On the topic of guns, butter and pandemic politics . . .
Last year our progressive friends accused the Guv of spreading plague whilst grilling steaks at a cookout. Even worse, Missouri Democrats and their Kansas City counterparts seemed to gloat when the Guv & his wife caught COVID. The punchline was that even with Prez Trump playing boogeyman, the Show-Me State GOP CRUSHED MISSOURI DEMOCRATS and defeated every statewide candidate by an EPIC margin. We can't repeat this enough because it's a local fact of life and political reality that's often ignored by our pals who watch too much cable TV news and lose their sense of place.
Accordingly, we notice our local Democratic Party friends repeatedly lashing out at the Guv who might, once again, have the last laugh.
A few examples . . .
Don't get it twisted, we're not a fan of the Guv or any politico for that matter.
However, we do think it's funny that he keeps tricking Mayor Q into talk of cooperation with his friendly Missouri twang and then invariably double-crosses the young politico by endorsing legislation targeting progressive KCMO policies.
Also . . . As of today COVID has killed 8,752 people in Missouri so you'll forgive us if we don't pass out party favors.
Here's a somewhat objective view of Guv Parson's greatest hits in the time of plague . . .
In the final analysis, what we notice is that Missouri voters are endorsing Guv Parson's low key style of leadership whilst social media outrage, hyperbole and vitriol hasn't been effective in swaying voters.
If Missouri Democrats and progressives are going to advance their policy goals . . . They might want to try talking to people about issues rather than attempting to shame voters, feign outrage and champion public hysterics in the name of identity politics.
