What is up with your state?

Michelle asks, in a comment to the blog:
Seriously, what is up with your state?

South Dakota is a land of incredible beauty, contrasts, and above all irony.

This is the land that presented the Nation with Wild Bill Hickok, George Armstrong Custer, Crazy Horse, Laura Ingalls (and Rose WIlder), Black Elk. George McGovern, Bill Janklow, Tom Daschle and John Thune. Mount Rushmore and Keystone. I've been here for eleven years and I'm still very much a newcomer... it's a fascinating place.

Most of us are okay, really... but there is a wingnut fringe that has gotten too power-hungry. They overreached. In my opinion, in the long run, the far right of SD may have unwittingly really started a long-overdue correction to the politics of the whole Nation.. the shift back to reality-based leadership of our country is maybe, just maybe starting right here, right now.
