No small wonder why Jim was a one-termer in Foggy Bottom, eh?

How much bullshit can one person swallow?

Remember those days? At one time we had George, and Jim representing this State in the U.S. Senate. SD is right in there with Texas and Alabama lapping-up knee-jerk fascism.

Now the Senate has Ted Cruz, and John Thune.

What a fucking joke.

Hang in there Larry - keep the fire to these assholes' feet.
