Those who acknowledge news from Kansas City have already read this story and broken their coffee tables in anger. The recall effort against KC Mayor/mythical wizard Mark Funkhouser came 129 signatures short. Although lots of shiny happy lawsuits on the matter are still pending. So if any of them revive the recall, someone here will make sure to bring it up.

So what else is there to say right now?

Other than unearthing one of those old “Bush can still turn it around in 2007 and become popular again” fantasy columns and reapplying it to Funkhouser in 2009? Funkhouser would still lose a one-on-one recall if his wife endorsed the other candidate.

You only get so many opportunities on stuff like this. Just saying.
