County Treasurer Candidate calls Residents Erections

This is why I often tell people running for local office to have someone proofread their campaign materials before releasing them. Besides the fact that the first two sentences were incoherent, I’m sure she meant to say we are ‘Hardy’ in Minnehaha County, but I’m not sure what that has to do with the treasurer’s office? Maybe it means we can tolerate standing in long lines for hours?

But she’s right. We are all the products of the “harde”. But how does that make Minnehaha unique? Are not all peoples from the “harde”, whether from Minnehaha, Moody, Hand, or Harding counties? And don’t forget about the Minnesota counties of Rock, Pipestone, and Redwood, or Iowa’s counties like Woodbury, Dickinson, or Sac.

Swanson’s Freudian slip speaks of the anguish which comes from a true virus and its social distancing. Where one hardens to the thought of becoming one or wishes for a hardness that once was.

I’m dying right now from your boner references.

The irony is before I got to her misspelling of hardy, I had to read the first two sentences several times before I could comprehend them, and I still don’t know what she is talking about. I’m wondering if this was written by Swanson or Langer, just saying.

Gave up teaching, quit nursing, washed up artisanal cheese maker, budding romance novelist.

Lincoln was a rail-splitter.
Three of the Lincoln County Commissioners have railed taxpayers by purchasing from a developer a parcel of swampland in Tea, land upon which the taxpayers will receive another harde if Lincoln County builds on the parcel a jail … ahem … ‘Public Safety Center’.
The boner reference is a stretch; the screw job administered by Commissioners Jim Schmidt, Michael Poppens and Tiffani Landeen is more certain.

Just to be clear readers, Guy’s pipe is laid in LC not MC. But we all know draining the snake, uh, I mean swamp, is universal.

Yah, that first sentence is very painful. Like a teenage boy in tight jeans after a Nancy Sinatra musical video (You got to love those boots.).

And then, what is this thing about her optical clinic named “Swanson’s Vision”? I have heard of “harde” of hearing, but can you be “harde” of seeing. I thought that was called nearsighted, farsighted, or blindness, where one must begin to touch to know what is and what is going on.

So it’s very “harde” to understand what she meant. It leaves one “harde” pressed like that teenage boy in a crowded subway car.

Oh, to answer your question, maybe Langer, because Republicans like to keep their women barefoot and pregnant… Alcohol helps. But maybe Lederman was involved, with the failed Tweet, that is. He’s from Des Moines, which is in Polk County.

Come to think of it, are there any counties nearby named “Johnson”?

Yes, the Lincoln County part of Sioux Falls, or Taupeville, is not “harde” pressed, that’s why Limitless Male is there. It’s next to the Kum and Go.

Oh cumon, you’re being harde on her.

if it helps, there is a johnson county in iowa…the u of i resides there…sort of nearby des moines. some of us more progressive iowans affectionately call the “kum and go” the “jizz and jet.”

Swanson assumes a general inferiority complex amongst us all and only because we are all known to be from Minnie – Ha – Ha.

“Okay, enough with the lewd comments around here, but is it true that if you take your first pet’s first name and your middle name, then that’s your current stripper name in a parallel universe?”…. “If so, my pussycats name was ‘Delicious’ and my middle name is ‘Richard'”…. #WoodstockIsASolidName

There are two things that I have noticed, which bring people out, when it comes to this blog site: Guns and sex.
And in both cases, it involves pulling something out and then firing. One is alleged to be protected by the Constitution, while the other requires a good constitution and some protection.

On an other note, I see Starr is now on the TV tube, while Swanson has fallen into the “harde” abyss of social medias profanity and indecency. Just because your opponent adopts doesn’t mean you are the stronger, or “harde” – r candidate, rather, it just proves you are “harde” – r to understand and just don’t get it, enough.

Also, I have heard that COVID has lessen poll watching for all locations, precincts, that is….
