GOP Jesus

Where does the GOP find these people?

Is a Minnehaha County Commissioner Candidate Incumbent planning to resign after being elected?

There is a rumor going around that one of the Republican incumbent Minnehaha County commissioners plans to resign if/after they are re-elected. While I have a pretty good guess who that may be, I have NO idea if they plan to resign soon after the election (so someone can be appointed) or wait two years (when the next election is held for the county commission).

If this is true, my guess is they will put in a couple of months and resign after January so they can appoint another Republican and create a FAKE incumbent like they did with Jean Bender.

It’s a little trick the Republican’s pull all the time in the legislature and now it seems they are getting used to the practice on the County Commission.

Like I said, at this point it is a rumor, but had a pretty reliable source tell me about it.

Like the SD GOP has secrets?

What was ‘Revisionist’ about Sam’s tweet?

I’m trying to figure out what part of this tweet isn’t historically incorrect?

While I don’t think it is in bad taste, especially since everything he stated is TRUE (he left out indian killers), probably not the best statement about the 4th of July from the State Director of the Democratic Party. But it certainly isn’t offensive or ‘revisionist’. What is ‘offensive’ is the response from the SDGOP manure spreader;

SDGOP Chairman Lederman said, “Our founding fathers fought and died on the battlefield and forged what grew to be the greatest nation on earth based on the principle that we should be a free people, and that their fellow citizens should not be subject to taxation without representation.”

White, Male, Property owners to be ‘FREE’ people. Women, slaves, Native Americans, and indentured servants . . . not so much.

“The South Dakota Republican Party and the people of South Dakota reject that kind of liberal revisionism that Democrats continually try to inject into our state.”

As I stated above, I am still trying to figure out what part of Sam’s statement is untrue? Of course, it is easy for the SDGOP chair to cry foul while representing mainly conservative Christians while being registered to vote in Iowa (and doing business there) while lobbying for Muslims (he is Jewish). The heck with rewriting history, let’s just rewrite the rules.

“They’re hiding what they stand for at the same time their director is bashing Independence Day.”

Just because the party hasn’t released their platform to YOU, doesn’t mean they are hiding something. And stating the truth about our founding fathers is NOT bashing Independence Day, or Veterans, or whatever kind of group you want to pull out of your ass that you may think will be offended.

Is Billie Sutton’s pick for Lt. Governor is (was?) a Republican?

We checked on Michelle Lavallee’s voter registration to see if she recently changed it, but in past tense she is showing up as a Republican and has a very poor voting record.

I also found it interesting that Billie would pick a person who co-chaired Paul TenHaken’s mayoral campaign. While tapping a Sioux Falls Woman with savvy in running a campaign within Sioux Falls is a good idea, Billie really needed to tap a Democrat (you know, the party you are running in). I saw Heidepriem make this mistake when he did the same thing.

Why is it when Democrats run for statewide offices in South Dakota they think they can win as ‘Republican Light’? Either just run as a Republican/Democrat or not at all. This STRATEGY has NEVER worked, and I have no idea why the SD Democratic Party keeps playing this card time and time again.

Is it too early to congratulate Governor Noem on her win?

Par for the Course

TenHaken’s Deputy COS is running for a Republican Committeeman

Deputy COS T.J. Nelson is running in Precinct 309 and City Councilor Greg Neitzert is running in Precinct 317 for Committee people in the Republican Party.

While the waters have already been tested by Erickson and Staggers for councilors as committee people (the ethics commission said it was OK because they are volunteer positions) that question has never been asked about appointed city employees who work for a non-partisan mayor.

While I don’t take issue with T.J. being a proud Republican party member, I wonder if he is testing the waters on this?

If I sat on the Ethics Commission I would probably OK it, but the optics of it don’t look good when your boss has promised to be a non-partisan mayor in the campaign. I’m wondering if T.J. asked an opinion of the Ethics Commission or the city attorney?

What do you think?

It seems T.J.’s name is coming up a lot as a partisan, I think this will hurt Paul in the long run.

South Dakota Republicans upset there isn’t an evil Dem to vote against

So the latest poll is out. Guess what? Mr. Scandal and do nothing Snow queen government subsidy are neck and neck. Why? Because they both have a slobbering horse greasy ‘R’ behind their names and Republicans are freaking out. It’s like the poster my step dad posted to our rusted out frig one day that had a cartoon rooster on it saying, “I’m so confused I don’t know which way to point my pecker.”

You mean in the primary I can’t vote AGAINST an evil abortion loving Democrat?! What gives? Now they have to make a decision between two Republicans and it’s the most difficult decision in their lives.

Can’t we just flip a coin?

Maybe we can have Trump decide?

Either way we won’t get a respectable candidate. That’s ok, in November just vote Sutton.

SOS Krebs doesn’t even know who the registered Republicans are

Thanks for your litter Shantel

Well, I have known for a long time that SOS Shantel Krebs has no clue how to run her office, except she did it better than that last guy and his knuckle-head friend. Yeah, I know, that bar wasn’t real high.

But I would think Shantel and her campaign crew would know it is pointless to leave lit in the door of a registered Independent (over a decade – and never a Republican).

If Tapio or Johnson did this, I wouldn’t have blinked an eye, BUT THE SECRETARY OF THE STATE!

Shantel best find a new source for a clean list besides her front drawer. Hilarious.

Shantel, I know a guy, but he charges a pretty penny.
