But holy heck! How can Kristi Noem not run for President in 2024 when she takes great campaign photos like this:
Noem’s clever use of South Dakota tax dollars to air the first television ads of the 2024 Presidential campaign is all great and fine, but this photo—this photo!—wins elections. Kristi Noem, big as life, hat and horse, smiles and rides right into the camera, flag waving in her boldly raised hand, while real men in fancy chaps stand at attention, hats over hearts, eyes fixed reverently the queen of their hearts, the queen of the rodeo, the Queen of the American Reawakening that she will lead after years under the dark shadows of Biden and Harris.
Whoever took that picture deserves a raise. Anyone who says the Noem ’24 campaign shouldn’t use that photo should be fired from Team Noem and banished from the Lewandowski bunker.
Of course, my enthusiasm for this photo as a campaign banner assumes that a nationwide audience thinks just like South Dakotans do, fantasizing that, deep down, we are all cowboys, and deeming people who don’t love rodeo pantywaists or Frenchmen.
Plus, the photo shows Kristi at something called the “Bull Bash“, which could easily be confused for the Republican National Convention—
