In case you missed it over the weekend – and I did* – here is video of South Dakota’s own John Thune delivering the GOP’s weekly radio address (family photo strategically positioned to his right).
Inside of 5 minutes, he tackles a range of issues – from free trade agreements to a call for a regulatory time out – all under the umbrella of “jobs.” He gets in his partisan jabs, too.
South Dakota gets a shout-out as a state with low unemployment thanks to the fact we are a right-to-work state full of good Republicans.
Trivia question: What is the dome visible out the window behind Thune? (And – bonus question – is that really his office? Or is it a set?)
I really don’t know, but I will find out and award some kind of awesome prize if anyone comments with the right answers.
*Thus is the downside of the South Dakota Festival of Books.
