This just in: Former Central debater and main subject of my book has just won the first election of what will hopefully be a long political career. In a landslide victory, Marcus Leach and the 'Roo Party claimed leadership of UMKC's Student Governnment Association.
From what I understand, the campaign got a little nasty toward the end. Marcus called me on Tuesday freaking out about how someone was distributing incendiary flyers made up to look as if Marcus had distributed them. But this was a dmbassed move of mammoth proportions, and the Roo party prevailed. Big!
This dude's goin' places! Word is that local Democratic insiders have already been talking with him about what public office he should seek first.
