there.

Kansas City hasn't had a good mayor since Richard Berkley and even he wasn't all that good. Under his watch he let downtown, the Liberty Memorial and the KCPS rot. The suburban population grew astonishingly under his and Cleavers watch in the late '80s and early '90s. And of course Crime in the '80s was high here.

Wheeler was mayor when KC was a major player and not a sleepy midwestern town. It's sad that the people of KC can't vote for people to make the city better. And looking at the two clowns we have running things won't change much in KC in the future.

^^^^^You crawl out of the basement much? Many and I mean many women nowadays keep their maiden name after they get married.

I like Mark's comment about the BS. He was spot on with that comment about KC. He is spot on with the recession comment too. You all that live in KC who think it sucks now well let me tell say you ain't seen nothing yet as they say. Look at all the BS under Sly's terms. Jolie has already started her BS. Yes the BS (Build Something) is going to destroy KC financially to a degree folks here will want to move to Detroit.

Byron you lie again! Lets see if you're so fucking smart as you would like us to think you are and can spot what you said that is so very wrong. You are so delusional you're even starting to believe your own bullshit and lies.

I MISS THE FUNK!

Listen starting at 5:45 mark, concerning KCMO finances.

He was never flashy, deceptive, or "frosty", but he was financially competent and led by example. As Mayor, Funkhouser declined a wasteful round-the-clock security detail and drove himself in his old car.

You sound like retard Byron

Super Dave said...

Man that video was rather painful to watch and was reminded why I don't like that show. Nick has a voice that make you want to run screaming from the room when he speaks. As for the book, one should never judge one by the cover or the person who wrote it. Base your opinion on whats between the front cover and the back page. From the way they both act on camera I hope they both stick to writing instead as they do that much better.

On a side note Mark isn't in my opinion as stupid as some might think. I know some good people who knew him and they all agree with me. What they point out and I agree with them is that Mark isn't and never will be a powerful public person. He is the guy with the brains you hire to make you look good and place him in an office somewhere so he can't be seen or interviewed. Mark isn't a leader and that is why he is more or less drawn to Gloria as she is his fortress of solitude. It's her in many ways that motivates him to be what he is. Yes he is henpecked and is a member of that men's group that probably is over 10 million strong and growing everyday. As a couple I see them as in a oil and vinegar type relationship. Never really will mix together as one but in their eyes they are a great blend of dressing when together. Their relationship is not unique in anyway because I'm sure everyone knows of a couple somewhere who walk more or less along the lines as the Funkhousers do. I learned a long time ago to just accept how some couples live together in a marriage. The reason for such is you never know what that couple is saying behind your back about your marriage or current relationship.

Is it me or does the former First Lady look coked out?

^^^^^She has Byron for a brother-in-law would you not be stoned all the time due to that?

^^^^^^^Are you really that stupid??????????? 6:36, women have been doing that for more years than I am sure you are old. So do a little history seeking before you open your piehole and show how ignorant you are.

9:33, are you that retarded?? Funkhouser is the douchbag who Fired the guy who got Mast out of the red, who got Mast new equipment, the guy who worked hard to Make Mast a great EMS service and opposed the service be put into the Fire Department. Since that guy was fired and since fire took over, your response times are shit, your equipment is shit, your cardiac arrest saves are shit, which making the comment you did makes you a peice of shit. Keep sucking KCFD dick, hopefully one day you will choke on one!
