State GOP out of touch? Sure, for almost 30 years.

Just look at this screenshot from a story posted on the Wuss College.

When you have a crackpot like Tornow (above) running your booth, it should be of no surprise it is NOT inviting. This is a guy who ran roughshot over the US Constitution while supposedly practicing law as an assistant city attorney, and sticking it to anyone who questioned his authority (Staggers and Dan Daily come to mind). If I would ever thank Mayor Huether for his accomplishments so far as mayor, firing Tornow sits about #1 on my list. Even his fellow Repugs don’t seem to get it (comment under the article);

Thank you Bill & MC, I am honored.

I would be remiss if I did not point out the super star in the photo. It was my great joy & honor to serve with Rep. Sean Tornow (pictured).
The man has a good morale compass and is fearless.

Tornow either threw away, sat on or ate his moral compass years ago, which brings us to Ellis’ Sunday column;

But (Noem) holding a fundraiser at the Ha has an “elitist” appearance, said my dinner guest. Better to have a public forum at the VFW and a fundraiser later.

Yeah, maybe Noem should have a chili feed on the reservation instead? What SD congressperson doesn’t need a good Lakota Star Quilt to hang on their office wall?

The South Dakota Republican Party has seemed rudderless the past few months.

The past few months?! The only reason these clowns keep getting elected is because of the ‘R’ behind their names. Just ask Bob Litz how it works. He was a nobody as a Democrat, his life changed after becoming a Republican. Trust me, the Democrats are missing a paddle too, because even though they are bound to lose 80% of state elections, they refuse to fight. Throw a couple of punches once in awhile, you might just connect.

Maybe it’s time to focus on policy. Stuff that creates economic benefit.

You mean anti-choice legislation and gun rights don’t create economic benefits? Who knew? I think this clip from Cool Hand Luke says it all:

Looks to me like the journalist is also a little “out of touch” – with the English language.

Example Sentences

Commanders worry about any sign of damage to morale , such as anecdotal evidence of rising divorce rates among servicemen.
In fact all it does is help to lower morale and drive off potential new players.
It's good for morale , and it gets you moving a little bit.

Ruf – Just for clarification, Ellis didn’t say that in his article, Representative Nelson made that comment on DWC.

Scott, Just can’t resist responding for you – of all peeps – to be correcting someone’s spelling or grammar. Morale is (really) what you’re worried about? Like you have any? BTW, Scotty, it’s actually “roughshod” although I do not buy-in to any of your concocted conspiracy theories either dreamed-up by you or Kermie the Frog.

As anyone who’s seen you at your failed waiter jobs across the City – including your apparent inability to generate decent tips – you’re just a pudgy little worm who somehow enjoys constantly whining – always have been… Yes, surprise, I was unfortunate enough to have seen your porky-the-pig physique @ JazzFest & I now know why other girls don’t even give you a second-look given your pear-shaped body build. In fact, in a weird way, you and Kermie sort of look alike given your dour demeanor and you definitely make a great pair of whiners; so, slither off to Kermie for some more goofball conspiracy theories — and maybe – just maybe – you can both get a good spelling lesson at the same time. Remember, the start of school is just around the corner! BTW, here’s a word for you to be sure to spell correctly and so appropriate for you as you’re clearing the dishes on your next table: Numskull!

Brenda – I didn’t catch the misspelling, Ruf did. I don’t really care about grammar and typos on my site, I’m not trying to sell ads here.

I also find it ironic that you would be making fun of my fine physique in a post about the biggest Toad to ever grace the halls of city hall, Tornow. LMFAO!

As for ‘failing’ at waiter jobs, I have never been fired from a single one, unlike Tornow. Tornow is the definition of a true failure. Staggers has proven him wrong on a BS ethics complaint. Citizens have proven him wrong on code enforcement and the red light camera, and several other lawsuits are still awaiting trial. I am assuming Mr. Tornow was fired because of these failures. So go ahead and make fun of my toady body, I sleep just fine at night.

I think rufusx and Brenda both have to work on reading comprehension.

#6 scott on 08.15.11 at 7:01 pm

Is Brenda an old girlfriend you dumped or something? She sure sounds a bitter ex.

#7 Detroit Lewis on 08.15.11 at 7:38 pm

She wishes.

#8 cr on 08.16.11 at 11:57 am

I think Brenda’s comments say more about who she is……

………than they do about who Scott and Kermit are!!

#9 Detroit Lewis on 08.16.11 at 12:08 pm

That she is superficial like most Republicans?

#10 anominous on 08.16.11 at 1:55 pm

Sounds like ol’ L3wis gots a stalker.

#11 Lemming on 08.17.11 at 12:26 am

I thought she served up a a serious plate of pwnage! (Ok, too much gaming). The Tornow photo made me look because he is such a tool – But on the other hand when is the last time the Drooler or Steph (your heroes) broke bread with the Lakota Nation? The Demo’s got it right though – keep giving out freebies and the recipients will give you their votes

#12 l3wis on 08.17.11 at 12:38 am

Is that why the Repugs keep winning in the state? All those free hot dogs and donuts they give out at their events funded by the rich and powerful at the country clubs?
