KC Star editorial: "Stop pontificating..."

This is gonna leave a mark! . . .

http://www.kansascity.com/2013/10/17/4559472/stop-pontificating-start-leading.html

"The next time U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder gets that sincere look on his face and starts extolling his love of fiscal responsibility, compassion for small businesses and the need for certainty in the financial world, just remember this:

When it came time Wednesday to do the responsible, pragmatic thing ó to end a government shutdown that had slashed services to millions of Americans while sapping private businesses of untold amounts of money ó Yoder followed the tea party line.

He was one of 144 House Republicans to vote for a continued spiral toward default and even more dysfunction in the nationís capital. Others in the local delegation who voted to add to the losses were Sam Graves and Vicky Hartzler of Missouri. Yoder explained his vote Thursday by saying he wanted to 'rein in the ever-increasing spending in Washington, D.C.'

Great idea, congressman. But the way to accomplish that feat isnít through shuttering government and promoting the near financial collapse of the free world to pursue the end-game of defunding the Affordable Care Act."


------------------------------------------------
Yoder is one of the least effective congressthings ever to hold a seat in that body. I hope we all remember next November, and throw this worthless puke to the ashbin of history.

1. Maybe his fake family takes too much of his time.

What a good-looking family. In his new campaign video for Congress, Kevin Yoder appears to have a photogenic, all-American brood: three adorable girls and a boy, who seem to embody the heartland values Yoder espouses in his new campaign video.

Except those aren't Yoder's children.

If you just watched the video and didn't know any better, you'd think these were Yoder's kids.

They're not.

3. only one problem

Who is running against him?

Do you know?

Because I don't.

Ah well, I guess it turns out Yoder did not start running until December 15, 2009, but he had a bit of an advantage since Stephen Moore did not decide to run until some time in April 2010, and the KDP had NO candidate in 2012.

4. Someone needs to....

Myself, I don't live in Kansas, let alone his district (thank Sky-Daddy!), but if he gets a decent opponent, I would certainly chip in to help throw this dork out on his ass.

5. I personally guarantee

he will not run unopposed this time.

Well, unless Roberts is running unopposed.

Right now there is no Democrat running for the Senate (again).

Especially considering the late start, I don't think either of them is beatable, although Yoder ought to be, considering that Democrats held that seat for about six terms.

But if he was gonna be beat, I think somebody should have started last March, during Washington Days 2013.
