Will Noem even show up to the debate on Friday?

I have been wagering with several people that Noem will likely not show up to the debate on Friday. I think she knows she leads in the polls and doesn’t really need to be there.

She will likely have one of her minions pen an email about her back giving her trouble or some other fake emergency.

I look at this as an opportunity for the Democratic and Libertarian candidates to pile it on her and take a double team approach to pointing out her nepotism, corruption and illegal plane trips. Instead of them attacking each other, they need to attack the failed political system we currently have in South Dakota with one-party rule.

Maybe Jamie Smith needs to run an ad like this;

Conservatives who don’t like Noem are the key, but I don’t think you win them over by talking about abortion and marijuana, well, especially not from the liberal stand point. Let’s also not forget how Nixon claimed he was going to beat McGovern big, and did, by claiming the other side was for the “Three A’s”: Amnesty, abortion, and acid.

( and Woodstock adds: “Now ‘Amnesty’ would be the third experience, right?”…. )

What if Noem’s injury causes her to be addicted to pain killers? Because then maybe we would all like the new Noem.

She could call it in while sitting at a California beach after a day of shopping on Rodeo Drive, getting her filler touched up, nails done, a full body massage and still win. The next day she will be on Fox News and then jet back to South Dakota. No matter what scandals they will vote for her and she knows it.

How did she hurt her back, when did it happen, and when did she know it? These are the key questions to Backgate.

“Say, isn’t a back gate a lot like a back door?”…..

I see Noem wants to free me from the food tax, but won’t that then give me more discretionary income which will then further fuel inflation? Also, isn’t there a relationship between one’s food budget and one’s waistline? #AGuyCannotWin

Maybe the painkillers caused her to be against the sales tax on food. #LetThemEatCake #IWonderWhatThePoorAreDoingRightNow?
