Close Encounters of the Hillary Kind

It turns out that Hillary was in Rapid City, SD and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation today about the same time as we were passing through.

Hillary is hunting some of South Dakota's delegate gold, such as it is. The SD Democratic primary is coming up on June 3; the absolute last one in the country.

I saw a grand total of one Hillary sign on our trip across the breadth of the state. The Obamessiah had no signs. I saw far more signs that read "God Loves You" and "The Wages of Sin is Death.". Not surprising really. I don't think South Dakota has gone Democratic in a presidential election since native son George McGovern ran in 1972.
