Kristi Noem: candidate from Hell?
Kristi Noem: candidate from Hell?

This is going to be patently unfair and ridiculous. I know that. But I have a point to make beneath all the absurdity, and if the point is worth making, the argument is worth makingI dont know any other way to proceed. Besides, as some bygone politician of yore whose name some good historian can no doubt recall stated to his staffers when confronted with a patently untrue attack on one of his opponents, I know thats not true, but let him deny it. So enough introduction.

Who is Kristi Noem? Well as hypothesized above, she is the candidate from hell who recently won the Republican primary for the right to take on Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin. Thats ridiculous of course, shes not from Hell, shes from Castlewood, South Dakota, a town of 666 souls according to the 2000 census the population was 666. (Wikipedia). It is not really all that far from Brookings, South Dakota (40 miles) which is the home of Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin. But, how do we know that Castlewood isnt really Hell? After all, its population is 666. No shitthat much is true.

Of course its patently unfair and ridiculous to hold this happenstance fact and a bunch of mumbo jumbo against Kristi Noem. But if the happenstance fact could be argued the other way you know very well that some wingnut Republican would be singing it loudly with gusto and a chorus.

Maybe the same can be argued against Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin as well. After all, Brookings, a small city of population 18,504 (again 2000 census) is pretty close to Castlewood. Actually, for South Dakota, Brookings is good size, within the top ten by population anyway. None of this is to be confused with another small town in the vicinity whose real name is Zell. (a mere 100 miles away from Castlewooda hop, skip amd a jump by South Dakota standards)

So we have the candidate from Hell against the incumbent from close to Hellneither being too horribly far from Zell. Given their relative positions that sounds about right.

So what are we supposed to with this ridiculous argument? If Obama had come from a town of 666 we would never have heard the end of it. Actually I want to hear the end of all these ridiculous arguments. But hey, after all, let her deny it.
