Former city auditor Mark Funkhouser has a busy week of campaign events, according to a news release from the mayoral candidate and his wife, Gloria.
First, the Funk man got his poodle to endorse him. And now Gloria is endorsing him in a fashion that would make any G.R.I.T.S. proud. She's certainly thrown down the gauntlet, tongue-in-cheek style, to both her hubby and other campaign spouses.
"Well as my little backwoods hubby always likes to say, I'm busier than a one-armed paper-hanger," Gloria tells us. (Question. The Funk man is considered little? Does that make the Shaq demi?)
"I know that I'll never be as busy as I was when I had little babies, but this is a close second. This campaign is a lot like raising babies: if you want to do it the right way, it takes a lot of love, time and effort. You can't imagine how glad I am that this endeavor won't take 18 years to complete though," she says. (So are quite a few of our sleep-deprived colleagues and a certain government editor).
"All I have to say for the moment is that my husband owes me big. He doesn't have enough years left in him to pay it all back!" Gloria proclaims.
All the KC Buzz Blog has gotta say is when the Funk man gets down with his interview with TV host-with-the-mostest Nick Haines this morning he might wanna ease on down the road to his local florist, stop in Christopher Elbow chocolates or if he's feeling particularly guilty he might wanna pick up a certain special little box.
Which sorta does raises the question. How do uber busy mayoral and council candidates celebrate the big V-day?
