September 8th, 2015 — Mike Myers, Thune
I guess Mr. Myers has been throwing the idea around. I like it. Let’s admit it, he will pound Ironic Johnny on Obamacare, and the Healthcare industrial Complex. The one thing I would hope Mike considers is running as the Democratic candidate. Even this hardcore Indy would love to see him get party support.
Over the past couple of years I have gotten to know Mike. He is dynamic. I can’t tell you the amount of stimulating conversations we have had. His biting cynicism makes me jealous. His grasp of the issues is mammoth. I say, send the old man to DC.

Meet the Thune Monarchy
I have often balked at the notion that a politician is just that, a servant to the people. But somehow our media has to make them into a monarchy.
Trust me, I could could go on and on about Mr. Do Nothing Obstructionist Ironic Johnny, but he has done so little lately, except climb the leadership ladder, that I am in a loss for words.
So, our Senior Senator figured out reproduction, and now we should do a story about it.
Gripping, investigative reporting. Purely Gripping.

January 28th, 2013 — Keystone XL, Thune
The Keystone XL Pipeline project will create 20,000 jobs? Where John? In Canada? He also repeats the ‘Medicare & Social Security’ bankruptcy mantra.
Lies. Lies. Lies.
November 29th, 2012 — Taxes, Thune
Yeah, this is from the guy who continues to support tax cuts for the rich, voted for two unneeded wars and asked for the biggest federal loan in the history of our country for a private RR company;
Thune told reporters Wednesday. “To me, the pledge isn’t the problem in Washington; the problem in Washington isn’t that we don’t tax enough, it’s that we spend too much.”
Yeah, and what is ironic Johnny going to do about it? NAFT as usual!

I guess they have to make sure they are getting that Medicare money.
July 5th, 2012 — Healthcare, Healthcare reform, obama, Thune
I’m amazed that our local media never picks up on this stuff;
Unimpressed by the timeline, Hewitt pressed Republicans to move faster. He compared the urgency of repeal to Congressional action in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and argued that people are already “dying” from the law. Thune seemed to agree with the sentiment:
HEWITT: Yeah, the reason I balk a little bit is only because I know people are out there dying under the burdens of this thing.
HEWITT: And they expect, you know, the light speed for Congress is like molasses for the rest of the real world.
HEWITT: And so it just seems to me that after 9/11, you guys moved fast, and I would hope it would happen again.
Like I have said in the past, I don’t agree with everything in the healthcare bill, but it certainly isn’t ‘killing’ people. That is the Republican’s plan. Ironic Johnny is famous for calling the kettle black.
As Helga pointed out to me;
“Apparently people are dying right and left because of “Obamacare.” Even though it hasn’t gone into effect yet, only portions have gone into effect, Thune says “yeah” people are dying. It appears, surprise, surprise, he doesn’t give a shit about the people of South Dakota, the people who need healthcare the most. But why should he care, he has his healthcare.”
I have often said that is the motto of rich powerful Republicans, ‘F’ck U! I got mine!’
June 27th, 2012 — Mitt Romney, Thune
Deets from the Romney circle-jerk this past weekend;
If you’re like most of America, maybe you spent this summer weekend barbecuing. Not super-rich Republican donors, conservative thinkers and GOP elective officials. They were in beautiful Park City, Utah, where presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney hosted a fundraiser / policy brainstorming session / salon for everybody who is anybody in the Republican party.
I wonder if Ironic Johnny Thune-Bag was asked to flip burgers like he did in Murdo as a teenager?

SOOOOOOOOOOOO, John isn’t being considered for Vice President?
Fresh off the best fundraising stretch of his presidential campaign, Mitt Romney plans to spend this weekend strategizing and fraternizing with his biggest bundlers at a posh resort in Park City, Utah.
The presumptive Republican nominee and his senior advisers and aides are hosting two days of policy sessions and campaign strategy discussions at the Deer Valley resort for more than 100 top fundraisers and their spouses. Those who raised more than $100,000 are expected to attend.
More than a dozen Republican heavy-hitters are scheduled to join the private retreat as special guests. According to a fundraiser who is attending, they include some GOP stars thought to be in contention to be Romney’s vice presidential running mate: Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sen. John Thune (S.D.).
Don’t eat all the cocktail shrimp.
May 13th, 2012 — Mitt Romney, Thune
WASHINGTON — When asked Sunday whether he would accept an invitation to run as vice president on the ticket with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said that “you never rule out opportunities or options” in political life.
