And Now This From the "Party of Personal Responsibility"I found this little gem on a SD righty blog today. It's really pretty revealing.
"John Thune had nothing to do with the bankruptcy of Dan Nelson Automotive. A once profitable and job-providing business now destroyed, and by the actions of Iowa’s Attorney General Tom Miller, a pro-Democrat operative at the national levels of his party. Perhaps it was due to Steve Hildbrand having Tom Miller’s ear that the lost of South Dakota jobs occurred."
Wow. Yeah I guess Dan Nelson bears no responsibility at all for lying to and cheating hunderds possibly thousand of customers. Nope. Dan Nelson is a saint of man who ran a perfectly legit business that just happened to screw a load of people while lining his own pockets and giving money to Thune's campaigns.
A caller on the Rush Limbaugh show today made what I think is a very good point. Conservatives hate news. They love what Limbaugh and Hannity and Belfrage do, which is to dress up opinion and propaganda to look like news, but they don't really have any interest in actual news, or in taking any of their much talked about personal responsibility. If nothing else we are getting to see the true nature of the GOP in SD through this process.
