When Tony's Kansas City (TKC) first started it was an amusing blog where people could go to and get an occasional laugh or opinion on Kansas City, it was a blog you would check during the day to see the happenings' in KC and maybe enjoy a witty comment.
Unfortunately, it has now turned into a blog that would make the Daily Kos envious. It is flat out liberalism spewed on a day-to-day basis.
And trust us, spewed is an accurate term. TKC gets his information from his "tipsters" who seem more like Democrat operatives and bureaucrats. Straight from the left he has risen, finding that his best bet on audience approval is to tilt his ample eye to
promoting Democrat ideals.
TKC has hit his high note by attacking Mayor Funkhouser. We understand acquiring a target for all the enemies to group at your site is a smart, albeit easy ploy. But lately his material is waning. Now his attack is aimed at the Funk for agreeing to attend a Kansas City Young Republicans meeting at the end of April. If TKC has it right
- the mayor is a part of the vast right-wing conspiracy - if true, would he really showcase this at "The Levee"-speaking to Republicans under 30?
TKC seems more enthralled with putting pictures on the blog instead of giving factual and interesting information, maybe because of this, TKC is not able to understand the dynamics of being a non-partisan mayor of a large city. While we all know Funkhouser is a Democrat, it is not uncommon for officials in "non-partisan" positions of power to reach out and speak to different groups of varying viewpoints. In fact, we remember the vaunted Kay Barnes doing the exact same thing. YOUR HIGH PITCHED SHRILL comments about the Funk are making you a one note band.
Now, Tony's Kansas City is taking swipes at the successful Kansas City Tax Day Tea Party - calling the participants "radicals" and saying it is an "effigy of Obama." Seriously, does TKC spend most of his time watching re-runs of Rachel Maddow? There were hundreds of these parties across the United States with an estimated 750,000 attendees. Without doing the math, that looks on paper like a pretty big fringe to me. My only guess is that TKC has drank the "kool aid" and cannot believe people would be upset about paying taxes or shoving off billions of dollars worth of debt to future generations. TKC may feel this way too if he was a part of the now barely 51% of the people that actually pay taxes.
So, here's to you TKC - it looks like you are ready and willing to take a HARD left and sacrifice any real individual thought that you might have.
You are a talented blogger who has succumbed to the libs. I'm sure the CCP blog is happy to link you and help their traffic. Let all the other "same song, second verse" blogs get in line with you. Liberal blogs unite.
