There's only one story that really matters this morning because, like it or not, it's the dawn of a new era in American politics. At least for the next 24 months.
To wit . . .
DEMOCRATIC PARTY DECLARES GEORGIA VICTORY AND SEYZ THEY FLIPPED THE SENATE!!! SO DOES THIS MEAN TKC GETS THAT $2,000 CHECK IN TIME FOR VALENTINE'S DAY LOVING?!?!
Forgive me, I'm sure there are far more eloquent missives about social justice and historic change throughout the Internets . . . But here at this blog's basement headquarters, we're mostly interested in giving cash to women with
big butts & breasts voluptuous feminine qualities clad in cheap meretricious lingerie.
And so we'll direct readers to a local declaration of victory from Kansas City Democratic Party leader Jason Kander along with some terse words of encouragement from Mayor Quinton Lucas.
On second thought, Mr. Kander's words seem to sum up local progressive sentiment more accurately . . .
"It’s over, folks. It’s been a long 4 years, but it has ended in the closest thing we have to total victory in American politics. We won. They lost. The fight continues. There is no finish line But it’s gonna be a fun and productive couple years."
More importantly, because this blog seeks alternative perspectives that other local media is too scared to consider, we share these morning headlines to start the conversation . . .Georgia Fight Overnight
