Here's a bit of EXCLUSIVE newsie behind the scenes that delights the fashion sensibilities of our blog community.
First and foremost, despite some dust-ups with police Ms. Canady is an extremely nice person who earned conservative praise for helping voters organize "Save The Paseo" petitions from her office.
During the course of the campaign she has mended fences with former political opposition and just about everyone who talks to her knows that she has a charming and soft-spoken manner that speaks of a great deal of empathy for a politico who is obviously very smart, has earned multiple post-grad degrees and is a rising star local lawyer.
Still . . . And given that everybody is is frustrated with public muzzling that is mandated.
ALISSIA CANADY'S EPIC FACE MASK SHOT WAS QUICKLY PULLED FROM A KANSAS CITY WEBSITE WHEN DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONSULTANTS REALIZED THAT IT LOOKED RIDICULOUS!!!
Sure, it's not as cool as Coach Reid's face shield but PPE is never really fashionable.
Actually, we're glad to see that Ms. Canady is keeping safe on the campaign trail given that a great many urban core denizens feel like the Missouri Democratic Party strategy was a ruse and the efforts of the former council lady might be in vain. The suspicion: Party leaders packed the down ballot with people of color but then betrayed them all by focusing all of their efforts and cash on pushing the mouse-y Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway on voters.
But I digress . . .
The point here is that the face mask is kind of silly and Missouri Democrats know it . . . Very much like Midwest progressives putting all their hope (and money) in a candidate for Guv who is mostly too scared to talk trash along with everybody else during campaign season 2020.
P.S. - The TKC challenge to readers tonight is to clown this silly mask WITHOUT being racist jerks or misogynistic given that Ms. Canady really is a nice person and should have a great future in Kansas City politics if/when she ever realizes how badly the cynical Missouri Democrats have hung her out to dry for the benefit of a white lady politico who has faded horribly in the midst of this campaign wherein the super-minority party actually had a great shot to make progress.
