Because we happen to know that there is almost no end to the dumb things a guy like South Dakota state Rep. Steve Hickey can say about buttsechs, the good legislator was invited onto some local webcast thing from the Argus Leader newspaper, which didn’t run his crazy buttsex letter last week, but was willing […]

Buttsechs. Some people like to do it in their butts, while other people like to pay their rent owning mommyblogs that for some weird reason unknown to G_d or man (COUGH ANA MARIE COUGH) have become synonymous with anal loving. Still other people like to be elected representatives of the people of South Dakota and […]

From the ever-growing “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” division of GunAmerica, we have a super-safe idea: why not put a bar and a gun range in the same location? We know, right? Great idea! Why hasn’t anyone ever thought of this before? What could be safer than dragging your weapons to a gun range plopped […]

Oh, man, we dun goofed. We have upset a nice Christian lady with our meanspirited mockery of a beautiful Erik Estrada movie, and we should feel bad, says would-be commenter “Nanadeg1″: Why do people have to bash someone who is trying to do something wonderful, bringing the word of Jesus to the younger generation. I […]

As we mentioned yesterday, the cognitive dissonance around the defunding of government has been pretty strong these last couple of weeks. The fairly basic notion that if you vote to not fund a government service, that service goes away seems to mystify some folks on the right, who have decided that the shutdown of national […]

Rapid City, SD, Councilman Bill Clayton seems like a swell fella! After all, it only took him five months to apologize to a black reporter for telling her she should be deported to Kenya. And anyway, he did not even know she was black, so he is obviously not racist. Here is something weird, though! […]

Who do you want representing you, South Dakota? A disgusting hippie who loves “cap and trade” and taught at the Biosphere and has a master’s degree? Or this nice lady with the awesome hair who was named “young farmer of the year” by the “Waterstown JC” (?) and who didn’t whore herself out to Big […]

A few weeks ago, Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota introduced the National Fluff My Constituents Act, a.k.a. the National Bison Legacy Act, to name the bison the National Mammal of the United States. That’s about as clear a way as possible to say you hate humans, Tim Johnson. Why isn’t the Overtaxed Small Business […]

He learned chess in Iceland; he lived in Lesotho, and South Africa during Apartheid. The Cuban Missile Crisis? He remembers that! The “I Have a Dream” speech? He remembers that too! He holds newspapers, and then throws them in the trash! He raised daughters, they have straight teeth! Would you like to learn Jeff Barth’s […]

While those useless fat cats in D.C. twiddle their thumbs and let our country sink perilously into debt and endless unemployment, the hardworking legislators of America’s heartland and working together to get things done for their citizens. Yeah, we’re talking about legalizing murder, a common-sense solution to pretty much every problem. South Dakota is considering […]

TOM DASCHLE TO BE OBAMA’S EMPEROR OF MEDICAL THINGS: Fancy Washington Insiders (e.g. CNN) say that Tom Daschle, the former Senate Majority Leader and Obama campaign co-chair who recently made headlines with his sexy Sally Jesse Raphael glasses, will be Barack Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services. Free enemas for all! [CNN]

Hey, you bunch of socialist acorns, did you know you have to register to vote, in many states, before you can show up and vote on November 4, for the terrorists? This is what Barack Obama just told your editor and everybody else who signed up for that Veep Announcement text alert nine years ago. […]

South Dakota Representative Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, née “Stephanie Herseth,” is married to former Representative Max Sandlin. The happy couple just announced they will be having a baby sometime in late December, and the child will be elected to the House of Representatives no later than early March. [Argus Leader]

Here’s an independent ad that was running in South Dakota before its June 3 primary from some Christian group, against Barack Obama. The Obama team complained about it shortly after its debut, and Obama has been referencing it recently as a typical attack ad he’ll see more of this fall. But he doesn’t mention how […]

It is finished. There are no more primaries, no more whining about Michigan and Florida. Even though she may not ever concede, Barack Obama says: “Tonight I can stand here and say, that I will be the Democratic nominee, for the United States of America.” That should be worth some interesting discussion and freakouts, no?
