Oh look! Pat Powers has a new logo for his SDGOP press release blog:
The symbols emitting from the (partial, dismembered, objectified) woman’s mouth are *!☆@. In most contexts, that unintelligible string would be interpreted as verbal excrement not suitable for civil discourse. Finally, some truth in advertising!
But that’s only one tidbit of truth amidst Dakota War College‘s persistent falsehood. Powers pairs this gross logo with the slogan “South Dakota’s most popular and most influential political website.” Funny: at both of this year’s Aberdeen crackerbarrels, I’ve heard my Republican legislators reference material on Dakota Free Press but never anything from their own party’s mouthpiece. You’d think that the state’s “most popular and influential” blog would come up more frequently in the public statements of the legislators friendliest to its Republican messaging.
I don’t need to assert any claim to popularity or influence. I’ll stick with simply telling you what this blog is: “South Dakota’s true liberal media,” a description in which every adjective—South Dakota’s, true, and liberal—has meaning.
