What is this attention whoring but making a mockery of American governance and elected office? She did this in front of her son and daughter, teaching them the same contempt for America. These know-nothings havent the vaguest idea of the singular greatness of America and what it was our founding fathers achieved.
NEWLY ELECTED MISSOURI COUNCIL MEMBER SWORN IN ON DR. SEUSS BOOK INSTEAD OF BIBLE By Daniel Avery, Newsweek, August 21, 2019: A newly elected member of the St. Louis County Council chose to be sworn in with a Dr. Seuss book rather than a Bible.
Earlier this month, Democrat Kelli Dunaway handily beat Republican Alderman Amy Poelker for the 2nd District seat, garnering 60 percent of the vote. Since election regulations dont require politicians to swear their oath of office on a Bible, Dunaway opted to lay her hand on Dr. Seuss 1990 bestseller Oh, the Places Youll Go!
HER SON AND DAUGHTER HELD THE BOOK FOR DURING HER SWEARING-IN CEREMONY ON AUGUST 13.
Council Member Kelli Dunaway said she chose Oh The Places Youll Go because it offers a message of inspiration to anyone embarking on a new phase of life, Kelli Dunaway @ Facebook A former field organizer at Obama for America, Dunaway said in a Facebook post that the book offers a message of inspiration to anyone embarking on a new phase of life, whether its a high-school graduation, the jump from kindergarten to first grade, or even the next stage of a political career.
Its the same reason you all believe in me and our campaign, she added, because I see a brighter future for all of us and am steering myself in the direction of building it!
Dunaway quoted an excerpt from the book: You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. Youre on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy wholl decide where to go.
She admitted Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel, was not immune to a male-centric narrative as he sought to inspire
but the message is the same whether the reader is a guy or not.
At least her kids seem to be aware of their proper genders. She's an 0bama fan grrrl, 'nuff said.
Definitely a smartass; and that’s just for starters.
Translation: The harridan was finally dumped by her long suffering husband; now she is a bitter divorcee, a newly minted single mom taking it out on her children and the world.
But Dr. Seuss is a racist! He stereotypes different cultures in a very offensive manner in books for children in order to teach them hate!

The “Show Me” state.
I wonder if she said, so help me Dr Suess?
That's probably the only part of her that is smart.
Flit was an insecticide, not an insect repellent.
I swore an oath upon this book.
Upon this book an oath I took.
Before I swore, I did not look
To see which book it was I took.
NO; MISSOURI JUST VOTED IN ANOTHER LOSER.
If she was elected with 60% of the vote, that would mean that at least that much support the policies of the Democratic Party. Any new refugees should promptly be settled there, as well as any illegal that is waiting for their asylum hearing. Let her and the 60% that voted for her, live with the consequences of what they support.
Henceforth pronounced misery.
Could have been worse. She could have sworn in on a Quran.
Just another godless, insane, attention-whore, female lib.....Missouri could do a lot better.
These wackos are everywhere. If you don’t keep Jesus close daily ANYONE is destined for the fall from Grace.
We really should send her a couple of cats.
However, she named her kids Thing One and Thing Two.
No hubby ? Whered those kids come from, Sperm Bank Savings and Loans ?
