Kristi Noem appears to have remained in South Dakota this past weekend. After parading through Vermillion for Dakota Days Saturday morning, our part-time Governor and quarter– (eighth-? sixty-fourth-?) First Gentleman raced up I-29 to drop in on the South Dakota “Right” to “Life” convention in Sioux Falls. (These folks believe in neither rights nor life but simply the subjugation of women.)
If anything good can come of such a theocratic confab, it may be that Kristi, Bryon, and Lt. Gov. Larry Rhoden appeared to draw a smaller crowd than the genuine women’s rights march hosted by Planned Parenthood in downtown Sioux Falls Saturday:
A Twitter friend suggested that maybe the folks at the convention were simply practicing social distancing, but I get the sense that some of the people who are worst at social distancing are those who stick their noses in every woman’s privates.
But see? Planned Parenthood can get more people to show up for social action in South Dakota than Kristi Noem.
Bring all those people out to vote, and the pink-shirted picketers and true defenders of women’s rights can beat the grayer pray-ers and fetus idolatrists.
