The Left Side Of South Dakota
As you may or may not know, I grew up in South Dakota, which is, along with Montana, the site of the final democratic primary tomorrow.
I have never really understood why a mid-western state with so many hard-working, generally well-educated people, a majority of whom go to church every Sunday, would be so liberal. South Dakota is, of course, the state that gave us Democratic senators George McGovern and Tom Daschle. McGovern, as I'm sure you remember, ran for President in 1972 and was crushed by incumbent President Richard Nixon. Hubert Humphrey, who was elected as a senator from Minnesota and ran against Richard Nixon in the 1968 presidential election, was also originally from South Dakota.
The general consensus in the MSM is that Barack Hussein Obama is going to win in South Dakota tomorrow. I hope it doesn't come to pass, not because I'm a Hillary supporter, but because I hope the people of South Dakota can see Obama for what he is - a racist, anti-American with an agenda that would bankrupt us financially at home and politically abroad.
Good luck Hillary! I hope you give the boy from Illinois what for tomorrow.
