You had me at Kansas City Star...Sir Otilc backs Todd Tiahrt
Campaign season is normally a turd-fest of politicians flinging "candy bars" at each other on a daily basis. It gets old faster than a giant hemorrhoid on a 12 hour turbulent plane ride sitting in coach. One political race that caught my attention this year was Jerry Moran versus Todd Tiahrt. They are both running for a senate seat in the state of Kansas.
I watched all of the commercials and paid attention closely to the differences between the two and was having a tough time figuring out which one had a spine and which one was going to cave to political winds. With one of the most crooked administrations in the history of our country in charge of the White House, and the other two branches blindly supporting the destruction of our nation, I am now forced to pay attention to politics.
So what was the deciding factor for my vote? The Kansas City Star. I was listening to the radio the other morning when I heard the Kansas City Star was backing Jerry Moran. That was all it took. Maybe I am a little off because I stopped reading the "Falling Star", as a local radio talk show host likes to call it, once I realized they stopped being journalists. If The Kansas City Star supports Jerry Moran, then I support Todd Tiahrt.
But things went from bad to worse for Jerry Moran when the big news story was how his campaign manager, Paul Moore, left his camp after 2 months because Jerry isn't really a conservative. Moore gives the impression Moran is one of those politicians who says whatever needs to be said to gain public support. As I dug into it a little more I found out that Paul Moore wasn't the first campaign manager to leave Jerry Moran and endorse Todd Tiahrt, Chuck Knapp left the Moran camp and is now Tiahrt's current campaign manager.
I can only think of one thing worse for Jerry Moran than his campaign managers (plural) leaving his camp and moving to his competitiion...having the kiss of death endorsement of The Kansas City Star.
Let me be the first to congratulate Todd Tiahrt in his victory over Jerry Moran.
