O'Bama The Man
My first presidential vote was for George McGovern in 1972. The Democratic candidate's middle name was Stanley and he proposed to end the War in Vietnam as well as cut Pentagon spending by 37%. Nixon won by a landslide. The South Dakotan's electoral wins were Massachusetts and DC. Afterwards Bay Staters said that our support was due to the fact that with our long history of corrupt politicians we recognized Nixon for a crook and two years later he was ousted from the White House for Watergate.
I have never voted for a GOP candidate.
I probably never will vote for one.
I'm solidly backing Barack O'Bama.
He's Irish and we always vote our own.
