For Congress: Jacob Turk, MO-5

Nice Deb tells me this can happen.

Jacob Turk's opponent is Emanuel Cleaver, who is not only as socialist/progressive as you could possibly want (or bear), but who also happens to be the chief architect of SpittleGate and all those racial slurs which no one seemed to record as the most liberal members of the Democratic Caucus marched defiantly to show they were ready willing and eager to defy the will of the electorate.

Unbeatable? Not so: A private Rasmussen poll shows him down a mere 6-9 points. And he was down 20 a couple of months ago.


Jacob Turk: proud to be a Tea Partier.

Here he is mixing it up with some of those dirty tea-bagger types at a rally:


Daring to come within spitting distance of a Tea Partier.


Jacob Turk for Congress

Two things, Emanuel: 1. We're spitting mad but we don't spit.

2. You're fired.

I love how every time Democrats are in political trouble Angry White People start popping out of the shadows to throw epithets at them. Just when they need it the most.

Just so curious how this keeps on happening. Like, with Ruth McClung. She's about to beat Grivalja or whatever his name is, Fat Tarantula Face, and just as she's about to score that upset, the Secret Legions of Conveniently Unrecorded Epithet-Hurling White Racists suddenly decide to activate.

Well, that all started with Cleaver, didn't it? Well, it didn't start with him, but he sure knows which page to turn to in the playbook.

Let him know: We remember.

And we're not in a forgiving mood.

yep, just like "numerous death threats" suddenly occur when a Democrat finds himself/herself in a scandal.

Any day now Republican Dirty Tricks will rear its ugly beautiful head.

He's the guy who runs amok in the latter part of the election cycle. He does nasty stuff like quote Democrats with their own words, and sometimes he even criticizes the Democrat's records on issues.

7 Turk should really run for the 182nd district someplace.

Actually, it's all just the one play. We just photo-copied the same page 276 times to make the book seem thicker.

When the race tightens for a black democrat, it's truly amazing how many white racists pop out of tea bags, and begin calling that person a liberal democrat and their heads explode. What's up with that?

22 Growing up not far from Kansas City Mo, this guy was the mayor for most of my childhood. To see him this far down in the polls in his KC district of all places is just mind boggling. There were points in his political career when he probably could have gotten elected dictator for life of KC MO but apparently not anymore. A really big push could dethrone this guy, St. Louis pretty much runs the Dems in MO. They aren't going to put a lot effort in saving Cleaver when they are looking out for their own asses on the other side of the state.

Posted by: Drew in MO at October 13, 2010 03:57 PM (eu/Ap)

23 I'm in the KC area. Hate to be an eyore, but it's not likely. This is Harry Truman's town after all, solidly Dem. But with a BIG wave and VERY LOW Dem turnout, it's possible. I wouldn't put $ on Turk though if I had to bet.

Not only was it not recorded, but footage DISPROVING it was.

Breitbart begged dinosaur media outlets to play that but was met with responses like "old news" and "you won, get over it."

35 I grew up in Cleaver's district, though most of it was during the time when he was mayor of KC. Guy's a world class race-baiter.

36 There's a donate widget on my blog in case anyone wants to help Jacob out with some $$$. He really needs it because the party hasn't given him any funding at all, and he refuses to take PAC money.

Thanks Ace!

38 Thanks for posting this ace!! I have been trying to get him some attention on the blogs. Hubby and I have been friends with him for 25 years. He's a great guy and a true conservative. This is his third attempt at defeating Cleaver. GO TURK!!

39 Don't they call they guy who goes around NFL training camps and tells the guys that they've been cut "The Turk?"

Posted by: jimmuy at October 13, 2010 05:01 PM (ImAna)

40 Since I'm too lazy to look, I'll say Turk's chances depend on how far out the district runs from central KC. The further the better, and it's too bad it can't reach across the state line to take in Overland Park and Shawnee Mission.

Posted by: sestamibi at October 13, 2010 05:19 PM (Ft/ts)

41 I'm glad these candidates are doing well, but I think we need to heed Churchill's admontion that if we try to fight everywhere we will win nowhere. As excited as I am that conservatives are doing well, I think we need to aim the guns carefully and effectively. Just sayin'.

Posted by: ObjectionSustain at October 13, 2010 05:21 PM (YayEM)

42 I actually live in the 5th district, and I met and talked to Jacob Turk at a tea party gathering here in KC. Very nice guy, and I'd love to see him win.

I'm shocked that he's only down 6-9 points in this gerrymandered district. Makes me wish his campaign would get me that yard sign they promised...

Posted by: deathweezel at October 13, 2010 06:49 PM (PGYLy)

43 I am also in the 5th district, and am hoping beyond hope the impossible can happen. The polling news is wonderful.

I've also heard on the "urban" station, one of their weekend talk shows, the inner city folks are NOT happy with Mister Cleaver and his boondoggle of "Green Zone," which I think was nothing more than a way to funnel cash to his buddies.

Posted by: JamesLee at October 13, 2010 09:08 PM (7EJxi)

44 I also find it, um, interesting, that Cleaver's own church is a polling station.
