Another one from the vault


This was a toon I did when Pressler was running against Janklow in the primaries for Congress (inspired by South Park of course). During that campaign you could see Pressler out and about quite a bit. Chuck and I used to frequent Theo’s lounge on Friday nights after work. One night we go in there and the place was packed accept for a 4-top. Well Pressler and his wife come in and two of their friends and they grab the 4-top. But it only had 3 chairs next to it, so Larry stood for awhile, then he decided to walk around and find an extra chair. Right next to Chuck and I was a couple that had a 3-top. They had their coats hanging on the 3rd chair. Larry very nicely goes up to ask if he could use the chair and the guy gives him the meanest look I have ever seen and barks ‘NO!’ Larry just sheepishly walked away. I still remember looking over at Chuck and we burst into laughter at the same time. Politicians, you either love them or you hate ’em. Or you poop on them, like I do.

I remember the last republican primary he was in. I was on the way to go fishing somewhere in this part of the state and I saw a Pressler for congress car coming hte other way down the road. At the wheel was Larry Pressler himself.
I waved back to him, but kind of felt sorry for him.

I saw Larry at the Avera Fitness Center the last time he was running for something. I was standing there with a few other guys and he came in and made some comment in a vain attempt to fit in with a group of guys he didn’t know.

Nobody gave him the time of day and other than myself I don’t think anyone even knew who the guy was. He just walked away with his tail between his legs and I never saw him at the fitness center again. Ever.

The guy just looked like he was trying too hard. It was almost pathetic, but granted I haven’t spent a lot of time with politicians so maybe they are all like that.

They probably didn’t know who he was. Larry was a bonified lobbyist from DC when he ran against Janks, hadn’t lived here for years.
