Personal income in South Dakota has plummeted under Governor Denny Daugaard.
Unfortunately, now that Bernie Hunhoff has abandoned statewide politics to spend more time with his, um...family, the South Dakota Democratic Party has nobody qualified to be governor.
But, earth haters abound in South Dakota's Republican gubernatorial primary so far. Embattled Attorney General Marty Jackley is mulling a go at it, so are ethics-neutral Mark Mickelson and scandal-plagued Avera lobbyist Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels. Career politician and Snow Queen Kristi Noem has all but ruled out a shot at South Dakota's chief executive.
Sovereign citizen Wendel Hiland has announced a third party run.
As South Dakota Governor I will stand with my fellow Citizens in defiance of unconstitutional overreach and abuses committed by the Federal, State and local Government. It's time WE remind Government who's in charge. [Facebook post]Bill Napoli is not so conciliatory.
Gov. Daugaard and his liberal Republicans have ripped off more than $200 million in tax increases in just two years from grandma and grandpa, the disabled, fixed income, veterans, families and low-income people. Now Daugaard wants us to believe it's OK for teenage boys to shower with your daughters at school. And we're told this is wonderful. Gov. Daugaard and his liberal Republicans are slapping each other on the back for the great liberal things they've done. Great? What are you going to do when that boy walks into your daughter's shower, strips and goes in to shower with your daughter? What happens when taxes are so high the elderly have to decide between food or medicine because they don’t have enough money for both? Now, Daugaard wants to spend $50 million to expand Medicaid. [LTE: Bill Napoli]Bill Napoli is the guy who believes some medical procedures should be reserved for white christian women who have been saving themselves for future husbands but who were brutally impregnated by non-white men.
Sorry, Bill, Denny may be a dictator and he ain't no humanist: Daugaard is a capitalist lock, stock and melody.
Hey, Bill: if you're so pissed why do don Juan Thune and Krusti Noem not have primary contenders?
