So, I have this working now. I can send commands to the telnet server, dynamically. However, is there a way to supress the output of the data I get back so it doesn't flood my shell (stdout)?

As you can see in twisted.internet.protocol.Factory

ReconnectingClientFactory inherits that method, so each TelnetClient
instance it builds will  have a self.factory you can use to access
your cmd list.

Hope that helps,
