South DaCola’s ‘Give me a F’ing Break’ quote of the day

Picture 9

(H/T – RR) From STORMLAND TV News;

Conzet has known the Governor for 20 years; he and her father are business partners, but she says she did not lobby for the position and it’s not a conflict of interest.

It’s not a conflict because I am a Republican, and everything we do is sacred, ethical and moral, and BTW, don’t question our intentions. Kristin scares the shit out of me, and that huge freaking scarf like thing isn’t helping the situation!

Do ya’ suppose she got the scarf from Yasser Arafat?

If (and when) she becomes a rubber-stamp for the guv – then it’s a conflict; but we won’t know until it’s too late.

It’s not paternalism, it’s fratboyalism. Give her the Palin republican prototype, buy her dresses, and never let her speak.

I am astonished she would have the nerve to say “it is not a conflict” and making it sound like Mikey had to pick her because it is a ‘small state’ WTF? It is so small he has to pick his business partner’s daughter? Talk about someone who is out of touch with reality. Figures, she is a consultant, a person who makes money feeding people bullshit.

It might be a small state, but there are probably at least 200,000 people who could easily fill that role without being somehow affiliated with the gov.

Not that this should really shock anyone. Politicians always rewards their friends, family members, business partners, and campaign contributors. At least in this case you know what the connection is.

I’m sure she knows she’d have no hope for this position without the connection. Speaks volumes for her character. After Rounds, she’ll only be remembered as a token favor.

That’s what I was thinking. What’s with all these people and their terrorist scarves these days? Is Hamas in fashion now?

This appointment doesn’t tell us anything about Marion that we didn’t already know. He’s a good old boy, small-town-thinking guy, which the people of this state seem to love.

At least he didn’t try to sell the seat.

“At least he didn’t try to sell the seat.”

How do you know?

Besides, what is a SD state legislator seat worth in SD? $2.95?

#10 Ghost of Dude on 12.14.09 at 10:17 am

I’d take $2.95 for one.

Whenever I see somebody with a heavy type scarf around their neck, I think they look really uncomfortable. I have been noticing on TV that men are starting to wear scarves like the women. Of course I don’t like anything real close to my neck.
