About all that can be said for this "election" in KCMO is:

You really can't make this stuff up.

No, Punky, I'M not the one who got slammed!
Your feeble try to deflect the fact your little butt got torn up more than it did in Hamburger Mary's restroom Saturday night rankles, but suck it up ("up" for a change) and live with it.
