I mentioned the opposite placement of the Trump and Reagan cut-outs at the Brown County Republicans’ booth at our county fair. Here’s the Reagan side:
If I were a Republican, I’d say I want my signs right where John Thune’s are. And if I were Shantel Krebs, I’d be dropping by and telling management to get my sign out from behind that Trump-Pence slogan and staple it to Reagan’s lapels.
Saint Ronnie’s steady gaze must be reminding the party faithful of better days and discouraging interest in Trump swag. The Brown County Republicans were asking $20 for their cheap garbage-bag Trump-Pence signs.
They’ve scratched that with a 50% discount, and we still have the three biggest days of the fair to go. Expect them to paper over that dollar-ask completely by Saturday lunch.
The Brown County Republicans are also auctioning off Trump caps. Bidding is less than torrid:
Visitors don’t have to pay anything to enter the drawing for farm/hunting caps signed by Rep. Kristi Noem and a basketball signed by Senator John Thune.
Heck, I’d settle for one good signed piece of farm legislation.
